Through six games this season, Oregon State football fans have seen their team in Corvallis twice–against Louisville (September 18) and Arizona State (October 2). OSU has played eight of the past 11 games away, and the 28-day absence is the longest streak in the country.
For this Saturday’s Homecoming game against California, it will feel more like a uniting of long-distance lovers than football.
Reser Stadium might be filled if the unpredictable autumn weather doesn’t deter attendees. Two-hundred-forty Club seats and a few ADA (handicap) seats are still available, Sports Information said.
But this is just the start of things to come for Beaver Nation. OSU will play four of its final six games at home, including No. 24 (AP) USC and No. 1 Oregon.
