Defensive Points + MVP's: Cal

Who led the way for the Oregon State defense? Time to take a look at the defensive points and grades from the Cal game.

After a rough outing in Boulder the week before, the Oregon State defense bounced back at home and held tight to help preserve a 47-44 overtime victory in Corvallis, the first PAC 12 win in twelve games for the Beavers and the first under the Gary Andersen era.

Cornerback Xavier Crawford earned his second Giant Killer Award of his career and season with a ten tackle, 1 tackle for loss and three pass break-up day. The Beavers secondary held a very potent Cal passing attack to 124 yards on Saturday.  Crawford was helped by defensive back teammates Devin ChappellTreston DecoudBrandon ArnoldKendall Hill and Dwayne Williams who added 27 tackles. Chappell also recorded an interception.

Linebacker Bright Ugwoegbu edged out Caleb Saulo for MVP honors. Saulo led the team with 13 tackles, but Ugwoegbu had nine tackles, including a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass break-up and a quarterback hurry to put him over the top.  The linebackers were active against Cal, Manase Hungalu added nine tackles and true freshman Joah Robinett played in his first game of the season, in which he started and added five tackles.

Defensive end Phillip Napoleon earned MVP honors for the defensive line. He finished the game with two tackles and a quarterback hurry.  Kalani VakameilaloPaisa SaveaSumner Houston and Baker Pritchard added six tackles for the Beavers.

Congratulations to this week's award winners.
