Thanks to defense, Beavers survive another week
Oregon State overcomes a shaky game by the offense and holds off Washington State 19-6, moving to 4-0 on the season.
There’s no win without the defense, as they put together an amazing game against a strong passing attack. It was a huge step forward after last week’s performance against Arizona.
Health and fundamentals at forefront of Beavs D
The 2011 Beavers defense was horrid, ranking in the bottom of most major stat categories in the Pac-12.
Opponents averaged over 30 points and 411 yards per game. OSU had the worst run defense in the conference, with opponents averaging a near 198.6 yards per game on the ground.
Fast forward to 2012, and it’s a different story.
