Beavs fall to 0-1 on the season

NCAA Football: Oregon State at Colorado State Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Well that sucked.

The first half featured back and forth action with the Beavs scoring the first TD of the season on a Jake Luton pass to Timmy Hernandez.

Colorado State answered quickly with a TD of their own to knot the score at 7 a piece. The Beavs would add a FG and a 75 yard touchdown run from Ryan Nall while Colorado State added a pair of touchdowns and a FG to lead 24-17 with a little over a minute left in the half. An Oregon State drive to close out the half appeared to end with a TD pass to Noah Togiai, but it was ruled incomplete on the field, and much to the surprise of everyone the incomplete call was ‘confirmed’ by replay. A Jordan Choukair field goal brought the Beavs within 4 as the half expired.

The second half was ugly for Beaver Nation as back to back Beaver drives ended with interceptions, the first of which ended in a defensive touchdown. Oregon State would add a Togiai touchdown in the 4th quarter, but it was not nearly enough as the Colorado State offense pounded away at the tired OSU defense en route to a 58-27 victory.

The Beaver offense ended the day with 304 passing yard, 152 rushing yards and 5 turnovers (3 interceptions and 2 fumbles). Colorado State passed for 334 while rushing for 191 yards and two turnovers (An interception and a muffed punt).

We will have a more in-depth reaction later on.
