Oregon State Beavers running back Damien Martinez (6) celebrates a touchdown with tight end Jake Overman (81) against the Arizona State Sun Devils during the first half at Sun Devil Stadium on Nov. 19, 2022, in Tempe, Arizona.

Oregon State has an opportunity on Saturday to end its standout season with a statement win. 

The No. 17 Beavers face Florida at 11:30 a.m. in the Las Vegas Bowl with a chance to finish a 10-win season with a victory over an SEC team. 

Granted, Florida is not the power it used to be — the Gators are 6-6 overall and went 3-5 in the SEC — but an Oregon State victory would be symbolically significant. 

Florida has won three national championships in the past 27 years — 1996, 2006 and 2008. 

The game will be played at the Las Vegas Raiders’ home, Allegiant Stadium. 

“We’re excited about a big-time stadium, big-time opponent, and a location our fans can get to,” Oregon State coach Jonathan Smith said. “There’s a lot to play for. I feel really good about the momentum of the program.”
