CIVIL WAR: Beavs could be down to one at RB

JUST A FEW weeks ago, Mike Riley was feeling pretty darned good about his running back depth. Now, headed into a must-win Civil War to extend their season, Oregon State could be down to just one.

OSU 35, ASU 27: Where did that come from?

CORVALLIS – Where did that come from? After lamenting a lack of big plays for a majority of the season, the Beavers came through in a big way, upsetting No. 6 Arizona State, 35-27 in the process. The Beavers quite literally sprinted out to an early lead - Storm Woods broke a 78-yard touchdown run, and shortly after that Terron Ward scored on a 66-yard run – both in the first quarter.

Beavers lose the mental game and in huge way

MUCH OF WHAT happened in Corvallis on Saturday defied reason. There were statistical anomalies, like the No. 2 pass defense in the Pac-12 allowing a redshirt freshman QB in his first start to go wild, passing for 471 yards, 5 TDs and no INTs. There were head-scratchers, such as OSU calling for a fair catch on a kickoff at the 20-yard line against one of the worst Pac-12 coverage units in memory.

HALFTIME: Beavs trail 21-16 at home

EVERYTHING OSU HAS drawn criticism for this season was on display in the first half against Wazzu. Take a 10-lead and then take your foot off the gas? Check. Poor clock management? Check. Go away from the run? You bet. OSU had only 11 yards rushing in the first half. They trail 21-16 at the break. And they burned through precious seconds at the end of the half and settled for a field goal.

A heart-stopping, heartbreaking loss for OSU

SOMEONE WAS GOING to have their hearts broken in this one. That became all too evident during a rollercoaster fourth quarter. Alas for Beaver Nation, that someone turned out to be Oregon State in a wild, 29-23 overtime loss to No. 20 Utah.

OSU NOTES: Looking back at CU, ahead to Utah

THE BEAVS DON’T play again until a week from Thursday, which will give them a chance to rest up and get some guys healthier. Mike Riley, though, says Oregon State is in pretty good shape injury-wise coming out of the Colorado win.

OREGON STATE RAN only 30 plays in the first half against Colorado, with 13 of those being rushes. But the Beavs, trailing at the break 21-20, went more to the ground in the second half and it showed up in the final score. Indeed, Oregon State ran 21 times over the final two quarters on their way to a 36-31 victory in Boulder.

Riley: Oregon State's Bolden out for USC

OREGON STATE's 28-7 win over San Diego State came at a price. Wide receiver Victor Bolden will miss 10-14 days after dislocating a finger that requires surgery.
