Corvallis, OR. — The Oregon State football team will have to outplay Arizona State this Saturday in order to earn its fifth win of the season, take one step closer to becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 2013 and send the seniors out on the right note for senior day.
To do that against the Sun Devils, both sides of the ball will have to make an appearance and play a full four quarters. Last week against Washington, Oregon State’s offense, which had been the team’s strength, was a complete no show.
The Beavers strung together a disappointing and pitiful 119-yard, no-score performance. This offensive unit took some time to reflect during film study and believe this week will yield a different outcome.
“[Our play against the Huskies was] obviously disappointing, embarrassing and just not us,” said Oregon State offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren. “I feel like we’ve done a lot of good things on offense this year. We’ve got some good players and competitive guys. I just don’t think that performance was us. We got a new opportunity this week to get a win. And I was pleased with the way the guys practiced today.”
This program will honor 16 seniors including, Gus Lavaka, Jake Luton, Artavis Pierce, Blake Bandel and Shawn Wilson to name a few. It will be the last time these Beavers run out of the tunnel and play in front of a loyal crowd at Reser Stadium.
Kickoff against the Sun Devils is set for 4:30 p.m. on Saturday at Reser Stadium.
