In their sixth season under head coach Lon Stiner, the Beavers compiled a 5–3–1 record (4–3–1 against PCC opponents), finished in a tie for third place in the PCC, and outscored their opponents, 72 to 51.[1] The team played its home games at Bell Field in Corvallis, Oregon.

HistoryEdit

Coming into the 1938 season, Oregon State College head football coach Lon Stiner was forced with the task of replacing virtually his entire starting backfield, having lost three of the previous year's regulars to graduation.[2] Twenty newcomers were added to the varsity squad for the 1938 campaign, who were brought up to speed over the course of 30 spring practices.[2]
