Rashaad Reynolds, Oregon St. Rough Up Boise St. In Hawaii Bowl
HONOLULU - Rashaad Reynolds and Oregon State made the most of their final chance to stop a costly losing streak.
Reynolds returned two fumbles for touchdowns, helping the Beavers beat Boise State 38-23 in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl on Tuesday night.
Oregon State won six of its first seven games of the season. Then a 20-12 home loss to then-No. 8 Stanford started a five-game slide that came to an end when the Beavers (7-6) set several records in handing Boise State its worst loss in two months.
Oregon State coach Mike Riley said stopping the skid was the biggest deal for his team.
"They've worked hard, they haven't lost their focus even though there's been some discouragement, they didn't let it stay with them," Riley said. "I loved how they've responded all year."
Biletnikoff Award-winner Brandin Cooks grabbed eight balls for 60 yards and a touchdown. He extended his Pac-12 single-season record to 128 receptions and broke the conference record for yards receiving with 1,730, passing Southern California's Marqise Lee. | More |
