Oregon State Notables
- Oregon State heads into Saturday's matchup with Oregon tied for second in the Pac-12 North with Washington State, both with 5-3 records. Oregon is 6-2.
- A Washington win over Washington State Friday night and an OSU win over Oregon Saturday would give the Beavers the tiebreaker in the Pac-12 North.
- The Beavers finished the 2021 home season with a 6-0 record for just the second time in school history, joining OSU's 2000 team.
- Chance Nolan, taking his first snap as a Beaver, ran for a 1-yard touchdown with 33 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter for a 41-38 victory last season.
- Jermar Jefferson ran for 226 yards and a touchdown while Kolby Taylor caught seven passes for 114 yards. Tristan Gebbia passed for 263 yards and a touchdown.
- Avery Roberts finished with 12 tackles. Andrzej Hughes-Murray, meanwhile, finished with 3.5 tackles for loss.
Baylor 17th To 1,000
- B.J. Baylor ran for 80 yards on 23 carries in the win over Stanford and in the process, surpassed the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career. He extended his season total to 1,200 yards with 150 against Arizona State.
- Baylor is the ninth player in Oregon State history to tally at least one 1,000-yard season, joining Steven Jackson, Ken Simonton, Jacquizz Rodgers, Jermar Jefferson, Yvenson Bernard, Bill Enyart, Pete Pifer and Dave Schilling.
- Those nine have combined for 17 1,000-yard seasons; Simonton, Bernard and Rodgers have three apiece.
- Baylor's 1,200 rushing yards ranks 12th in the OSU single-season record books, and needs 14 to tie Bernard for 11th. Bernard gained 1,214 yards in 2007.
The Defense Last Two
- The Oregon State defense has combined to limit Stanford and Arizona State to 496 yards of total offense over the last two games.
- The defense held Stanford to 230 yards and Arizona State to 266. Those are the two lowest total offensive outputs by Pac-12 teams against the Beavers during head coach Jonathan Smith's tenure at Oregon State.
- The OSU defense has also forced the Cardinal and Sun Devils to commit four turnovers over the two games, three via interception.
- Stanford and ASU have combined for just 106 plays the two games, totaling 50:19 of possession time.
Roberts Leading The Pac-12
- Oregon State linebacker Avery Roberts continues his Pac-12 leading season with 115 tackles, which is sixth in the nation. It also continues a career-best for the Delaware native, surpassing his 83 two seasons ago.
- Roberts now has 267 career tackles during his career at OSU. That's 15 tackles shy of tying Jonathan Jackson (1996-99) for 10th-most all-time at Oregon State.
- Roberts' 115 tackles this season, meanwhile, are five shy of tying Rico Petrini (1994) for 10th-most in a season by a Beaver.
- Roberts is the only Pac-12 player averaging better than nine tackles per game. He is one of just eight nationally averaging 10 or more per game.
