POLL TRACKER: No. 24 wins but loses AP ground

OREGON STATE WENT out and won a non-conference game on the road in the blazing heat. But the writers yawned. Meanwhile in the USAToday Coaches' Poll, the Beavers hung steady at No. 24 in the land. OSU now points towards a big time college football tilt, one between two nationally ranked teams, slated for this coming Saturday in Corvallis.

Oregon State maintained their position in Coaches' poll this week, placing No. 24.

But following the road win over UNLV, the writers in the Associated Press poll dropped the Beavs from 113 to 64 points and dropped them two notches, to 28th place.

The previous week in the AP, the Beavs lost ground, from 122 to 113 votes, after handily beating Portland State.

That AP streak will end if Oregon State can take care of business this week -- OSU will take part a nationally televised battle between two Top 25 teams.

The Beavers play host to Cincinnati on Saturday, ranked No. 17 and 21, respectively in the AP and Coaches'. And the Bearcats look to be a dynamic crew, having outscored their first two opponents 117-18.
