Week 4 - Stunned Beavers over come coaching change to defeat Stanford. After leading the Beavers to a 2-1 record, the Oregon State nation was stunned when Coach Riley stepped down as the team prepared to face Stanford . Moving quickly the Oregon State administration reached a deal with uagrad90 to become the new head coach of the Beavers. Coach uagrad90 comes from Tuscaloosa where he was the wide receivers coach for Nick Saban. Moving quickly he hired the running back coach form Oklahoma State to be his Offense coordinator and linebacker coach from Alabama to lead the defense. The Beavers opened slowly against Stanford as everyone was still trying to learn the new schemes. The Beavers opened the score late in the 1st period when they caught the Cardinals in a blitz and hit them with a 34 yard screen pass to Rogers. After a 2nd quarter FG, Rogers increased the lead in the 3rd quarter with a 3 yard plunge off tackle. Following a fumble on the ensuing kickoff the Beavers wasted little time as Katz hit Prince with nice 9 yard fade pass to increase their lead. Any hopes of a Cardinal comeback died when Rogers returned a kickoff at the end of the 3rd quarter 97 yards to put the game away. Rogers ended the game with 60 yards rushing while Katz was 15 of 18 for 226 yards and 2 tds. Following the game coach uagrad90 said he was pleased with the win but his team need a alot of improving before they can compete for the Pac-12 Title and a BCS berth. One major area of concern was the missed extra points. Needless to say we will spend a little extra time working on that. Next up for the Beavers is a home game with new Pac-12 member Colorado.
