Gary Andersen spoke to the media as the Beavers start their week of prep for Colorado.
"They are playing well. They are playing very well on offense and they execute on a high level and defensively they are aggressive and very well coached," Andersen said.
While Boise is a very talented team and likes to play up tempo, Andersen believes Colorado will be an even bigger test.
"We got tested, but it is nothing like what how we will be tested this week," he said. "That is not Boise's number one spot, they do it and they have success at it and we did not handle it well as a staff and in turn we didn't handle it well as a group on that first drive. If that happens to us this week, we'll have big problems.
Oregon State returned to the practice field on Monday as they look to bounce back from the loss to Boise in which they saw a new quarterback in freshman walk-on Conor Blount who came in for Darell Garretson in the second half.
"Darell will get himself back, I think he's shown that he is a talented young man," Andersen said.
