Corvallis, Ore.-- Still searching for its first win this season, Oregon State hosts Arizona this Saturday. Both teams are looking to snap four-game losing streaks and turn their seasons around.
Oregon State has won 10 of the last 12 meetings against Arizona, including a 2-point victory last season.
It was in that game that the Beaver's fortunes changed on a single play, when wide receiver James Rodgers went down with that gruesome knee injury.
Ever since then, the Beavers have gone just 2-9.
"It's going to be a little different, but at the same time I still have to do the job that I'm coached to do during the week,” said Rodgers about facing the Wildcats. “I'll probably have a little more fire but it won't be anything to get me out of my game."
The Beavers are 0-4 for the first time since 1996, but head coach Mike Riley thinks the first victory is getting closer.
"I've been encouraged by the improvement of this team, but we need to get a win," said Riley.
"We've been working hard since day one,” said quarterback Sean Mannion. “We just have to keep going. We're improving each game and each day. We're real close it seems"
Riley also said freshman running back Malcolm Agnew is questionable to play against the Wildcats.
