The Cal Poly Mustangs and Oregon State Beavers meet Saturday in college football action at Reser Stadium.
The Cal Poly Mustangs look for a monster upset here to get a game above a .500 record. The Cal Poly Mustangs have lost four of their last six road games. Jalen Hamler is completing 76 percent of his passes for 403 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Hamler must continue to take care of the ball for the Mustangs to have a chance here. J.J. Koski and Quentin Harrison have combined for 401 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Duy Tran-Sampson has one reception. The Cal Poly Mustangs ground game is averaging 275 yards per contest, and Tran-Sampson leads the way with 180 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Cal Poly is allowing 37.5 points and 496 yards per game. Carter Nichols leads the Cal Poly Mustangs with 19 tackles, Myles Cecil has one sack and Matt Shotwell has one interception.
The Oregon State Beavers need a victory here to rebound from a rough 0-2 start to the season. The Oregon State Beavers have lost six straight home games. Jake Luton is completing 51.4 percent of his passes for 420 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Luton has six touchdown passes in his last three games. Isaiah Hodgins and Tyjon Lindsey have combined for 316 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Kolby Taylor has six receptions. The Oregon State Beavers ground game is averaging 215 yards per contest, and Jermar Jefferson leads the way with 270 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Oregon State is allowing 41.5 points and 521.5 yards per game. Shawn Wilson leads the Oregon State Beavers with 16 tackles, Avery Roberts has one sack and Nahshon Wright has one interception.
The Cal Poly Mustangs aren't one of those FCS teams you should fear, and the defensive effort through two games makes this year no different. Still, I'm not laying this many points with the Oregon State Beavers, one of the worst teams yet again in the Pac-12 and has a defense you can move the ball on. I wouldn't touch this game personally, but if forced to pick, I'd lean toward the points.
