Oregon State football meets USC this Saturday in Reser Stadium, and in an effort to help improve the spectacle, OSU Athletics is asking for an official “Orange Out”.
The Beavers must win two of their final three games in order to become bowl eligible, and the team has said it will do all it can to win the remaining competitions. But they call for greater fan support during these down times.
“A sea of orange at Reser Stadium will inspire the team,” Riley said in a release by OSU Athletics. “There is no question Beaver Nation has played a vital role in our big wins and we need that full support in our remaining games.”
This weekend’s meeting will be the final time the Beavers play the Trojans until 2013. With the expansion to the Pac-12 Conference coming into place next season, scheduling has put the annual rivalry at a halt. The team looks forward to this match-up, as the Beavers have knocked down a powerful Trojans team in 2006 and 2008 in Corvallis. ABC will broadcast the game live at 5 p.m.
A request for an “Orange Out” has also been made for the 114th Civil War on Dec. 4.
