Rankings from AP Poll

The 2007 Oregon State Beavers football team represented Oregon State University in the 2007 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The team's head coach was Mike Riley. Home games were played at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Oregon.

Season notesEdit

The team returned 16 starting players from the previous season and was predicted by some analysts to contend for second place in the Pac-10.[1] They returned a majority of the defense, which was ranked second in the nation for total sacks, eighth in the nation in tackles for loss, and within the top 20 in rushing defense in the 2006–07 season. CFN picked the Beavers in their preseason top 25 and claimed they were a "heavy sleeper for big things" in the 2007 season.[2] The Beavers finished the season 9–4, good for third place in the Pac-10, and won the Emerald Bowl 21–14. Their run defense finished second in the nation for fewest rushing yards allowed per game only behind Boston College.

On a cold, rainy night in Pullman, Washington, the Beavers forced 8 turnovers en route to a 52-17 victory against the Cougars. Yvenson Bernard ran for 2 touchdowns and 77 yards as Lyle Moevao played mistake free in his second career start. Alex Brink threw 5 first half interceptions as the stingy Beaver defense put pressure on him all game long.

OregonEdit

Beavers own the State again. James Rodgers scores on a fly sweep in double OT. OSU's stingy D stuffs Jonathan Stewart on 4th down, to clinch the first victory on enemy soil for either team since 1996.
