2008 RETRO GAME 6: WSU at Oregon State

AFTER THE LOST opportunity that was Utah, Oregon State looked to bounce back strong in their matchup with Washington State. Mission accomplished and then some, as the Beavers put up over 500 yards on offense on the board, the D fired on all cylinders in the third quarter and OSU turned a single digit first half lead into a romp with a dominant performance on both sides of the ball.
