- On the verge of today’s big contest against LSU, the Oregonian took a look at catcher/football team kicker Adley Rutschman’s recent defensive exploits and how the freshman has blossomed into a focal point of this Beavers team. This afternoon, Rutschman can help an Oregon State team that currently sits one win away from a birth in the College World Series Finals.

- Want to learn more about Oregon State’s opponent in LSU?

- Twin sisters Kerissa and Venessa D’Arpino are record holders and already legends in the world of Oregon State track and field. So on Wednesday, when the duo decided to transfer away from the program (and to rival Oregon of all places), it’s safe to say the coaches of the program were left a bit shell-shocked. Their decision is rumored to be associated with the recent retirement of track and field coach Kelly Sullivan, who left the program after 13 years.
- A 6’ 1”, 165-pound wide receiver out of Edna Karr High School in Louisiana, Anthony Spurlock currently holds offers from Jacksonville State, Nicholls State and Oregon State.

Calling them his “top school”, the Beavers may be the team to beat in securing the prospect’s services.
- Oregon State alumni Andrew Moore made a quick rise through the farm system of the Seattle Mariners, which culminated in him being called up to the show on Wednesday morning.
