CORVALLIS - It's easy to forget the Oregon State football team almost qualified for a bowl game last year.

Were it not for a game-ending touchdow at Washington State in the season finale, the Beavers would have had six wins and been bowl eligible. And, how long has that been?

It was 2013 with coach Mike Riley, who left for Nebraska after the following season.

In actuality, that's only five seasons, which isn't that long in the big stadium of college football suffering.

Smith has high hopes for this season built around quarterback xxx Gebbia, as he preps the team for its season-opener against Washington State Saturday at Reser Stadium.

Oregon State has been set as a 2-point favorite over the Cougars, primarily because its playing at home. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m.
