When Oregon State Has the Ball: 

Just days ago QB Cody Vaz was named the starter for the Beavers.  There is going to be a lot of pressure on Vaz, who will get a big helping hand if RB Storm Woods can have a solid performance to open up the passing attack.  If OSU wants to win, then the passing game needs to be on point and the Texas secondary needs to be caught off guard.  Look for a competitive ball game no matter who has the ball.

When Texas Has the Ball: 

With the recent announcement that QB David Ash was going to start, Case McCoy seemed to not really care about anyone but himself.  McCoy, little brother of former record-setting Texas QB Colt McCoy, broke team rules and is suspended for the game.  Both QBs saw plenty of action and would have probably both seen time in the bowl game.  The Beavers won’t have much trouble stopping the run as they’ll likely clog up the middle and DE Scott Crichton will be a force to be reckoned with.  If Crichton can get himself going early, Texas may have a hard time finding the endzone.  If Ash can get the ball off, both Jaxson Shipley and Mike Davis will need to step up and make plays.
