Oregon State finally gets to play its opener.
The No. 16 Beavers will host Nicholls State on Saturday. The game was supposed to be played on Sept. 1, but it was postponed when Hurricane Isaac bore down on the Colonels' Thibodeaux, La., campus. Officials for both schools decided it would be best to reschedule the game out of concern for the athletes impacted by the storm.
Three months later, Oregon State is 8-3 overall and awaiting a bowl bid on Sunday. The Beavers are possibly headed to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego on Dec. 27, and representatives for that bowl will be in Corvallis for the game against the Colonels.

WHILE MOST EVERYONE ELSE has finished their college football season, Oregon State still has one game to go. Nicholls State isn’t expect to seriously challenge Oregon State (in order to cover every base, neither was Sac State in the 2011 opener. If the Beavs move to 9-3, which bowl will they be headed to?

The Beavers on Saturday after the Nicholls State game will, unless disaster strikes, go from a 3-9 mark last season to a 9-3 record in 2012.
