Ryan Katz looks cool

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Questions about how sophomore quarterback Ryan Katz would handle his first career start for Oregon State have been answered.

Just fine.

Katz is 3-of-6 for 59 yards with a 30-yard touchdown after one quarter. He doesn't looked overwhelmed in the least. In fact, his fifth-year senior counterpart had a bad interception, which set up Oregon State's score.

The biggest issues at present for the Beavers? Stopping Andy Dalton as a runner (he leads all rushers with 26 yards) and is getting the ground game going. The Beaver rushed for just 3 yards in the first quarter.
