The win was a team effort of course, but for the sake of argument, we ask you this: Who was the most valuable player for the Beavs in this victory? The way we see it, there are a few options.
Jake Luton: The senior quarterback entered in the second half and went 28 of 39 for 310 yards and three touchdowns. Luton’s gunslinging got Beaver offense going in the right direction and the senior battled through injuries to put his team in position to win.
Have to appreciate an injured Jake Luton out there giving it his all even while battling the high ankle injury. Trying to spark this #GoBeavs offense.— Amy Schwartz (@TheAmySchwartz) October 27, 2018
Isaiah Hodgins: 11 catches for 146 yards and two scores, including one of the best catches we’ve seen from an OSU receiver in a few years. In the second half, Hodgins couldn’t be contained with one-on-one coverage which helped spur the comeback along.

Jermar Jefferson: 30 carries for 135 yards with an average of 4.5 yards per carry. The freshman phenom continued his big year in this one taking his season total above 1,000 yards. Longtime Beavs fans already know, but that’s a big deal for this football program which had not had a 1,000-yard rusher in eight years.
Jermar Jefferson - first Oregon State running back to rush for a 1,000 yards in a season since Jacquizz Rodgers in 2010. LONG TIME for the Beavs. Jefferson has been really special this year. #GoBeavs— Brandon Sprague (@BrandonSprague) October 27, 2018
