Homecoming Saturday Begins With Parade

Saturday's Homecoming festivities included the Beavers' 26-19 thriller over the Bruins, but that was the just last act of a seven hour event, that began with the Homecoming Parade, featuring Grand Marshall Les Gutches, who was a wrestling All-American for Oregon St. in 1994, 1995, and 1996, the latter two years as a national champion.
