With only eight minutes left, Isaiah Newell scored on a 1-yard run to give No. twenty-two Oregon State the lead, and they went on to win 38-34 on Weekend. No. ten Oregon made costly mistakes inside the 4th quarter, which allowed No. twenty-two Oregon State to capitalize.
The Ducks handed their opponents a fake punt on 3 consecutive drives even as Beavers fell behind 31-10 midway through the 3rd quarter as well as 34-17 soon in the 4th quarter. Without trying a single throw, Oregon State scored scores on all 3 drives.

Jonathan Smith, State of Oregon fifth-year head coach, led the Beavers to their greatest regular season performance to date after taking over a team that finished 1-11 in 2017.
