WHAT TO WATCH FOR
This could be a high-scoring matchup between Oregon State’s Jake Luton and Stanford’s K.J. Costello. Costello has had three 300-yard games over the Cardinal’s past four. Connor Wedington will start at WR in place of injured JJ ArcegaWhiteside, and it could be Wedington’s chance to thrive. The Beavers’ starting receivers, Timmy Hernandez, Isaiah Hodgins and Trevon Bradford, have combined for 110 catches for 1,323 yards and 10 touchdowns.
