Boy how times have changed. When we voted on this game during the preseason, many were picking Oregon State to finish last in the Pac-12 North and some were already heating up Mike Riley's seat. Now, Oregon State is 3-0 and the No. 14 team in the country.
Back then WSU was supposed to be the team pulling games out of no where and rising up the charts. Now, well, yeah, let's not talk about now.
As a result I have a feeling 82 percent of you won't be picking WSU like you did during the offseason. Then again, we could always follow the wise words of HowBoutDemCowboys! who in his/her one comment on CougCenter said:
OSU is highly irrelevant in Div 1 football.
