(#24) OREGON STATE (1-1) at (#3) BOISE STATE (2-0) Saturday, 8 ET on ABC
Oregon State has been a giant killer of late. The Beavers have won each of their last 3 games against AP top-3 teams, beating USC in 2008, California in 2007 and USC in 2006. Boise State’s 63-2 home record since the start of the 2000 season is best in FBS. This past week, Oregon State spent $11,000 and painted its practice field blue to match the color of the turf at Bronco Stadium. What did the men in blue think of the Beavers practice field paint job? "Perfect. We've got them right where we want them if they're painting their field," said Boise State head coach Chris Petersen. To get the Broncos ready for such a huge game, Coach Holtz decided to give the men in blue a "pep-talk".
