What to Know
The Oregon State Beavers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Oregon State and the Utah Utes will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 10:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The Beavers will be strutting in after a win while Utah will be stumbling in from a loss.
Oregon State came out on top in a nail-biter against the Oregon Ducks last week, sneaking past 41-38. RB Jermar Jefferson had a dynamite game for Oregon State; he rushed for two TDs and 226 yards on 29 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the contest was Jefferson's 82-yard touchdown rush in the first quarter.
Utah suffered a bitter defeat last week, failing to capitalize on an early lead against the Washington Huskies. The Utes fell in a 24-21 heartbreaker. They were up 21 to nothing at the end of the half but somehow couldn't manage to seal the deal. No one had a standout game offensively for Utah, but they got scores from WR Bryan Thompson and RB Devin Brumfield.
The Beavers have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 11 point spread they are up against. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.
Oregon State was pulverized by Utah 52-7 when the two teams previously met in October of last year. Can Oregon State avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
