Beavers dominant in win over Bears

The Oregon State Beavers put in a solid night of football Saturday night, beating the California Golden Bears 31-14 in Berekely, California.

The Beavers led 7-0 after one, as Sean Canfield scored on a one-yard sneak. Justin Kahut added the PAT.

James Rodgers caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from Canfield and Kahut converted, putting Oregon State up 14-0 in the second quarter. California responded with a touchdown from Jahvid Best, who scooted around the left end to score from 7-yards out. Best, who jumped over a defender to score, landed hard on his back, suffering a concussion on the play, forcing a 13-minute delay while emergency personnel tended to him. After the delay, which saw Best taken from the field on a stretcher and to a local hospital, Giorgio Tavecchio kicked the PAT, drawing the Bears to within 7, at 14-7. The Beavers got the points back on a Jordan Bishop 3-yard touchdown reception and Kahut extra point, leading 21-7 at halftime.

Kahut drilled a 24-yard field goal in the third quarter, putting Oregon State on top 24-7, heading into the final 15 minutes.

Jacquizz Rodgers, contained most of the night by the Bear defense, scored on a 24-yard run in the fourth. Kahut kicked the PAT and the Beavers lead was 24, at 31-7. California finally put together a scoring drive, with Kevin Riley passing to Verran Tucker for a 2-yard touchdown. Tavecchio kicked the PAT but the Bears could get no closer and Oregon State left town with the 31-14 win.

The Beavers dominated statistically. They led in first downs 23-14, in third down efficiency 11-of-18 to 4-of-13, while also converting the only fourth down attempt of the night. Oregon State won in total yardage 436 to 239, rushing yardage 94-39 and passing yardage 342-200.
