  10/24/21 - B.J. BaylorrJr/2023, Oregon State, 5-11, 205 (DS#17 RB) + More +

  Oregon State took a pretty good shot from Utah in the first eight minutes but the Beavers never wavered and responded with an all-around performance that put them a win away from a bowl berth. Luke Musgrave blocked and returned a punt for a touchdown, B.J. Baylor rushed for over 100 yards and a score, and Oregon State rallied from an early deficit to defeat Utah 42-34 on Saturday night. The Beavers (5-2, 3-1 Pac-12), who trailed 24-14 at the half, scored touchdowns on their first three possessions of the second half to take control.

One more win and the Beavers will be bowl eligible for the first time since the 2013 season. "What's in front of us is bigger than going to a bowl game," fourth-year coach Jonathan Smith said. "And so the mantra is you try to win a game to make the next game bigger and that's what we did." Oregon State, the conference leader in rushing yards per game, rushed for 260 yards with Baylor, who entered averaging 112.8 yards per game, leading the way with 152. Quarterback Chance Nolan was 14-for-19 passing for 208 yards and two touchdowns with Trevon Bradford catching six passes for 74 yards and a score. Bradford also had two carries for 20 yards and a touchdown. Utah entered the game allowing just 128.3 on the ground. - Oregon State/AP College Football

  B.J. Baylor had 20 carries for 110 yards and two touchdowns, Everett Hayes kicked a 24-yard field goal as time expired and Oregon State beat Washington 27-24 on Saturday night. It's still relatively early in the season, but Oregon State's win combined with Stanford's upset of No. 3 Oregon in overtime puts the Beavers (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) in first place. Oregon State snapped a nine-game losing streak to Washington (2-3, 1-1 Pac-12) and is 2-0 in conference play for the first time since 2013. Oregon State rallied for its fourth consecutive win after losing the lead in the fourth quarter.

A strip-sack of Oregon State quarterback Chance Nolan by Faatui Tuitele at the OSU 13 and fellow defensive lineman Sam Taimani's recovery and 13-yard run set up Sean McGrew's 6-yard touchdown run, giving Washington the lead at 24-17 with 10:02 left. Back came the Beavers. A 19-yard run on a reverse to wide receiver Anthony Gould, followed by Gould's 22-yard reception set up Baylor's 27-yard run to tie the game at 24-24 with 6:35 remaining. McGrew was stopped inches short of a first down on a fourth-and-1 direct snap run near midfield at the 3:18 mark. The spot was upheld on an official's review. McGrew's 39-yard touchdown run up the middle tied the game at 17-17 with 10:19 remaining. Dylan Morris' 18-yard pass to Kamari Pleasant on third and 18 deep in Huskies territory kept the drive alive. Oregon State gained momentum early in the second quarter. - Oregon State/AP College Football

  Chance Nolan threw four touchdown passes and Oregon State beat Southern California 45-27 on Saturday night. Tyjon Lindsey had five receptions for 102 yards and two touchdowns, B.J. Baylor ran for 158 yards and the Beavers (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) ended a 24-game losing streak - dating to 1960 - at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It was their fourth win in 49 road games (4-42-3) in the series. "I just love the feeling of getting a big team win. It doesn't matter what I did, it matters what we all did, and I was just a small part of it," Lindsey said. "The praise goes to the team. It's a team effort, and I love the way we handled business here. It looked like a complete team to me." Kedon Slovis threw for 355 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions as the Trojans (2-2, 1-2) lost their second straight home game as double-digit favorites.

It was the first home game for interim coach Donte Williams, who replaced Clay Helton two days after a 42-28 loss to Stanford on Sept. 11. "Well, tonight just wasn't our night," Williams said. "Oregon State, tonight they outcoached us, they outplayed us, and it will all get fixed. I promise you that." Oregon State used a dominant run game and Nolan's precise passing to methodically wear down USC, scoring touchdowns on five straight drives starting in the second quarter. That included consecutive 92-yard marches, the latter capped by Tre'Shaun Harrison's 36-yard scoring grab with 44 seconds left in the first half that put the Beavers up for good. Nolan was 15-of-19 passing for 213 yards, though he did throw his first two interceptions of the season, and added 57 yards rushing. - Oregon State/AP College Football

  09/18/21 - Chance NolanrSo/2024, Oregon State, 6-2, 203 (DS#31 QB) + More +

  Oregon State took care of business Saturday against FCS opponent Idaho, dominating from the outset in a 42-0 victory. Chance Nolan passed for three touchdowns and B.J. Baylor ran for two scores as the Beavers (2-1) amassed 438 total yards and were stout defensively. Oregon State led 28-0 at halftime and was not challenged by the Vandals (1-2), who have lost 17 of the past 18 matchups against the Beavers dating back to 1953. It was Oregon State's first shutout since a 3-0 victory over Pittsburgh in the 2008 Sun Bowl.

Idaho was limited to 192 total yards and didn't get inside the Beavers' 20-yard line until late in the third quarter after an interception of OSU backup quarterback Sam Noyer. Wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey, who missed last week's game against Hawaii with an ankle injury, got the Beavers on the board midway through the first quarter with an 18-yard touchdown catch. Baylor's 4-yard TD run increased the lead to 14-0 late in the first quarter. Deshaun Fenwick's 9-yard scamper gave the Beavers a 21-0 advantage at 11:05 of the second quarter. Nolan's 2-yard touchdown pass to tight end Teagan Quitoriano late in the first half gave Oregon State a 28-0 lead at the break. It was more of the same in the second half. - Oregon State/AP College Football

  Chance Nolan passed for 302 yards and two touchdowns, and B.J. Baylor ran for a career-high 171 yards and three scores to lead Oregon State to a 45-27 victory over Hawaii on Saturday night. Nolan replaced starter Sam Noyer late in the third quarter of the Beavers' season-opening loss at Purdue last week and provided a spark. Coach Jonathan Smith opted to stay with the hot hand against Hawaii (1-2, 0-0 Mountain West). Good decision.

Nolan completed his first 13 passes as the Beavers (1-1) took a 24-7 halftime lead at the break. He finished 21 of 29 and also ran for 38 yards. "I did think he was sharp," Smith said. "We're going with stuff he's really comfortable with and it showed up. He came out really effective." Nolan, who started the last three games last season after an injury to Tristan Gebbia, learned Thursday that he would be in the starting lineup. If Saturday's performance was indicative, he could become a fixture as OSU's starting signal caller. "In our position you've got to prepare like you're gonna go in no matter what," Nolan said. "You never know what's gonna happen." - Oregon State/AP College Football

  08/31/21 - Sam NoyerrSr/2022, Oregon State, 6-3, 227 (DS#31 QB) + More +

  Oregon State will go with sixth-year senior Sam Noyer as its starting quarterback for Saturday's 2021 season opener at Purdue. Noyer, who transferred from Colorado in June, beat out fourth-year sophomore Chance Nolan for the starting berth. Tristan Gebbia, among those battling for the starting berth during the first two weeks of camp, is sidelined with a sore hamstring. Coach Jonathan Smith said the quarterbacks were told of the decision Sunday. "Throughout camp, I thought the whole quarterback room did a good job going back and forth. It was very close," Smith said. "Ultimately getting ready for a game week, felt like the best way to do it was make a decision on Monday so we can have a week of work with the game plan." The 6-foot-4, 227-pound Noyer played five years and 26 games at Colorado. Noyer earned second-team all-conference honors in 2020 after leading the Buffaloes to a 4-2 record. Noyer is a graduate of Beaverton High. "The overall feel throughout the body of work through camp and then headed into a game plan, we just felt like he has the best chance to let us score some points," Smith said of Noyer. - The Oregonian

  It appears a decision on who will start at quarterback for Oregon State in the season opener at Purdue two Saturdays from now could be put off until game week. One of the primary candidates for the spot, Tristan Gebbia, who started the first four games for the Beavers last season, has been sidelined at practice since last week with a sore hamstring. How long he'll be out is still uncertain.

That's left coach Jonathan Smith and his staff carefully weighing their options. "We talked about Tristan, giving him a couple days to try to get that thing feeling better and he's still yet to do in regards to feeling like he can go full speed," Smith said Tuesday as he met with the media after practice, the team's 16th of fall camp. "He's getting a little light work, but we're really taking that day to day. He's not ready for prime time, so we've got to work with those other guys." Those others are graduate transfer Sam Noyer, Chance Nolan, a second-year player in the program who played in relief of Gebbia in 2020, and true freshman Sam Vidlak. - Gazette Times

  08/20/21 - Luke MusgraverSo/2024, Oregon State, 6-5, 252 (DS#18 TE) + More +

  On the list of wow players during the first five days of Oregon State's preseason football camp, there's no disagreement that tight end Luke Musgrave is an automatic inclusion. The third-year tight end from Bend has been a showstopper in the passing game, and emerging as a blocker. At 6-foot-6, up to 252 pounds with good speed, Musgrave is impossible to miss when the Beavers scrimmage each day. While it might be premature to project Musgrave as the seventh career 1,000-yard tight end at Oregon State, he clearly has that capability. "He's got himself in great shape. He's running really well, and he's carrying good weight," OSU offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren said. "The biggest thing for him is, he's always been really good in the passing game. It's the 50-50 balls with a big body that we're looking to see more of. He's done some of that. "He's going to be a big part of what we do."

Musgrave has been a camp standout with not only contested passes, but making a tough catch. There was a situation Monday when Musgrave went up high to grab a long pass over the middle, knowing he was going to get blasted. He made a fingertip catch, securing the ball as he hit the ground hard. "That one hurt. I still feel that one," Musgrave said. "You just have to accept that it's not going to feel great on the way down, but you'll get the catch, most of the time." - The Oregonian

  08/17/21 - Isaac HodginsrJr/2023, Oregon State, 6-0, 274 (DS#999 DE) + More +

  Oregon State junior defensive end Isaac Hodgins, the team's most veteran player in terms of career starts, had foot surgery Monday and will be sidelined for about two months. Hodgins hurt his foot midway through Saturday's practice. He left the workout on crutches, and didn't attend Monday or Tuesday's practice. Coach Jonathan Smith, who didn't specify which foot, said Hodgins' injury is "longer-term, so give or take eight weeks." Hodgins, brother of Buffalo Bills receiver Isaiah Hodgins and son of former NFL fullback James Hodgins, has started 30 of 31 games at Oregon State. Hodgins started his first game as a true freshman in 2018. He brought a streak of 28 consecutive starts into the 2021 season. The 6-foot, 274-pound Hodgins has 76 tackles, 9 1/2 tackles for loss and five sacks during his career. Hodgins was Pac-12 all-conference honorable mention last season. - The Oregonian

  Eight months after hamstring surgery, there was reason to wonder how loose and mobile Tristan Gebbia might be during Oregon State's preseason football camp. The fifth-year junior showed his mobility Friday, smoothly running through scramble and roll-out drills during the Beavers' opening practice. There's no one looser in camp. While the media was interviewing linebacker Jack Colletto on Saturday, Gebbia stood within eyesight trying to distract his teammate with a variety of unartful dance moves. "Tristan, could you stop?" Colletto said to his playful teammate. Gebbia has worked his way back from the gruesome hamstring injury, sustained during the final minutes of a 41-38 win over Oregon on Nov. 27, to arguably the quarterback to beat for Oregon State's starting job. It's been a painstaking process for Gebbia, who said it wasn't until mid-July that he was able to throw and run normally during workouts.

"I don't feel like I missed a step out here. It might as well be Nov. 30 and I didn't get injured, in my book," Gebbia said. The proof comes this week, as the Beavers put on pads for practice and competition intensifies. But at a minimum, Gebbia - who started OSU's first four games last season - is in the hunt to start the season opener Sept. 4 at Purdue. Offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren believes Gebbia is close to his old form, saying "you can tell he's put in the work as far as the rehab goes. I anticipate by (Purdue) that he'll be ready to go." - The Oregonian

  Andrzej Hughes-Murray calls his decision to return to Oregon State for a sixth football season a "no-brainer." With a degree in psychology already in hand, he says there's more to be accomplished on the field, both individually and as a team, as he takes advantage of an extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the pandemic. "I thought that I had a lot to build off last year," Hughes-Murray said. "I just wanted to come back and have another run with this team because I think we can do some great things." Oregon State made some positive strides in 2020 despite a 2-5 record, he says, but there's room for improvement.

A 6-foot-2, 246-pound outside linebacker from Federal Way, Washington, Hughes-Murray bounced back from a 2019 season lost to a serious foot injury in fall camp to make an impact for the Beavers last year. He recorded 23 tackles and a sack while starting five of the seven games. Of his four tackles for loss on the season, 3.5 were recorded in the home win against Oregon. Fourteen of his 23 tackles came in two games, versus the Ducks and California. "I'm really rooting for that guy. He's been through a lot, done some great things for us," OSU coach Jonathan Smith said. "You talk about the leader that he is on this team, the work ethic, the passion he has for the game. We're expecting to see big things, not just from his play individually, but his leadership on this group." - Gazette Times

  Oregon State wide receiver Zeriah Beason is one of 53 players on the watch list for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award. Beason, from Duncanville, Texas, played in all seven games for the Beavers in 2020, making five starts. He caught 16 passes for 148 yards and three touchdowns. He caught his first career touchdown pass in the win over Oregon, then ended his season with scores in back-to-back games versus Stanford and Arizona State. - Gazette Times
