Beavers open season today against Portland State

The Oregon State Beavers open their 2009 college football season today, as they host the Portland State Vikings at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Oregon.

The Beavers are ranked #25 to start this season(after finishing last year at #18), while Portland State(4-7 last season) still tries to find their way under the leadership of Jerry Glanville. The Beavers and Vikings have met just twice on the football field, with the Beavers taking a 51-14 win in Portland back in 1983, then winning 41-14 in Corvallis in 2005. The Beavers, heading into today's action, also have a 25-game non-conference home game winning streak.

The Beavers will once again feature the one-two punch of the Rodgers brothers, Jaquizz and James, while Sean Canfield is expected to get most of the snaps at quarterback. The most notable conncetion between the two Oregon schools lies in the Kavanaugh family. Senior Taylor Kavanaugh is a punt returner/holder/reserve receiver for the Beavers, while his brother Connor, a sophomore, is a backup quarterback for the Vikings. They are both #1 place kick holders for their teams as well. Vikings sophomore defensive end Carl Sommer, junior kicker Jake Webber and sophomore quarterback Justin Engstrom all started their collegiate careers with the Beavers.

Kickoff is set for 11:30am PDT(thanks to TV of course), belived to be the earliest start time for a Beaver football game at Reser Stadium, which opened in 1953. Mike Parker calls the action on the Beaver Sports Network, with the radio broadcast's internet stream available here at The game can also be seen on Fox College Sports Pacific(Channel 802 at my house).
