The 1960 Oregon State Beavers football team represented Oregon State College in the 1960 college football season. The Beavers ended this season with six wins, three losses, and a tie. The Gotham Bowl was scheduled to premiere at Yankee Stadium in 1960 with Holy Cross as the host team. However, after Oregon State was invited, Holy Cross was uninvited in hopes of finding a better match-up. The game was eventually canceled when no opponent could be found for Oregon State. The Beavers scored 197 points and allowed 145 points. The team was led by head coach Tommy Prothro. The 1960 season was the last for Oregon State College. The university's current title, Oregon State University, was adopted on March 6, 1961 by a legislative act signed into law by Governor Mark Hatfield.
