POLLS: Beavs end regular season in Top 20

THE POLL RESULTS post-regular season are in. As expected, Oregon State didn't fall too far in either the Associated Press or USA Today Coaches' poll after a tight loss on the road in the Civil War. And while the disappointment of a loss in the regular season finale still stings, finishing the regular season ranked in the Top 20 is something that should bring a smile to Beaver Nation.

Oregon State following the loss at Autzen dropped but three spots in the AP poll this week -- to No. 16. They were ranked No. 13 coming into the regular season finale.

Over in the USA Today Coaches' Poll, Oregon State fell four spots to No. 20.

Two Pac-10 teams fell out of the Top 25 polls after losses yesterday -- USC and Cal.

In addition to Oregon State (No. 16, 20), the Pac-10 teams finishing the regular season ranked in the polls are Oregon (7), Stanford (19, 21) and Arizona (22, 23).

Oregon State is expected to officially announce this afternoon that they have accepted a bid to play in the Las Vegas Bowl. BF.C will be back with news and context following the announcement.
