The Oregon State Beavers have taken a new approach on recruiting. They have taken to the sky.
This is a first when it comes to recruiting for college football. Oregon State has been flying a plane with an electronic marquee on the bottom of its wings, displaying “GO BEAVS” and “OREGON STATE FOOTBALL” on them.
The plane flys over different high school football games throughout...
Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion suffered a knee injury earlier in the year and it wasn’t known whether or not he’d be back this season, and if he would, when.

With a backup quarterback, Oregon State’s offense passed for 332 yards against BYU’s secondary. The Beavers added another 118 yards on the ground, and when it was all said and done, scored 35 offensive points against what was considered a very good BYU defense. So what happened?
LOST AMID THE breakout performance of Oregon State quarterback Cody Vaz on Saturday, a position group quietly making things possible for the Beavs during their 5-0 start. Yes, the offensive line has certainly and significantly improved in the area of pass protection, enabling Vaz and Sean Mannion before him to shine very brightly indeed this season. But that’s not who we’re talking about…
Billy Green was in attendance during BYU’s homecoming game against Oregon State. This was the first BYU game Green had ever attended. The game day atmosphere and overall experience exceeded his expectations.
