Oregon State's in an unusual spot this week-- a bye week after an opening game. It's a much needed bye week for OSU, as last Saturday's TCU game exposed a lot of weaknesses in the team. But, those weaknesses may not have looked as weak against a different opponent. I believe that the Oregon State team that showed up in Cowboys Stadium could have beaten the majority of teams in the Pac-10.
But the Beavers now know what they have to work on. Ryan Katz has film to watch, as does the defense.
Where do you think the Beavers need to improve most? The run defense has to get better, but Ryan Katz is going to have to outperform defenses who are loading the box and bringing the house.
