Here’s how to watch Saturday night’s matchup between the Washington State Cougars and Oregon State Beavers online.
The Washington State Cougars will look to maintain their perfect record in Pac-12 play when they visit the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night at Reser Stadium.
For the second straight year, the Cougars have recovered from an opening week loss to an FCS school, and currently sit at 5-2. Following the defeat against Eastern Washington, the Cougars played Boise State tough on the road in a 31-28 loss before reeling off five straight wins, including four in a row to begin Pac-12 play.
Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense is firing on all cylinders to help the Cougars average over 40 points per game so far. Junior quarterback Luke Falk is having a terrific season with a 72.7 completion percentage, over 2,500 passing yards, and 19 touchdowns to five interceptions. Along with a strong group of wide receivers, the Cougars have added a running element with junior Jamal Morrow averaging over six yards per carry.

Second-year head coach Gary Andersen is slowly building Oregon State, even if its 2-5 record doesn’t reflect it. The Beavers picked up their first conference win of the Andersen era against California on October 8 before playing Utah tough the week after.
The Beavers are still searching for a spark on offense, as the quarterback situation is a mess currently. Sophomore Ryan Nall has been Oregon State’s most effective player with 64 carries for 464 yards and six touchdowns, but is uncertain to ply due to a foot injury. Without Nall, the Beavers will have to get explosive playmaker Victor Bolden more involved in the offense.
Washington State looks like the only team that can stop the in-state rival Washington Huskies from winning the Pac-12 North, although it likely can’t afford a loss before the Apple Cup. While this is a mismatch on paper, crazy things can happen on Pac-12 After Dark.
