Corvallis – It’s a sellout!

Oregon State’s Pac-12 Conference home season opener this Saturday against Washington State at Reser Stadium is officially a sellout in all areas of the stadium. Stadium seating capacity is 45,674 with Saturday’s attendance potentially the largest home crowd in OSU history and is the earliest sellout for a game in any season since stadium expansion in 2005.

“I can’t say enough about our fans; it makes for a big home field advantage when our stadium is full and our players feed off of that excitement,”  head coach Mike Riley said.  “I can’t wait for tomorrow; it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

The No. 14 ranked Beavers are off to a 3-0 start with victories over a pair of nationally ranked teams and look to be 4-0 for the first time since 2002. The game will be televised live by the Pac-12 Networks beginning at 3 p.m. PDT.
