OSU Likes Their Pac-12 Chances
Oregon State went 10-3 last season and returns its most talented team since coach Jonathan Smith arrived in 2018 to take over a program that had been 1-11 the previous season amid coaching turmoil. Additionally, the Beavers will be playing their home games inside renovated Reser Stadium after their home field spent most of last year as a construction zone. The Beavers are hoping the product on the field can keep the remodeled stadium rocking like it did a season ago when Oregon State won seven of its final eight games, including a rivalry win over Oregon.
