Our Selection : How the Beavers lost to the Eagles in their opener is puzzling. We’re not talking Philadelphia here. We’re talking the Eastern Washington Eagles!
Since that loss Oregon State has been super solid winning all 6 games with quality wins over Utah and Washington State. The Beavers defense has improved greatly over the last 4 games holding 3 of their opponents to 24 or fewer points including 17 to both California and Colorado.
The Oregon State offense has not been putting up numbers like the Baylor Bears’ 64.7 PPG or the state rival Ducks’ 57.6, but they’re in the top 10 in scoring offense with 44.1 points per game. QB Sean Mannion has been off the charts with 29 TD passes and only 3 INTs! He’ll face a Cardinal defense that has allowed only 247.1 passing yards per game, but has allowed more than 300 yards to Arizona State, Washington State and Washington. Stanford is allowing QBs to complete 62.2 percent of their passes that ranks near the bottom of the Pac-12.
Stanford has lost only one game this season and the recipe to beat the Cardinal appears to be a decent defense and a balanced offense. That’s where the Beavers may come up short. They have not run the ball well all season with a 2013 high of 120 yards against the lowly Buffaloes. We do believe that Stanford will be able to tee off on Mannion on obvious passing downs, but the Cardinal will not be able to blitz without having Mannion pick their secondary apart.
We think that this game will be close throughout and probably be decided with a late field goal
