Oregon State Beavers Running Game Will Shine In 2013

With the upcoming Oregon State Beavers football season only a few weeks away, there are definitely things to look forward to seeing. Sure, there are question marks surrounding the issue at quarterback between Sean Mannion and Cody Vaz. And the question of who fills in the gigantic shoes Markus Wheaton left behind at wide receiver.

Getting Closer To Oregon State Beavers Football

As the days of summer wind down, anticipation draws toward one of the best times of the year: football season. And despite the thud (Alamo Bowl loss) left over from last year’s 9-4 Oregon State Beavers, hopes are riding high again for this year’s squad. With that in mind, I will look at the keys (not necessarily in any order) for success. Quarterback play. I remember a few...

Both players traded off last season when the Beavers went 9-4 and finished third in the Pac-12 North. And both will compete for the starter's job when fall camp opens for Oregon State on Monday.

Dear Mike Riley, I am writing in search of some answers that only you can give.

But I have to ask: What happened to you? Where did you go? You are a big time college coach, Division I. You have been in this...

IT WASN'T ABOUT the passing game or the ability to run the football. The real battle Saturday night in the Alamo Bowl was in the trenches - and both defensive lines asserted their will.
