AROUND THE WEB
IT'S HARD TO put enough emphasis on this coming game for Oregon State. They go on the road for the first time this season -- and open Pac-12 play. The Beavs lost three starters to injury at two positions they could least afford to. A record of 2-1 for the Beavs will look and feel a whole lot different than would 1-2. Meanwhile, Utah will come in undefeated and feeling good about themselves.
Sean Mannion threw for 372 yards and four touchdowns and Oregon State rebounded from a stunning loss in their season opener with a 33-14 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.
Brandin Cooks had seven catches for 92 yards and two scores for the Beavers (1-1), who fell 49-46 at home last week to lower division Eastern Washington.
Oregon State had 508 yards of total offense while Hawaii...
OSU has big bounce back
After a stunning Week 1 loss to FCS opponent Eastern Washington, the OSU Beavers needed a win.
And a defense.
Luckily they got both in a bounce back win against Hawaii. Despite a shaky second quarter, the Beavs dominated both sides of the ball in this one. OSU’s offense continued to roll with over 500 yards, while the D limited the Rainbow Warriors to just...
OREGON STATE, in the second straight game they were favored heavily in, is once again in a close one. The Beavs are tied with Hawaii at the half, 14-14.

SO YOU’RE WORRIED about the Beavs today based on what happened in the opener. Vegas isn’t. Indeed, Oregon State opened at more than a three-touchdown favorite, and the line has only gone up.
IT WASN'T ALWAYS pretty but Oregon State took command in the second half to even their mark at 1-1 with a 33-14 win over Hawaii.
CORVALLIS – Call it a cookie cutter performance from Oregon State that gave them the 33-14 win over Hawaii. OSU’s defense held tough for much of the night. Sean Mannion threw his first interception of the season, but made up for it and then some with four touchdowns and some surprise rushing yardage. But there's much more to this win - both good and bad - that might have met the eye.
