- The Beavers' win over Stanford Saturday marked the 20th in Jonathan Smith's career as head coach.

Last Meeting
- Washington State scored 14 fourth-quarter points including a touchdown with 5:25 remaining for the 31-24 victory.

- Ron Hardge III made eight tackles while Omar Speights tallied five with a tackle for loss and an interception.

Re-winding Win No. 4
- The one-point win marked Oregon State's first since a 35-34 win over Arizona State in 2019 at Reser Stadium. It was the Beavers' first one-point win away from home since defeating Missouri, 39-38, in the 2006 Sun Bowl.
- The Beavers last won a one-point game on an opponents' field on Oct. 19, 1985 at Washington, a 21-20 decision.
- The victory was Oregon State's first at Stanford since 2006, snapping a six-game losing streak there.
- OSU's first scoring drive of the game came on a 99-yard drive, the Beavers' first since 2019 at Washington State. The drive lasted 15 plays, the team's longest of the season. It was also the longest by time, surpassing a 13-play drive that lasted 6:52 at Fresno State.
- Stanford managed just 90 yards rushing, the fewest allowed by a Beaver defense since Washington State totaled 92 in 2021, a stretch of 12 games.
- Jack Colletto scored his 20th career rushing touchdown. He is now two shy of tying Terron Ward (2011-14) for the 10th-most in a career at Oregon State.
- Damien Martinez scored his second touchdown of the season on his longest carry of the year, a 43-yarder, in the fourth quarter.
- Ben Gulbranson made his first career start and threw for two touchdowns - the second and third of his career - while totaling 250 passing yards. Chance Nolan had started the previous 17 games for the Beavers at QB.
- Oregon State won its fifth game all-time under Jonathan Smith when trailing at halftime. It was also the Beavers' sixth win under Smith when trailing entering the fourth quarter.
- Stanford did not start a drive in OSU territory. The Beavers also kept Montana State from starting in OSU territory in week three.

Back Stretch
- Oregon State became the first team in the Pac-12 to play four games away from its home stadium when traveling to Stanford. That means the Beavers will play four of their last six games at home, which starts with back-to-back games against Washington State and Colorado.
- Utah, Oregon and Colorado are the only other Pac-12 teams to play more than two games away from home at this point in the season.
- The Beavers have won three games away from Reser for the first time since 2019 when defeating UCLA, California and Arizona on the road.
- Oregon State last played four of its last six regular-season games at home during the 2014 season.

Tre'Shaun Harrison Over 100
- Tre'Shaun Harrison surpassed 100 yards receiving for the second time this season in the win over Stanford. His 56-yard game-winning touchdown reception put him over the century mark to 104. Sixty-seven of the 104 yards came after the catch.
- Harrison's numbers in 2022, both of which are career highs: 31 receptions for 441 yards. His 31 receptions are tied for fifth in the Pac-12, while his receiving yards rank sixth.
- His 2021 numbers: 29 catches for 401 yards and three touchdowns.
- Harrison has 23 receptions for 355 yards over his last four games. That's an average of 15.4 yards per catch.
- The Seattle native has 106 receptions for 1,339 yards at the FBS level, with 69 receptions for 984 yards coming in 21 games as a Beaver. He played in 24 games for Florida State before coming to Corvallis.
- Harrison is aiming to become the 34th player in an Oregon State uniform with 1,000 or more receiving yards as a Beaver. The last to do was Isaiah Hodgins, who finished his OSU career in 2019.

Speights To 254
- Omar Speights has totaled 20 tackles over the past three games, which includes a season-best eight against USC on Sept. 24.
- Speights now has 259 career tackles in 38 games.
- His 259 tackles are 23 shy of tying Jonathan Jackson (282 from 1996-99) for 10th-most in a career at Oregon State.
- To tie Jackson, Speights would need to average just under four tackles per regular-season game. He has totaled five or more tackles in 28 of his 38 career games played.

- The Oregon State defense has already forced 19 three-and-out drives by opponents this season, including four versus the Cardinal.
- The 2021 Beavers, meanwhile, forced just 25 three-and-out drives in their 13 games.
