Beavers fire on all cylinders, crush Huskies
THE OREGON STATE defense blasted the UW for much of the first half in Saturday's season finale at Reser. Sacks, tackles for loss, takeaways -- the OSU stop corps was busy indeed. The Beaver offense was only slightly less sharp. Midway through the second quarter, OSU had already scored two touchdowns and two field goals for a 20-0 lead in what turned out to be a 48-21 romp that wasn't that close.
It seems hard to believe. Only a few weeks ago, Beaver fans were lamenting the lack of pressure up front on defense, a tepid sack total and various other defensive maladies ... more from BF.C.
ADENIJI: ‘I just dropped the knee’
While the big story of the day was the dominating Oregon State win over Washington, the team that beat USC, and the loss by that USC team on Saturday at the hands of Stanford, all of that almost certainly fell by the wayside upon retrospect for Damola Adeniji. Because the Beavers’ starting wide receiver asked a life changing question on Saturday. And she said Yes.
It was Senior Day at OSU, and numerous upperclassmen were recognized by Beaver Nation. But in a true underdog story, senior wideout Damola Adeniji’s is hard to top ... more from BF.C.

Oregon State routs Washington
Washington headed into their game with Oregon State this week with a slight chance at getting bowl-eligible should they win their last three games. However, those dreams were shot down early in a 48-21 rout by the Beavers who ran up 379 yards of offense and got big days from quarterback Sean Canfield as well as the Rodgers brothers.
Canfield only threw for 174 yards, but had four touchdown passes -- two each to WR James Rodgers and TE Joe Halahuni -- and RB Jacquizz Rodgers rumbled for 156 yards and two more touchdowns to lead the way for the Beavers, but it was their swarming defense that spelled doom for the Huskies ... more from DawgMan.com.
