Welcome to the latest edition of Football Friday on a Thursday. On the menu this week... Beaver. Yup, we are heading to Corvallis to take on the resurgent Beavs of Oregon State. No sooner had Beaver coach Mike Riley finished toweling off after taking a quick dip in the Sutras Hot Tub, then he was all wet again from the cannonball splash Jeff Tedford made.
