Reasons to be Optimistic about Saturday


I'm trying to convince myself that Oregon State has a good chance to beat USC on Saturday. Here is what I have so far:

1) Oregon State is damn good coming off of Bye Weeks.

2) The Beavs always seem to have that one game against a high ranked team where everything just "clicks" and they win. This also is usually the time where the team turns it on and stays hot until the end of the year. Examples I am thinking of are 2006 vs. USC; 2007 at Cal; 2008 vs. USC.

3) We still have Quizz and James, and they are both healthy off the bye week.

4) USC just came off a close win against one of their biggest rivals, then they get to play in what is being billed as the "Pac-10 Game of the Year" next week. The chances of a USC emotional letdown seem pretty good.

You guys have any other reasons to be optimistic?
