INJURY UPDATE: There were no major injuries Saturday although CB James Dockery missed the second half with a bruised arm. DT Brennan Olander (knee) and CB
Keynan Parker (shoulder) are both expected to be back at practice this week.
WR Darrell Catchings (shoulder) and Ryan McCants (knee) remain out.
Catchings has another doctor appointment this week while coaches are hoping McCants and Catchings can start practicing next week.
TAKING FOUR?: Four quarterbacks might travel to Las Vegas. QB Sean Canfield will once again start with Ryan Katz serving as the backup. Junior Peter Lalich will serve as the emergency backup, No. 3 on the depth chart, if Lyle Moevao is not game ready.
ADD ANOTHER ONE: WR Damola Adeniji has been awarded a scholarship. He grabbed three passes for 45 yards in his first career start. A scholarship became available when OT Brent McNeil decided to leave the program last week.
In the first preseasaon editions, OSU was ranked No. 25 in the Coaches' poll and on the doorstep, at No. 26, in the AP poll.
Want to do a little projecting anyway? Same here.
None of the teams immediately above Oregon State lost. Still, three things to watch for -- Iowa, ranked No. 22, barely got by Northern Iowa and may slip a bit.
Florida State, slotted at 18th and 19th in the AP and Coaches' polls respectively, plays unranked Miami later tonight.
Other than that, Oregon was one of the few teams slotted around the Top 15 who lost. Will the Beavs move up past the Ducks? Will the Ducks fall out of the Top 25? We don't think Oregon will fall far enough for either of those things to happen. Stay tuned.
CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS: We'll have our customary TV/Radio/Internet article later but for those of you not making the road trip to Vegas, you might want to start looking now to see if the game is listed in your provider's guide. The game will be broadcast, in HD, by CBS College Sports.
THE LINE: The Beavers opened as an 8.5-point favorite. OSU as of Monday morning was down to a 7-point pick.
