Riley Leads OSU into an Upset to Remember
September 26, 2012, 2:42 pm
It isn't surprising that this past weekend in college football had yet another huge upset. What is surprising is that this upset was once again delivered by our own Oregon State Beavers. Mike Riley has led the Beavers now to a 2-0 season, most recently defeating UCLA on their own home turf 27-20.
After this upset OSU has now skyrocketed into the rankings up to #18, and sadly UCLA has completely fallen off. But UCLA never stood a chance, once Riley made a single promise to his team.
"When we have gone to LA before, we haven't done that well. UCLA, all that stuff so, I thought I'd lighten it up a little bit. I said, 'Hey if we win the game, we'll all go to In & Out, and I'm buying.' That's how it came about; I had an ulterior motive to the whole thing."
Even though the Beavers are living the high life after this big victory, they have not overlooked the difficult games to come, for instance this weekend’s game with Arizona.
"They have been another one of those teams like UCLA; their numbers are pretty staggering offensively. It is pretty impressive."
Only the weekend will tell if Oregon State can keep up this amazing winning streak. Listen to the entire interview below:
