Can Beavs stop USC's running game?

OREGON STATE IS up against it this week as maybe the Beavers (4-5, 3-3 Pac-10) haven't been challenged all season. And that's saying a lot, considering Oregon State has played TCU and Boise State. But this time around, it is far more than the opponent -- even as difficult a problem as USC (7-3, 4-3) may pose.

SPRING: What we've learned - Week 5

WILL THE OFFENSIVE LINE see some shuffling between now and the season opener? Assistant Mike Cavanaugh was hinting strongly at it during the final week of spring, and OT Wilder McAndrews was the reason why. A ball-hawking secondary was omnipresent, the spring game on offense offered mixed results and the re-emergence of Suaesi Tuimauei were all among the things we learned in Week 5..
