CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - With no In-N-Out double-doubles to be found in the state, Oregon State coach Mike Riley will have to come up with another incentive for the No. 8 Beavers this weekend against Utah.
Not that they need it.
The Beavers have opened 5-0 and climbed to their highest ranking since they finished the 2000 season at No. 4 after a Fiesta Bowl victory over Notre Dame.
It is a stunning turnaround for a team that went just 3-9 last season and was picked to finish last in the Pac-12 North. Instead, the Beavers are a win away from bowl eligibility at the halfway point of their season.
