The Oregon State Beavers battle the Arizona State Sun Devils in Pac-12 conference college football action from Reser Stadium in Corvallis on Saturday night.

The Arizona State Sun Devils will look to build on their emphatic first win of the season, improving to 1-2 after a 70-7 beatdown of Arizona in their last matchup. Jayden Daniels has thrown for 562 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception on 59.4% passing while Rachaad White has a team-high 262 rushing yards with 3 touchdowns and DeaMonte Trayanum has 233 rushing yards with 3 scores as well. White is also the Sun Devils’ lone 100+ yard receiver on the year with 123 receiving yards and a touchdown while LV Bunkley-Shelton has a team-high 10 catches. On defense, Evan Field leads ASU with 28 total tackles including 19 solo tackles while Tyler Johnson has a team-high 5 sacks.

The Oregon State Beavers will try to finish the season on a high note after a 27-24 loss to Stanford sent the Beavers to 2-4 on the year. Tristan Gebbia has throw for 824 yards, 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions on 62% passing while Chance Nolan’s tossed for 423 yards, 4 touchdowns and a pick on 54.4% passing. Jermar Jefferson leads the Beavers in rushing with 755 rushing yards with 7 touchdowns while Trevon Bradford leads Oregon State’s receiving group with 24 catches for 239 yards.

Arizona State is 1-5 Ats in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games in December while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record. Arizona State is 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings between these two teams and 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams at Oregon State.

I get that the Sun Devils found their offense against Arizona and their losses this year have all been close, but we’re getting a free touchdown here with the more reliable and more proven offense in my opinion. Jermar Jefferson’s a stud in the Oregon State backfield and I liked what I saw from Chance Nolan under center in the last game. I think Arizona State does win this game but it’s a 3-4 point game, not a touchdown. I’ll take Oregon State and the points here.
