- The Beavers are bowl eligible for the second consecutive season after defeating Colorado, 42-9, on Oct. 22. 
- Oregon State and Washington are both coming off their respective bye weeks. The Beavers and Huskies were the last two teams in the Pac-12 Conference to take their byes.

Last Meeting
- Everett Hayes connected on a 20-yard field goal as time expired to send Oregon State to a 27-24 win over the Huskies last season at Reser Stadium.
- The Beavers saw B.J. Baylor rush for 111 yards and two touchdowns.

Top 25
- Oregon State is ranked 24th by the Associated Press in its weekly top 25, earning 129 points. That's seven shy of No. 23 Liberty.
- The Beavers were last ranked for two weeks during the 2013 season, both at No. 25. OSU was No. 25 on Oct. 26, 2013, dropping a 20-12 decision to then-No. 8 Stanford.

- Oregon State is playing its first game on a Friday since hosting Oregon on Nov. 27, 2020, a 41-38 win.
- The Beavers also hosted Washington on a Friday in 2019, dropping a 19-7 contest to the Huskies.
- Oregon State played four Friday matchups from 2018-20, including two during the 2019 season.
- Including Thursdays, the Beavers have played at least one non-Saturday regular season game every year except 2021 dating back to 2014.

Bowl Eligible Win No. 6
- Oregon State's win over Colorado made the Beavers bowl eligible in October for the fourth time in program history. The Beavers' earliest bowl eligibility dates came in 2012 (Oct. 20) and 2013 (Oct. 19).
- The Beavers have won three consecutive Pac-12 games for the first time under head coach Jonathan Smith.
- The 33-point win over Colorado marked the Beavers' largest margin of victory since a 62-14 win over California in 2012.
- It's the first time since 2008 that OSU has held three consecutive conference foes under 100 yards rushing. That occurred in 2008 versus Arizona State, UCLA and California.
- Jack Velling caught a 60-yard touchdown in the win. It's the longest reception by a Beaver tight end since Marty Maurer in 1999 versus Nevada.
- OSU held Colorado to 290 yards of offense, the fourth time a Pac-12 foe has been limited to under 300 under Smith. The Beavers have won all four games when that happens.
- Colorado's nine points scored were the fewest by a Pac-12 foe since 2012 when the Beavers held Utah to seven.
- Damien Martinez's 178 rushing yards marked the most in a conference game for the Beavers since Jermar Jefferson's 196 versus Cal in 2020.

After Byes
- Oregon State is 2-1 under head coach Jonathan Smith following a bye week. The Beavers defeated Utah, 42-34, following a bye in 2021, and beat Arizona, 56-38, in 2019. OSU lost to Cal following a bye in 2018.
- OSU did not have a bye week in 2020 due to Covid-19.

Run D
- Oregon State has limited Stanford, Washington State and Colorado to a combined 197 rushing yards over the last three games. The Cardinal, Cougars and Buffaloes have run the ball 75 times over that stretch, and are averaging 2.6 yards per carry.
- The OSU rush defense has allowed 120.3 yards per game this season, good for third in the Pac-12. That's down 23 yards per game from last season, which was OSU's best against the rush since 2014 (158.3).

INTs Vs. TDs
- Oregon State's defense has intercepted 10 passes this season while holding opponents to eight passing touchdowns.
- Oregon State and USC are the only Pac-12 programs to pick off more passes than TD passes allowed. Nationally, there are 18 teams that can boast that fact.

Martinez In Three
- Damien Martinez has rushed for 372 yards over his past three games, scoring four of his five touchdowns on the season over that stretch.
- The freshman has carried the ball 41 times in that span, averaging better than 9 yards per carry.
- The Lewisville, Texas native was named the Pac-12's Freshman of the Week following the 42-9 win over Colorado. He ran for 178 yards and three touchdowns.

Defensive Honors
- Alex Austin, who returned an interception for a touchdown in the win over Colorado, was named the Pac-12's Defensive Player of the Week on Oct. 24.
- Austin is the third Oregon State defensive player to be recognized this season, joining Jaydon Grant after the win over Boise State and Kitan Oladapo after the victory at Fresno State.
- It's the first time in OSU's history three different Beavers have been named Defensive Player of the Week in the same season.
