The Beavers disappointing 49-7 homecoming loss to California last week left a bad taste in the mouths of the fanbase, players, administration, and especially head coach Jonathan Smith.
“It was rough out there,” the first-year OSU coach and former Beavs QB said after the game.
Now, Smith looks to bring his team a step forward visiting the Colorado Buffaloes Saturday at Folsom Field in Boulder.
Colorado (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) is coming off a pair of road losses, last week at No.15 Washington 27-13 and a 31-20 loss the week prior at USC. The Buffaloes were without dynamic receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. last week as he was dealing with a shoulder injury. The Biletnikoff Award watch list star is still uncertain if he can face the Beavers.
The OSU defense has struggled mightily this season and is allowing an average of 541 yards per game, and more rush yards (274) than passing yards (266) per game.
Kickoff is at Noon on Saturday on the Pac-12 Network. Can the Beavs buck the odds and pull off their first road win since 2014?
