CORVALLIS, ore. -- For one Beaver, the Washington game has been circled on the calendar for a long time.  

Growing up in Tacoma, WA, Scott Crichton was a big Huskies fan, and thought he was going to play for Washington.  Things didn't work out, and he ended up at Oregon State.

Good thing for the Beavers, as Crichton is averaging 1.3 sacks per game this season, second best in the country.

"It's personal, but it's also business," says Crichton about facing Washington.  "For me, it's whatever now. I just want to do what's best for my team and get the win."

"I'm sure he's fired up, I would be," says Jordan Poyer.  "Going back home, he's going to have a Scott Crichton game.  That's Scott Crichton, he's the man."

Earlier this week, Crichton was named to the Bednarik Award Watch List, which recognizes the nation's top defender each week.  He is the type of pass rusher that any team would love to have.

"Personally, I haven't heard any personal vendettas or anything," says Dylan Wynn about Crichton returning home.  "It's how we look at everything, going in 0-0, and just taking it like any other game."

A win against the Huskies on Saturday will mean a little bit more than just revenge for Crichton.  It will mean Oregon State is 7-0 for the first time in school history.
