One more day until Cougar Football

Let that sink in.

Good morning, Coug fans! Tomorrow is the day! Our Cougs face the Oregon State Beavers. Personally, I am thrilled. It’s nice to have something to look forward to again, I think we could all use the break.

Let’s chat about some of the Oregon State players.

It’s looking like, according to the Beavers depth chart, their starting wide receiver will be Champ Flemings. He’s 5’5”, and didn’t make a grand impression last season with three touchdowns total.

However, their starting running back, Jermar Jefferson, has some pretty decent statistics. His first season with Oregon State was much stronger, but I don’t want to discount his running game.

As for defense, Isaac Hodgins will lead on the defensive line- he’s got 22 total solo tackles from his career so far. I’m not shaking in my boots, but we know not to discount anything.

Safety/Defensive back David Morris will be on the field- he’s one to watch out for.

I hope everyone is staying safe, and while I wish we could be together tomorrow, I get why we can’t. Go Cougs!
