CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Washington State has every reason to be confident coming into Saturdays game against Oregon State.The Cougars have a five-game winning streak going, theyre undefeated in Pac-12 play and theyve nearly cracked the national rankings. And yet, theyre wary of the Beavers.Anybody can be beat in the Pac-12, wide receiver Gabe Marks said.There may be reason for just a bit of concern. The only team that the Beavers have beaten in Pac-12 play this season is California with its so-called Bear Raid offense under Sonny Dykes. The Cougars, of course, have coach Mike Leachs Air Raid offense. Dykes was an assistant on Leachs staff at Texas Tech.The Air Raid is certainly effective this season. Washington State (5-2, 4-0 Pac-12) ranks fourth nationally with an average of 366.6 passing yards per game. The Cougars are also ranked 15th for scoring offense with an average of 40.5 points per game.Quarterback Luke Falk is ranked fourth nationally with an average of 358.7 passing yards per game and fifth for total yards with 2,511. Hes thrown 19 touchdown passes this season.Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said there are similarities and differences between the Cougars and Cal. But that doesnt make the Beavers challenge any easier. Oregon State is ranked No. 21 nationally for pass defense.These guys obviously have a very, very potent offense, score a bunch of points and are playing solid defense, a salty tough defense, run the ball well, are physical, aggressive, Andersen said. The team is playing at a very high level, and winning football games.The Beavers (2-5, 1-3) are coming off a 41-17 loss at No. 4 Washington last weekend. The Cougars are coming off a 37-32 victory over Arizona State.HONORING THE PAST: The Beavers will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the 1942 Rose Bowl championship team on Saturday. That game, which came after the attack on Pearl Harbor, was not played in Pasadena because large gatherings were canceled on the West Coast for fear of another attack. But Oregon States opponent, Duke, offered to host the game and the Beavers traveled to Durham, where they won 20-16 on New Years Day.Oregon State will also honor a Japanese player for the Beavers, Jack Yoshihara, who was not allowed to travel with the team and was later sent to an internment camp. According to Oregon States school website, a pair of FBI agents informed coach Lon Stiner that Yoshihara would not be allowed to go.Yoshihara passed away in 2009. His daughter will attend the game.NO COMMENT: Mike Leach was apparently still salty about the big fine that the Pac-12 levied on him for comments he made about Arizona State prior to last weekends victory. Leach was reprimanded and fined $10,000 for accusing the Sun Devils of stealing signs.He declined to talk specifically about the Beavers at risk of getting fined or publicly reprimanded.INJURIES: Oregon State has been decimated by injuries, especially at quarterback. The Beavers lost starter Darell Garretson for the season because of an ankle injury against Utah. Backup Conor Blount was injured in the same game and sat out of the loss to the Huskies, but could be available this weekend. Marcus McMaryion, the third-string quarterback, was promoted and is expected to start against the Cougars.Oregon State also got some good news this week concerning running back Ryan Nall, who was out of the walking boot hes been using and was back at full-contact practice. Nall leads the Beavers with 464 rushing yards on 64 carries.BARBER SUSPENDED: The Cougars will be playing their first game this season without starting nose tackle Robert Barber, who is suspended until July 2017. According to the Seattle Times, Barber was originally expelled for violating the schools conduct code for an alleged assault at an off-campus party in August. He appealed the ruling and was suspended. Because he is a senior, it could be that his career at Washington State is over. Barber has not been charged with a crime.THE SERIES: It will be the 101st meeting between the two teams in a series that dates back to 1903. Washington State has the all-time edge 50-47-3 and has won the last two, including last years 52-31 win in Pullman. Air Max Pas Cher France .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Nate Ebner couldnt really have set up more of a dramatic finish for the U.S. team at the Olympics.The New England Patriots safety and special teams player, given special permission to play rugby sevens for the United States in Rio de Janeiro, ran almost half the length of the field with world champion Fijian players in pursuit and scored with a minute to go in the most crucial game of the pool stage.The U.S. team needed to stay within four points of Fiji in the last group-stage game on Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals at the expense of 12-time world series champion New Zealand.At the moment Ebner scored, the difference was five points with a conversion to come -- two crucial points that would have cut the difference to three.U.S. captain Maddison Hughes took the conversion attempt, wide on the right sideline, but couldnt angle it between the uprights.Seconds later, the Americans were out of contention with a 24-19 loss, and New Zealand got a backdoor pass into the quarterfinals at the expense of the United States.Honestly, Fiji closed me off so much the way they chase so hard, there were three of them, I had no-one to pass to, so I just put the ball down, said Ebner, explaining why he scored in the corner and wasnt able to touch down closer to the posts and make the kick easier for Hughes. We had a minute left and I was confident for Maddy to kick it from anywhere on the field. Hes done it multiple times.Ebner said the Americans did everything they could against back-to-back world sevens series champions Fiji, and it was more disappointing that a last-minute loss to Argentina on the opening day had cost the team a spot in the playoffs.To just lose to the best team in the world, and a great team in Argentina like that, and to not be able to make the quarters -- its heartbreaking, he said. But were going to finish this out strong. Thats all we can do.Ebner grew up playing rugby but switched to play football in ccollege.dddddddddddd The lure of the Olympics drew him back to rugby sevens, and hes not disappointed with the experience.Its been awesome. I wouldnt have done anything differently, he said. I just wish wed had a better day yesterday to put ourselves in a better position.Ultimately we gave everything we had to this -- no regrets at all.Ebner was one of the standouts for the U.S. team which surprised many people with its speed and physical approach to the game.Perry Baker scored in the second half against Fiji, a burst of speed that caught the defense off guard, and Carlin Isles scored three tries in the later classification match against Brazil, a 24-12 win.The Fijians went on to edge New Zealand 12-7 in the quarterfinals and remain on course to win the countrys first ever Olympic medal. Theyll face Japan, the most surprising team at the tournament, in the semifinals.The Japanese players say this Olympics will help them prepare for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. For Ebner, thats too far away to think about.After two more classification matches for ninth-12th matches on Thursday, hell switch gears again from being an Olympian to thinking about his day job.Ill go back to camp and get into the NFL football season, he said. Hopefully Ill be in better shape.He said hed probably have to explain some of the finer points of rugby to his Patriots teammates who were following the Olympics closely, but thought the tournament was a good advertisement for rugby. The U.S. women placed fifth, holding the gold medal-winning Australians to a 12-12 tie in the group stage and having chances to beat silver medalist New Zealand before losing 5-0 in the quarterfinals.Its been exciting to play, he said of the extra exposure the Olympics brought to the game. I can only imagine people who havent seen it, its got to be exciting to watch. ' ' '
