CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) Oregon State has this weekend off, something that has allowed the Beavers to rest up and reassess following the loss to Stanford in their Pac-12 opener.
Oregon State has gone 2-2 so far in its first year - a rebuilding year - under coach Gary Andersen.
"I think we are definitely improving in areas. We need to work hard to focus as coaches and players to improve in other areas. We're gaining ground," Andersen said this week on the Pac-12 coaches' teleconference. "We're in a great conference, we understand that. You have to play at a very high level to be competitive, let alone win games in this conference.
