We have finally reached week one of the college football season with a full plate of games. The best part of a new season is that every team feels like they can have a good season, and that this is the season where they can reach all their goals.
One of the games to take place in week one takes place at Reser Stadium, in Corvallis, Oregon. The Portland State Vikings make the trip to take on the Oregon State Beavers.
These two teams have faced off three times in recent history and the Beavers have come ahead in all of those.
Portland State Vikings
The Portland State Vikings come into this game with an 0-1 record after losing to the BYU Cougars by a final of 20-6.
Even though they did lose, there was a lot of positives to take away from that game. The fact that they held the Cougars to 20 points was a huge win. The Cougars are known for putting up a ton of points in a hurry, and the Vikings held their own.
On the offensive side of the ball it was a different story though. They had trouble getting the ball moving down the field, and they could only muster out six points.
Jalani Easton only put up 134 yards passing and a low completion percentage of just over 44 percent. He didn’t throw any interceptions though so that was a positive.
To win this game the Vikings need to play well on the offensive side of the ball. Now they don’t need to put up 40 points a game, but if they could put up 25-30, with the defense they have, they would be in really good shape.
Oregon State Beavers
On the other side of this match up is the Oregon State Beavers, who are also 0-1 coming into this game. In their first game of the season the defense really struggled and the Colorado State Rams took advantage.
They lost 58-27, and the schedule doesn’t get any easier after this week, so if they lose in this game they could easily start out the season 0-6 or even 0-7.
The biggest issue with the defense was they couldn’t slow down anything. They struggled stopping the run and the pass and it led to a lot of big play by the Rams.
To win this game the Beavers can’t let the Vikings get settled in on offense. The Vikings showed they aren’t great on that side of the ball so the Beavers can’t make them look like they are explosive.
