Beavers fill out 2016, future schedules

OREGON STATE AD Bob De Carolis announced five additions to future Oregon State football schedules on Thursday. The Beavers have added a home-and-home series with Big XII Conference member Oklahoma State, plus three additional home dates with Big Sky Conference teams from the Football Championship Subdivision, including a game coming this season.

Oregon State and Oklahoma State will meet for the first time in football on Aug. 31, 2019 at Reser Stadium with Oregon State making the return trip to Stillwater on Sept. 5, 2020. The Cowboys’ visit to Corvallis will be the first for a Big XII team since Baylor in 1998.

Oregon State has also completed its non-conference slate for 2016 with the addition of Idaho State on Sept. 17.

The ’16 schedule also includes a season opening trip to Minnesota Sept. 1 and a visit from Boise State on Sept. 24. The Beavers defeated ISU in the only meeting between the two programs in 2007, 61-10.

Portland State returns to OSU’s schedule for the season opener Sept. 2, 2017. The matchup will be the fifth in the series with the Beavers winning all four previous games, including 29-14 in the 2014 opener.

The ’17 season features all home non-conference games for the first time since 1997 -- Sept. 9 vs. Minnesota and Sept. 16 vs. Nevada.

The 2018 none conference schedule is also complete with the addition of Southern Utah on Sept. 8, 2018 in Corvallis. Southern Utah is the lone non-conference home game for the Beavers, with a Sept. 1 season opener at Ohio State and a Sept. 15 tilt at Nevada.

"With the rigors of the nine-game Pac-12 Conference schedule; It’s very important to have a balance in the non-conference portion,” De Carolis said. “The future schedule is a good mix of Power 5 conference members and interesting regional games including our backyard FCS members from the Big Sky Conference."

Oregon State opens fall camp on Saturday, Aug. 8 and opens the new era Friday, Sept. 4 against the Weber State Wildcats in a nationally televised game. Season tickets, along with other enhanced offers, are available for the coming season for as little as $150.
