What are the Beavs' bowl odds?

GARY ANDERSEN IS held in high regard as a football coach. But at least one Las Vegas oddsmaker sees a large rebuilding project in store for Andersen at Oregon State starting in 2015.

Las Vegas oddsmaker Chris Andrews released his over/under win totals on againstthenumber.com and pegged the Beavers' over/under at four wins in 2015.

Six wins are required to attain bowl eligibility.

Andrews pegs seven Pac-12 teams -- Oregon, UCLA, Stanford, ASU, USC, Utah and Arizona -- were all at seven or greater.

Cal and WSU were pegged with a five-win over/under, Colorado was at 4.5 and Washington was also listed at four.

The start of fall camp is still 2 1/2 months away and most recruiting classes have yet to arrive but that doesn't mean there will be any shortage of those predicting college football wins and losses between now and and then.

Oregon State no doubt faces significant challenges in Andersen's first season, including breaking in a new starting quarterback and replacing nine defensive starters off a unti that was inconsistent last year.

But Andersen and his staff put together a good recruiting class despite a short time frame and several could provide an immediate boost.

The Beavs may sneak up on a few teams this year and their non-conference schedule is favorable. They open with Weber State, play a Michigan team that has underwhelmed in recent years and finish with San Jose State.

They play Stanford, Colorado, UCLA and Washington at home, with road games at Arizona, WSU, Utah, Cal and Oregon.
