Oregon State had good success throwing to the tight end against the Buffalo defense, hook routes at the sticks, flat routes at the goal line, drag routes. So far Lyerla's junior season has been one of frustration, nagging injury, illness and false starts, and he's too talented to waste.

Earlier in the year, I wrote an article about the Ducks’ 2013 prospects without Chip Kelly at the helm. I guessed that the talent of our athletes would hold true despite some scheme changes, and that the blueprint for success at our school had already been laid. Now that I have had a chance to observe some of the fine points of new head coach...
