CORVALLIS — A good portion of Beaver Nation had given up on Oregon State entering the final three games of the regular season.

Good thing the Beavers didn’t give up on themselves.

Jordan Poyer was a special-teams hero, Justin Kahut kicked three field goals and Oregon State’s maligned defense came up big in the Beavers’ 36-7 upset of 20th-ranked Southern Cal Saturday night at Reser Stadium.

Read the rest here.

Is a second triple in the offing?

Kyle Busch pulled away from Kevin Harvick during a 23-lap run to the finish to win Saturday’s Ford 300 Nationwide Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

With his 13th victory in 29 starts this season, Busch extended his single-season win record. The victory was his 43rd in the Nationwide Series, leaving him five behind all-time leader Mark Martin.

Busch won his second race of the weekend, having triumphed in Friday’s Ford 200 Truck Series race at the 1.5-mile track. The Truck Series champion owner with his own No. 18 Toyota, Busch helped secure the Nationwide owners’ championship for Joe Gibbs Racing with his victory Saturday.

In Sunday’s Ford 400, as JGR teammate Denny Hamlin attempts to win his first Sprint Cup title, Busch will try to sweep the weekend for the second time this season. He won races in all three series at Bristol in August -- the first weekend triple in NASCAR history.

Busch likes his chances to repeat.

“I feel like we’ve got a good race car,” Busch said. “We worked awful hard (In Saturday’s Cup practice) on changing a lot of things and seeing what we could learn. The heat of (Sunday), though, is going to be pretty crazy.

“I always feel like I do better at night than I do in the daytime, so with the daytime race tomorrow, it’ll be a little hectic. We have to work as hard as we can to try to win the race, first of all. Secondly, we’ll work toward trying to make sure we do everything we can to get Denny Hamlin a championship.”

Harvick ran second Saturday, followed by 2010 series champion Brad Keselowski, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Trevor Bayne.

Harvick’s winning chances disappeared when Chase Mattioli’s No. 27 Ford spun off Turn 2 and pounded the inside wall on the backstretch.

“For us, we didn’t need that last caution,” Harvick said. “Our car just got way too tight on the restart there and just carried that ‘tight’ all the way through the last run. We got beat on the restart, and Kyle (got ahead) far enough to where we couldn’t catch him.”

Danica Patrick qualified fifth, pitted early and led four laps -- her first of the season -- by staying out while others pitted under caution on Lap 24. Soon after a restart on Lap 28, however, she dropped back to 21st in the running order. She finished a career-best 19th in her 13th start in the series.
Stenhouse clinched Raybestos rookie of the year honors in the series.


U.S. President John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, arrived in San Antonio, Texas on this date in 1963. They were beginning an ill-fated, two-day tour of Texas that would end in Dallas.
