Corvallis, OR. — The Oregon State football program held its second fall scrimmage in preparation of the 2019 season. With week one against the Oklahoma State Cowboys less than two weeks away, the Beavers competed in a scrimmage to simulate the fast paced tempo of a real game.

Sixth-year quarterback Jake Luton led the first team offense on a 99 yard touchdown drive to start the scrimmage, capped by an acrobatic touchdown run by star running back Jermar Jefferson.

Four-star transfer quarterback Tristan Gebbia also took reps with the first string. He completed a number of first down throws and led the Beavers to a touchdown drive himself after throwing a fade in the end zone to red shirt senior wide receiver Aaron Short.

However, head coach Jonathan Smith has still not named a starter for week one. Smith said earlier in the week the coaching staff could make a decision as early as the middle of next week. But there is no time frame on making that decision.

The special teams unit also played extremely well with a couple of big time kickoff returns and a punt return touchdown by red shirt freshman Jesiah Irish.

"Yeah we were pleased with a lot of the things they did," said Smith. "I'm impressed with the offense's first drive to go 99 yards and turn it around on the goal line. So when you look at this tape, I was pleased with their energy and the way they tackled. But you now, we had too many penalities. That's why it's important to put these guys in this type of stage. I think we can build some things on both sides of the ball that we can do some things successfully."
