    Week 1
    FCS West @ Oregon State

    This one was a laugher from the beginning, and it was all Oregon State could do to not put up a boatload of points. Starters were pulled with 1:00 left in the first half, and the clock was run on offense for the entire second half. Even then, the Beavers still piled up 62 points on a helpless FCS school. The OSU defense had 12 sacks, forced 3 turnovers (one brought back 81 yards for a TD by a 2nd string DE), and a 75 yard punt return for a score. None of the Beaver drives started inside their side of the 50, resulting in very few total yards as a team. The starting defense also did not allow a first down (although those backup chumps allowed 7!). All in all, it really was not a game to judge the talent on this squad, or have an idea of what the team is capable of. Week 2 promises to show a little more with a trip to Wisconsin.

    Players of the game:
    Offense - HB Ryan McCants - 16 carries for 99 yards, 5 TDs
    Defense - DT Dominic Glover - 4 tackles, 3 sacks

    Haha. What's funny is I think the CPU actually took out the starting QB near the end. I don't recall him being hurt, but they had 2 QB's with stats. Maybe there was an injury that I didn't notice.

    Haha. Part of the reason I took Oregon State was for all the double entendres it would allow. I need to play South Carolina sometime. "The Cocks are deep in Beaver territory..."

    Oregon State 24, Wisconsin 16

    My first user game in The Tradition did not disappoint. This game was a classic. Wisconsin won the toss and elected to kick. The Beavers put together a solid drive, but stalled outside of field goal range. The Badgers were able to get to about midfield on their first possession before having to punt. The ensuing punt was downed at the 1 yard line (both of us swear the thing hit the ref and stopped, lol). The very next play saw Oregon State QB Ryan Katz get sacked in the end zone for a safety. Things were not looking good for the Beavers at that point.

    Wisconsin took over again after the free kick and Russell Wilson found Nick Toon streaking down the right sideline and hit him for a 45 yard TD. 9-0 Badgers now.

    If OSU ever needed to put together a drive with points, now was the time. A methodical drive mixing the pass and the run paid off. Wisconsin showed blitz, but the d-backs backed off at the last minute. It was just a smidge late, though, as Katz found TE Joe Halahuni streaking up the field and hit him with a quick pass. The Badger defenders came just shy of getting him before the goal line. Wisconsin 9, Oregon State 7.

    The teams would trade a couple of possessions, with Oregon State adding a 42 yard FG to take the lead going into halftime, 10-9.

    Having kicked to start the game, Wisconsin receives to start the second half. A nice drive is put together eating up 3:22 of clock and culminating in a 3 yard TD run by HB James White. Wisconsin 16, Oregon State 10.

    At this point, the defensive coaches let loose on the players, hoping for some changes before things got out of hand again. The offense was able to move the ball, but could never get anything going. "It's up to us!" was heard from a defensive huddle to start the 4th quarter. They would not disappoint. Russell Wilson was probably missing North Carolina at this point, as his abilities seemed to falter. Thinking he saw man defense, he fired off a quick pass to the flat. This was picked off by CB Jordan Poyer and returned 31 yards to put the Beavers back on top, 17-16. The next possession would have Wilson fumbling the ball away on a scramble giving the Beavers wonderful field position. Looking for another score, the Beavers handed it off to their FB, only to see him fumble it away inside the 10. Wisconsin would start the hurry-up offense and was pushing the ball down the field in a hurry. A huge sack on second down led to a 3rd and 20 or so from just inside Beaver territory with around 30 seconds to go. The next play would see Wilson not only get sacked, but put the ball on the turf. MLB Rueben Robinson scooped it up and hustled it 47 yards into the end zone to put Oregon State up 24-16. A couple of desperation passes later and the game was over.

    The difference in the game was turnovers (4 for Wisconsin, 1 for Oregon State), as well as Oregon State's d-line having a huge game (8 sacks and a number of hurries and knockdowns).

    Players of the game for Oregon State:
    Offense - TE Joe Halahuni - 4 catches for 62 yards and a TD
    Defense - MLB Rueben Robinson - 6 solo tackles, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery, 1 TD
    Honorable Mention on Defense - DE Taylor Henry and DE Andrew Seumalo - each had 3 sacks

    Oregon State has a bye in week 3 and will return to action in week 4 hosting UCLA in their Pac 12 opener.

    4 turnovers is brutal and that makes a big difference, especially in a game that was a 1 possession game.

    And especially when two of them are returned for touchdowns.

    4 Turnovers is a killer, The QB seems to put a lot more balls on the turf this season on sacks. Another reason to get rid of the pill.

    Oregon State 24, Arizona State 14

    Oregon State came into their first road Pac-12 game trying to maintain their defensive dominance (2 shutouts, and 5 straight quarters without giving up a point). ASU would win the toss and elect to defer. Oregon State would start a decent drive, but would lose starting HB Ryan McCants for 2 quarters due to injury. The end result was OSU being stopped in ASU territory, but then pushing the FG attempt wide. ASU would put together a drive of their own, but lose the ball on a fumble when Osweiler was sacked. End of the first quarter score: Oregon State 0, Arizona State 0.

    The Beavers would put the first points on the board early in the second quarter. After being stopped in the red zone, they had to settle for a 38 yard FG. The defense would be solid again, holding the Sun Devils to small gains before forcing another punt. The Beavers drove down the field but again could not punch it into the end zone, settling for a 32 yard FG as time expired. Score at the half was Oregon State 6, Arizona State 0.

    Arizona State would receive the kick to start the second half. The first play would see Oregon State picking the ball off at the ASU 28 yard line. Again, the Sun Devil defense would step up and hold the Beavers to a FG. On ASU's next possession, HB Cameron Marshall would run straight up the middle for 79 yards and TD, cutting the score to 9-7. Oregon State's next possession would give the Sun Devils their first lead, as QB Ryan Katz throws an ill-advised pass which is intercepted and brought back to the house. 14-9, Arizona State with the lead.

    The Beavers would then settle back down and hook up on some big pass plays on a drive culminating in a 4 yard TD run by HB Ryan McCants to go up 15-14. The Beavers would go for 2 and convert on a quick in by the TE. Oregon State 17, Arizona State 14. A couple of failed possessions by both squads and Oregon State would get the ball back with 4:21 to go and looking to run out the clock. They'd drive down the field with a solid running game and face a 3rd and 6 on the ASU 26. A first down would seal it. If they got stopped, a FG attempt would be in order. At this point, WR James Rodgers still hadn't touched the ball. Coach Parrothead takes a chance on giving it to him on a sweep, and he comes up huge! Rodgers sprints around the corner and breaks a tackle on the way to a TD with 1:20 left in the game. ASU is out of timeouts at this point, and the hurry up offense gains some yards, but is stopped on 4th down. Final score is Oregon State 24, Arizona State 14.

    Hoping to put up some highlights later.

    Oregon state could have fell by the waist side with the quick 14-0 run but I was impressed with how they recovered from that to win.
