Well, one thing is for sure when it comes to the football season for the Oregon State Beavers: it has not been boring. In the first game, they were a 26-point favorite against FCS division foe Eastern Washington, only to lose 49-46. Then, against Hawaii, the game was tied at halftime before the Beavers pulled away in the second half, 33-14. And in the most recent game at Utah, it took three interceptions by the OSU defense and superman performances by quarterback Sean Mannion (443 passing yards, 5 touchdowns) and wide receiver Brandin Cooks (210 reception yards, 3 touchdowns) to scratch out the overtime victory, 51-48.

I presented the numbers to back up my case and in case my readers don’t lean on numbers the same way that I do, I discussed...

OSU has fight on their hands at half: 17-14

OREGON STATE'S DEFENSE against San Diego State came out flatter than three day old Dr. Pepper and OSU quickly trailed 7-0. The Beavs flipped the switch and shut the Aztecs down the next two possessions but poor tackling, indifferent pursuit and bad angles were to surface again.
