Beaver Football Named Family Friendliest Again

Jan. 22, 2009

Corvallis, Ore. -

Corvallis - For the second consecutive year, the independent website CollegeFootballLive has ranked the Oregon State University football program as having the best family atmosphere in all of the Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I).

Website editor Christian Birch and his colleagues created a formula in identifying key elements for college programs around the nation.  They summarized a family atmosphere begins with the head coach and his staff - 'their guidance, integrity and personality set the stage for their athletes and employees.'

The Beavers and USC, incidentally the two winningest programs in the Pac-10 over the last three seasons, are the only two league members in the top 10 of the study.
