Beaver's Offense delivers at the end

(AP Photo/Greg Wahl-Stephens)

If you have any doubts that Sean Canfield has matured into a great QB, you are nuts. With 2 minutes left he directed a drive to win the game against UCLA. His game tight.

The Beavers won 26-19.

The Rodgers brothers are unreal. They are all about production and consistency. Mike Riley (and all us Beaver fans) are lucky to to have these kids.

If it wasn't for OSU's offense, our team would be 1-7. Maybe.

The defense is lacking "star" players, and by stars I don't mean Deion Sanders, I mean playmakers. Don't get me wrong the defense made some plays, but for the most part they were took to the cleaners. Giving up 4th quarter points is a deadly sin for any defense.

I think youth is the biggest problem on defense. Kristick is a knucklehead and he is a team captain.

Honorable mention kudo's-

Justin Kahut- he can kick the long balls easy, short ones are still an issue
Hekker is crushing it.
Kavanaugh is finally returning some punts.
The O-Line did not make any catastrophic mistakes.
Adenji is still making catches every week.
TE's produced 1 TD for the second week in a row.

The Beavers are predictable

Everyone expected the Beav's to lose, but they kept it interesting....

The Beav's played a great game Saturday night. They could have won, which is amazing in it's own right.

Canfield delivered a winnable performance.

The Defense clearly did not step up. Our whole d-team is suspect. Plays where made, plays where blown.

The referee's called a horrible game. I hate to blame ref's for the outcome of a game, because I think players make plays. Besides Kristick's calls, everything else was total BS. The Pac-10 must have the worst referee's in the nation. It sucks when the ref's materially impact a game. OSU is not the only team to suffer from the ref's incompetence.

From a Pac-10 perspective, it hurts our rep when the ref's suck this bad

21 point underdogs

Vegas has put the right spread on this game. Either the Beavers will keep it close or lose by 3 TD's minimum.

The Beav's haven't won in LA since 1960. A 30 year record went down against ASU this year, maybe the Beavers can pull off another beating the spread!!!

I hope the Beavers win, but the odds are definitely against them.

Beavers are shocking Stanford

The game started with a dud for Stanford after a WR dropped an easy TD on the first play of the game. From then on the Beavers have been whipping the Cardinal.

The score is 31-7. I am not kidding.

OSU is playing inspired football. On all fronts.

Stanford is not ASU

Stanford is going to bring their "A" game saturday. The Beav's are going to have to hope for rainy weather.

Actually the Beavers have a pretty good run defense, just no pass rush. Stanford has a very strong run game.

Who will win the line of scrimmage? Stanford's o-line or OSU's d-line? OSU's o-line or Stanford's d-line???

I am not going to compare DB's since our's have issues with pass defense.

Beavers are up 21-3 in the 2nd qtr

Don't get too excited, the Sun Devils are asleep. The Beavers have made plays and that is good. But there is plenty of time left and the D looks very vulnerable. There is no pass rush from OSU. I mean NO pass rush.
