Oct. 2 | at No. 15 Utah | L, 28-31
SHORT RECAP: In the one that got away, Oregon State dominated Utah for virtually the entire second half and held an 8-[pint lead late. But with 2:11 on the clock, Utah went 80 yards in 42 seconds and a questionable penalty gave them new life on the 2-point try. The Beaver offense went three and out, Utah drove 34 yards and kicked the game winning field goal. The loss overshadowed a mostly stout effort by the Beaver stop corps as Slade Norris and Stephen Paea combined for four sacks.
KEY STAT: 0 for 2 - The Beavers success rate on two point conversions that were triggered by a missed PAT.
KEY QUOTE: "Tough loss for us. We came out and gave it our all but we didn’t make the plays at the end when we had to. I honestly don't know what happened. We were playing a great game and when it came down to it, we didn’t make the plays." - DE Slade Norris
