Let's all talk about the Cougs and Beavs.

We're getting close to kickoff between WSU and OSU in Corvallis. Can the Cougs win an incredible sixth straight and clinch a bowl game? Will Oregon State play like a different team at home, as it has done throughout Pac-12 play?

The weather is about as good as WSU could ask for, considering it's a late-October game in Oregon. The forecast is for temperatures in the low 50s, dry, and virtually no wind. In other words, the Air Raid should be unencumbered by the elements.

As with the previous two games, WSU is benefitting a bit from the opponent's misfortune at quarterback. Tonight, they will face sophomore Marcus McMaryion, who came in to the season as OSU's third-string quarterback. McMaryion struggled mightily last week at Washington, completing just 12 of 26 passes, with zero touchdowns and two interceptions. It also doesn't hurt that OSU's biggest running threat, Ryan Nall, is questionable due to a foot injury.

WSU comes in with some issues of its own, particularly on the defensive line, as nose tackle Robert Barber is not in the lineup because reasons. Despite that, and the possibility that they'll be missing Cody O'Connell, WSU should win so long as they don't turn the ball over and give OSU a bunch of short fields.

So gather 'round the old desktop/laptop/tablet/phone/teletype and share your thoughts as the Cougs seek to extend an improbable winning streak.

Go Cougs.
