Beaver Defense Listed as Missing

In Corvallis… things were rough for the #25 Oregon State Beavers who were stunned by Eastern Washington, 49-46, in their opener.  Eagles Quarterback Vernon Adams overwhelmed the Beaver defense with four passing touchdowns and two rushing.  He completed 23 of 30 passes despite having to leave the game twice… once with cramps, and a second time after taking a hard hit.

Volcanoes Erupt

The Eugene Emeralds had a tough night in Keizer last night… losing to the Volcanoes 15-1.  The final game of the season is tonight at Volcano Stadium.
