"That locker room and this facility (were) built with expectations, and they (the players) are responsible to go out there and represent Beaver Nation the right way," coach Gary Andersen said this week.
The Beavers have one more non-conference game, against Boise State, before embarking on the Pac-12 season. A confidence boost against the Broncos would be welcome for Oregon State, which went 0-9 in the conference last season.
The Beavers get a chance to build on the win next weekend against Boise State at Reser Stadium. The Beavers lead the all-time series against the Broncos 6-5. Boise State (2-0) had a bye this weekend after opening the season with a 45-10 over Louisiana-Lafayette and a 28-31 victory at home over Washington State.
