The Lowdown: The Oregon State Beavers are back on track after a week one loss to Eastern Washington and quarterback Vernon Adams. While the road wins against Utah and San Diego State were close, the Beavers have three winnable games up next and, with a few breaks and some solid play, have a decent chance of starting the Pac-12 schedule at 4-0. The Beavers have struggled a bit on defense and the rushing attack has been horrendous, but Sean Mannion is leading one of the best passing attacks in the country. The Colorado secondary should expect a huge jump in competition in Corvallis on Saturday.
