CORVALLIS, Ore. -- With no fans able to attend Pac-12 conference football games this season, Oregon State got creative.
The school sold about 1,500 fan cutouts for the 2020 football season opener against Washington State. The cutouts filled the student section and terrace area inside Reser Stadium.
There were cutouts of recent graduates from the class of 2020, loyal season ticket holders, young fans and even pets.
Despite pumping fake crowd noise and music throughout the game, Oregon State head coach Jonathan Smith said the team missed having their fans.
"It's definitely different," he said. "You know, we missed Beaver Nation. They impact the game."
Oregon State will continue selling fan cutouts throughout November. Each cutout is 33 by 18 inches and cost between $30 to 50.
