BN Gameday: Oregon State Second Half Thread

Well ... it has been a while since we have gotten to write a short blurb leading into second half with a smile in our faces. FWIW Coach Rick Neuheisel's UCLA Bruins at least showed up in the first half in Corvallis. At the end of first half the Bruins are up by a score of 21-10(boxscore). The score could have been dominating if not for three holding calls and a special teams meltdown towards the end of the first half giving up a TD to Beaver punt return team.

The Bruin offense has generally looked pretty sharp in the first half. We are throwing it down field. Our receivers are catching with their hands (including Embree) and the running game churning out chunks of yards at the time. Even the defense has made some huge plays in the first half giving us momentum including from much maligned guys like Sean Westgate. Except for one long drive the Beavers had in their first series which resulted in a FG, the Bruin defense held the Beavers in check.

But hey we need to stay even keeled. Remember after all this is Oregon State we're playing.  These guys lost to Sacramento State.  At home.  So, no need to make radical conclusions about the state of our program just yet. Plus we saw the meltdown at the end of the first half. Still it's more fun to write this kind of blurb than the ones we had to write during half time of San Jose State. Let's hope the Bruins instead of keeping it conservative turn on the after burners in second half and close this out.

GO BRUINS.
