After starting out 6-0 and getting plenty of media hype, Mizzou (8-4) was revealed as the mid-level Big 12 squad it really is by owning the state of Kansas and no one else the rest of the season. Oregon State, on the other hand, had an up and down season, opening D-1A play with a raping on the Smurf Turf and then dropping their first two conference games before reeling off four straight, including the upset over then #3 USC. The Beavers have finished the season strong, riding a three game win streak over Stanford, the hated Ducks, and Hawaii. I like the Beavers to win this one.
Oregon State beat USC. Yep, that's pretty much good enough for me. Go Beavers! Plus, Missouri stole UAB's basketball coach, and I'm still mad at them for that. Make sure and visit our friends at Building the Dam.
Irrational Bama Fan:
Bama is 1-2 against Missouri and has never played Oregon State so just this once I'll ignore the fact that the PAC10=SUXXX!!@1. Go Beavers.
