    Oregon State’s 38-34 win over Oregon means Vegas baby? Or Sun Bowl

    Oregon State’s 38-34 win over Oregon means Vegas baby? Or Sun Bowl

    On this week’s episode of the Beaver Banter podcast, The Oregonian/OregonLive’s Nick Daschel and former Beaver cornerback Kyle White look at last Saturday’s Reser Stadium thriller, Oregon State’s 38-34 win over Oregon.
    They talk about the game, what it means and how it impacts the Beavers’ bowl situation.
    Here are some highlights from this week’s show:

    At 9-3, is Oregon State attractive to the Vegas or Holiday bowls? Or do the Beavers fall to the Sun?

    How players react when trying to bounce back from a terrible official’s call, as was the case for OSU during the second quarter.

    Did the game turn on Damien Martinez’s 43-yard run late in the third quarter?

    Those who think the Pac-12 doesn’t play defense didn’t watch Oregon State’s goal line stand.

    Oregon State’s win over Oregon was the best performance of the season, but it’s not a slam dunk No. 1.
