Oregon State Pulls A Tough Win Out Of Berkeley

Oregon State spent a lot of time answering tough questions Saturday in Berkeley, and the Beavers had enough good answers to pull out a 21-17 win against California.

The first question was whether the Beavers would bounce back after last week’s 52-7 blowout loss to Utah. Jumping out to a 14-0 first half lead against Cal, and another of the best defenses in the country, never mind the conference, was a definite yes.

Utes Give Beavers A Dose Of Reality

Beaver Nation collectively came into Saturday night’s homecoming contest encouraged by recent relative success, and if not expecting a homecoming win for the first time in years, they at least thought a competitive effort, at least for a while, was a reasonable to hope for possibility.

The 15th ranked Utah Utes quickly gave Oregon State a dose of reality, and then proceeded for 3 1/4 hours to drive the point home that the Beavers are still a long way from being big enough, strong enough, fast enough, deep enough, well coached enough, or experienced enough.

It was 21-0 before the end of the 1st quarter, 35-0 at halftime, and 49-0 well before the end of the 3rd quarter, on the way to 52-0 before a Beaver score 56 seconds before the end produced the 52-7 blowout that is one of the 6th worst losses Oregon State has suffered in their history at Parker/Reser Stadium.

Oregon State Overwhelms UCLA

Oregon State got off to a fast start Saturday night against UCLA, and then the Beavers not only repelled the Bruins rally, they pulled away to win 48-31 in the Rose Bowl.

Senior quarterback Jake Luton was spectacular in leading the winning effort, throwing for 5 touchdowns and running for a 6th to cap a 14 play drive that burned nearly 7 minutes, and all 3 of UCLA’s timeouts, to seal the win. Luton also “ran” (got behind a pair of o-linemen and stretched out his 6’6″ frame) for a yard on a 3rd & 1 and a 4th & 1 to keep key drives alive.

Luton threw for 285 yards, completing 18 of 26 passes.

The 6 touchdowns accounted for tied the Oregon State game record, joining Sean Mannion, Derek Anderson, and Terry Baker.
