Beavers' star running back Yvenson Bernard ran for 165 yards and two touchdowns and quarterback Sean Canfield completed eight of 19 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown.

Alexis Serna made a 37-yard field goal in the 3rd quarter.[3]

Yvenson Bernard ran for 2 touchdowns and 77 yards as Lyle Moevao played mistake free in his second career start.

Oregon

Beavers own the State again. James Rodgers scores on a fly sweep in double OT. OSU's stingy D stuffs Jonathan Stewart on 4th down, to clinch the first victory on enemy soil for either team since 1996.
