Oregon State Notables
- Oregon State is 5-2 for the second consecutive season. The Beavers are one win shy of becoming bowl eligible for the second consecutive year.
- Damien Martinez ran for 111 yards against Washington State, becoming the first OSU true freshman over the century mark since Jermar Jefferson in 2018 versus Washington.
- The Oregon State defense has held opponents to less than 400 yards in six of seven games. The Beavers rank third in the Pac-12 allowing 359.6 yards per game.
- The defense recorded six sacks in the win over Washington State, OSU's most since nine versus California in 2019.

Last Meeting
- Everett Hayes connected on a school-record 60-yard field goal, B.J. Baylor ran for 98 yards and Avery Roberts grabbed 13 tackles but the Beavers lost a 37-34 decision in two overtimes at Colorado last season.
- Baylor scored on a 1-yard rush in overtime but Colorado's Cole Becker kicked what would turn out to be a game-winning 43-yard field goal.

Looking At Win No. 5
- Oregon State snapped an eight-game losing streak to Washington State with the 24-10 win over the Cougars Saturday. It was also OSU's first in Corvallis since 2012.
- Oregon State improved to 5-1 in games this season starting at 5 p.m. or later. The Beavers came into the season 6-17 in such games under head coach Jonathan Smith.
- The Beavers held the Cougars to 23 rushing yards, the fewest under head coach Jonathan Smith. It beat the 35 rushing yards allowed to the Cougars in 2019 in Pullman.
- It marked the 13th time since 1996 that an OSU defense held an opponent to 23 or less rush yards.
- The Beavers recorded six sacks after coming into the game with five on the year. It's OSU most since picking up nine at Cal in 2019; Riley Sharp had three in that game.
- OSU's defense recorded an interception and 10 pass breakups in the win.
- Washington State's 10 points were the Cougars' fewest in a game since a 37-3 loss to California on Oct. 13, 2017.

To Bowl
- Oregon State needs one victory to become bowl eligible for the second consecutive season.
- The Beavers are 11-7 all-time in bowl games, and last appeared in back-to-back years in 2012 and 2013. OSU's record is four consecutive from 2006-09.

Martinez In Two
- Damien Martinez became the first OSU true frosh to surpass 100 yards rushing since Jermar Jefferson in 2018 against Washington.
- Martinez ran for 111 yards against Washington State Saturday, which included a 50-yard rush, the longest by a Beaver this season.
- Martinez has rushed for 194 yards over the last two games, doing so on just 19 carries. He's averaging 10.21 yards per rush in the wins over Stanford and Washington State.

Jack Colletto To 22
- Jack Colletto recorded his second multiple-score game of the season when he ran for two touchdowns against the Cougars. That gave Colletto 22 rushing touchdowns at Oregon State.
- That ties Colletto with Terron Ward (2011-14) for the 10th-most at Oregon State. He's one shy of No. 9 Sam Baker (1950-52), two behind No. 8 Ryan Nall (2015-17) and three away from No. 6 Bill Enyart (1966-68) and Storm Woods (2012-15).
- Colletto has 14 rushing touchdowns on 48 carries the last two seasons.

Top Three
- Oregon State's defensive backs boast three of the top six in the Pac-12 in passes defended this season.
- Ryan Cooper Jr. leads the league with nine passes defended, including three interceptions, which is second in the conference.
- Rejzohn Wright has eight passes defended to rank second, while Alex Austin is tied for third with seven.
- Jaydon Grant and Kitan Oladapo are each just outside the top five, tying for seventh.
- Those five combine for 34 passes defended this season, more than any other Pac-12 squad. Overall, Oregon State is credited with 43 as a team, 12 more than USC's 31.
- Nationally, that ranks fifth.

Tre'Shaun Harrison Looking For 1K
- Tre'Shaun 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.
- Harrison has 997 receiving yards at OSU.
- The Seattle native has 107 receptions for 1,352 yards at the FBS level, with 70 receptions coming in 22 games as a Beaver. He played in 24 games for Florida State before coming to Corvallis.

Speights To 262
- Omar Speights has totaled 23 tackles over the past four games, which includes a season-best eight against USC on Sept. 24.
- Speights now has 262 career tackles in 39 games.
- His 262 tackles are 20 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 four tackles per regular-season game. He has totaled five or more tackles in 28 of his 39 career games played.

- The Oregon State defense has already forced 22 three-and-out drives by opponents this season, including three versus the Cougars.
- The 2021 Beavers, meanwhile, forced just 25 three-and-out drives in their 13 games.

Speaking Of Defense
- The Oregon State defense ranks third in the Pac-12, allowing an average of 359.6 yards of offense per game. The Beavers have held six of their seven opponents to less than 400 yards this season. 
- From 2015-2021, the Oregon State defense had held opponents to 400 yards or less just 22 times, including 18 FBS foes.
