There shouldn’t be much to say about this one but unfortunately for Oregon State fans the Beavers are a program with a lot of uncertainty surrounding them in 2016.
Opening their season at Minnesota the Beavers threw away opportunity after opportunity and ended up walking away with a 23-30 loss.
Idaho State, meanwhile, was walloped by a surprisingly talented Colorado Buffaloes team to the tune of a 56-7 loss.
The Beavers should be the superior team in this one by far, but there is still a lot of doubt surrounding the program, even with Gary Anderson at the helm.
Plus, FCS opponents have quite the knack for giving the Beavers problems at home (we’re looking at you, Eastern Washington).
Idaho State Bengals
There isn’t much to say about the Bengals in this one.
They looked potent against Simon Fraser but, then again, that was Simon Fraser. Against Colorado they were a completely different story and team, getting trounced on the road.
It’s tough to say but the Bengals don’t really have a shot in this one and OSU will use it more as a tuneup game before Pac-12 play.
Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State gave the game to Minnesota in week one, and their players know it. They had plenty of chances to put the game away yet allowed the Golden Gophers to stay in the game and ultimately come away with the win.
While they could hang their heads and look back on this loss for weeks to come, don’t expect Gary Anderson to let them do so as they must regroup and iron some things out before Pac-12 play.
Darell Garretson should have a bit more confidence and room to work against Idaho State and will give Beaver fans reason to hope in 2016.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction
Don’t expect much in the way of entertainment from this game.
While the Beavers do have some issues to work out and must secure the ball better, they are also a Pac-12 program that should easily overpower Idaho State.
It could be interesting for a minute or two as Oregon State gets adjusted to game tempo after a bye week, but this one will get ugly quick. Beavers win this one in a rout.

This is the perfect opportunity for the Beavers to iron out some kinks before the meat of their schedule.
Especially with a bye week occurring so early on in the season, Oregon State will need to establish an identity in order to let people know that the 2016 Beavers will be a formidable foe.
Upcoming games against Boise State, an improved Colorado squad, California, and Utah are daunting to look at but don’t expect Oregon State to overlook the Bengals — at least for the first half.
