The Oregon State Beavers are happy to be home in this one, as they’re reeling from a road beatdown at the Big House against Michigan. San Jose State remains on the road following a lopsided loss at Air Force last week.
Oregon State remains a 7.5-point favorite in this one as of Thursday morning.
San Jose State
San Jose State began this season with a solid 30-point win against New Hampshire, 43-13. They couldn’t keep the momentum going, however, as they fell 37-16 on the road against Air Force in Week 2.
One player to watch in this contest is LB Chrisitan Tago. He’s collected an impressive 21 tackles on the season — remember we’re just two weeks into the year.
On offense, RB Tyler Irvin has collected 248 yards on the ground and four TDs. WR Tyler Winston has 104 receiving yards, 10 catches and a touchdown.
San Jose State has used two quarterbacks in their system thus far, so look for a split behind center once again in this one.
The Oregon State Beavers opened up their contest against Michigan last week with confidence.
They were double-digit underdogs, but they found a way to strike an early 7-3 lead by the end of the first quarter, and remained within 10 going into the half.
Unfortunately for the Beavers, that’s where things went south. The squad from Corvallis, Ore. was unable to put another point on the board, and they ended up falling 35-7.
Against San Jose State, the Beavers will look to get more consistent tackling on defense and more consistent forward motion on offense.
A fun subplot here is that freshman quarterback Seth Collins originally had committed to the Spartans before changing his mind and going with the Beavers up north.
Both teams will have motivation with this in mind.

Look for the Beavers to bounce back in this one. Collins will have motivation to show he made the right decision with his de-commitment, and the team as a whole should follow suit.
