Oregon State quarterback Ben Gulbranson (17) pitches the ball during the first quarter against Colorado at Reser Stadium in Corvallis on Oct. 22.

Fresh off a bye week, Oregon State has a big challenge coming up on the road. 

The Beavers will travel to Seattle this week to face Washington in a rare Friday night game, as they begin the stretch run of the season. 

“A team that knows how to win, a team that knows how to score,” Oregon State coach Jonathan Smith said about the Huskies. “A hostile environment, a great place to play a football game. Fan base into it, crowd noise.” 

At 6-2 overall and 3-2 in the Pac-12, the Beavers enter the game ranked for the first time since 2013 at No. 24. 

While the ranking is nice, Smith said, the team isn’t focused on polls right now. 

“Midseason rankings, we’re not into or pay a bunch of attention to, but I will say, though, that it’s a recognition of the work these guys have put in,” he said. “But we’re definitely into postseason rankings.”
