Beavs add home and home w/ Hawaii

THE BEAVERS HAVE finalized another home-and-home series with Hawaii, beginning with the 2011 season at Aloha Stadium.

The Beavers will travel to Honolulu for a Sat., Dec. 3 game in 2011, the week after the Civil War. The Warriors will return to Corvallis on Sept. 13, 2014.

With the addition of the game at Hawaii, per NCAA rules, OSU will now play a 13-game schedule in 2011. The Beavers are seeking two non-conference games, likely for September. OSU already has scheduled the Sept. 10 game at Wisconsin.

Oregon State and Hawaii recently completed a two-game home-and-home series. The Beavers opened the 2008 home season at Reser Stadium with a 45-7 victory and OSU concluded the 2006 regular season with a 35-32 victory at No. 24 Hawaii.

"This is a great series for both programs," OSU head coach Mike Riley said. "There are many connections between both states and schools; it's a good experience for our players and I think it makes sense for both programs to play each other on a regular basis."
