Not a lot of news out of Oregon St.'s last full practice before kicking off the season Saturday against Eastern Washington (tomorrow will be just a walk-thru, and team position group meetings), but head Coach Mike Riley did name Victor Bolden as the team's top kick returner, contrary to what's on the depth chart released earlier this week. We did say it was subject to change.
It's also a testament to how Bolden just continues to impress on a daily basis.
"If we get the first play of the game as a kickoff return," Riley said, "he'll be back there."
The only other real news wasn't a surprise either, as Riley announced center Isaac Seumalo will be a game time decision, based on how he does in pregame warmups. Seumalo has spent the last 2 weeks recovering from a bruised left knee.
Finally, Beaver Walk will be 15 minutes earlier than historically, at 12:45 instead of 1 PM (for a 3 PM kickoff), giving a little more time for pre-game preparations. Since Brandin Cooks is asking for a full turnout for Beaver Walk, it's probably good to take note of the time change, and be there beside Truax on time!
