Beavs getting geared up for ASU

CORVALLIS -- The first team units scrimmaged against each other about 10-12 snaps Wednesday and while much of the focus has been on the o-line and the return of Tavita Thompson this week, don't forget about the Oregon State defensive ends. Victor Butler kicked off the practice session with a "sack" of QB Lyle Moevao on the very first play.

A nice problem to have: 2 capable RT starters

CHEMISTRY IS CRITICAL on the offensive line, a good unit gets to where they can pretty much predict each other's movements and have a lot of success doing it. But what do you do when the line is playing good ball but another potentially important piece to the puzzle becomes available? If you're Mike Riley, you look at playing Tavita Thompson...and Mike Remmers, at the right tackle spot.

How Oregon State can beat No. 1

OREGON STATE FACES No. 1 USC a week from Thursday. The Beavs played their best of the season this past week but work clearly remains. Two seasons ago, the Beavers snapped USC's 27-game Pac-10 winning streak and one of the biggest reasons why wasn't found in the box score or in reviewing game tape. It's the one thing OSU must have if they are going to beat the Trojans two of the past three years.
