Mike Riley returns for his 12th consecutive season as the Oregon State head coach and 14th overall as he coached the Beavers in 1997 and 1998 before spending three seasons as the San Diego Chargers head coach. Riley has put together a couple of satisfactory seasons while reaching two bowl games, but has managed to only reach 10 wins once during his tenure at Oregon State. The...
CORVALLIS – Oregon State's offense was heating up Wednesday despite the cold weather and part of the reason was a new face -- the Beavs brought a defender into the offensive formations. Oh yes, we’re looking right at you, Dylan Wynn. Meanwhile, OSU’s defensive line showed versatility in the trenches and in their red zone work, and Brandin Cooks made his return to practice.

Oregon State an eight-point favorite over San Diego State
VegasInsider.com has Oregon State as an eight point favorite over San Diego State on the road.
The Beavers will kickoff against the Aztecs at 5:30 p.m. (MT) on the CBSSports Networks. Oregon State comes into the game with a 2-1 record, having bounced back from an opening game...
CORVALLIS – Defensive leadership has been a hot topic this week and it’s time to let the Oregon State players and coaches have their say. BF.C’s Drew Wilson-McGrath asked Dylan Wynn and D.J. Alexander to weigh in, plus assistants Rod Perry Trent Bray too.
LIGHTNING DOES indeed strike twice. Oregon State scored a few years back with DE Dylan Wynn out of Concord, Calif. and storied De La Salle High. On Tuesday, they received a verbal from a guy who could well be the spitting image of Wynn – Sumner Houston, a 3-star prospect with the same type of high-rev motor. But will he line up on the edge like Wynn, or will it be something different...
Winning the battle at the line
If you’re not sure what this thing is all about, check out the first in the series which details Markus Wheaton and Brandin Cooks.
For today’s deadly Beaver tandem, we’re looking at duel defensive ends Scott Crichton and Dylan Wynn.
Both players exploded on the scene in 2011 as freshmen (Wynn a true freshman, Crichton a redshirt) and have continued...
The defense came to the rescue again for Oregon State.
Utah's four turnovers - two lost fumbles and two interceptions - were the difference in the Beavers' 21-7 win over the Utes in a cold, drizzly game Saturday night.
The reward was that Oregon State (6-0, 4-0 Pac-12) became bowl eligible and the next day popped up a place in the rankings to No. 7. The Beavers also moved...

Travis Wilson took the blame.
Utah's freshman quarterback was apologetic after his team's 21-7 loss to No. 8 Oregon State on Saturday night.
''They played hard, they played physical, but ultimately it was my fault. I didn't take care of the football and threw two picks,'' he said. ''And that just can't happen.''
Wilson threw for...

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.
Battle of redemption
I’m going to say it now. This could be the OSU Beavers biggest game of the season.
This is a battle of redemption. Oregon State vs. UCLA. Two teams with storied histories. Two teams trying to claw their way back into relevancy. Two teams that are undefeated.
Matchup: Oregon St. vs. UCLA (19)
Venue: Rose Bowl (Los Angeles, CA)
Game time, TV: 12:30 pm (PST)...
