Friday night, the Oregon State Beavers are going to look to rebound from a heartbreaking loss to Stanford last weekend when they welcome in the USC Trojans to Reser Stadium in Corvallis.
The Beavers, after suffering a disappointing loss to begin the season against Eastern Washington were on a roll, right up until the Cardinal were able to stop that momentum slightly.
Against the Trojans, the talented group consisting of QB Sean Mannion and WR Brandin Cooks will be out to make a statement that they’re not going anywhere in the conference.
And, they’ll do so looking a little different than usual.
For the home contest tonight, the Beavers are putting aside the usual black uniforms in favor of something a little more colorful–all orange.
I’m sure that many will make the Halloween distinction between the orange and black combo, but hey, they’re only a day late and it’s not their fault they didn’t draw the Thursday night game this week.
Oregon State is still alive in the Pac-12 North, although it’ll be difficult to accomplish that. They’ll need some pieces to fall in place in front of them, and they also have to take care of business at the end of the season against in-state rival Oregon.
