Oregon State Football has released their schedule for 2019. After a tough start to the Jonathan Smith Era, we’re all looking forward to seeing how the team develops. Here’s who they’ll be taking on next year.
- August 30th: vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys
- September 7th: at Hawaii Warriors
- September 14th: vs. Cal Poly Mustangs
- September 28th: vs. Stanford Cardinal
- October 5th: at UCLA Bruins
- October 12th: vs. Utah Utes
- October 19th: at California Golden Bears
- November 2nd: at Arizona Wildcats
- November 8th: vs. Washington Huskies
- November 16th: vs. Arizona State Sun D
- November 23rd: at Washington State
- November 30th: at Oregon
The season kicks off on a Friday, August 30th in Corvallis, where the Beavers will welcome the Oklahoma State Cowboys to town. This will be the first time the Beavers take on the Cowboys.
The first road game of the season will take the Beavers into the Pacific to take on Hawaii. Then the Beavers will finish up their non-conference schedule with a home game against FCS team Cal Poly.
The conference schedule is of course the main event. This year the Beavers will play everyone in the Pac-12 except USC and Colorado. This is unfortunate because I’m sure a lot of Beaver fans wanted another shot at the Buffaloes.
Some interesting games to keep an eye on are the 11/2 road trip to Arizona, who will be losing their star QB this offseason, and were in the running for the most disappointing team in the Pac this past season. Considering how disappointing the Pac was, that’s quite an achievement. The Beavers will also get their first shot at Chip Kelly in his new job when they travel to UCLA on October 5th.
Of course, things will finish up with the Civil War against Oregon. This year that’s in Eugene, on November 30th. The Ducks weren’t very impressive this year, but still destroyed the Beavers. With another year of experience, and another crop of recruits, hopefully Coach Smith will have this team in a position where they can compete with the Ducks.
So what do you think? How many wins do you see on that schedule? Sound off in the comments.
