UW at OSU
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. at Corvallis, Ore.
Records: Washington Huskies (6-4 overall, 3-4 Pac-12), Oregon State Beavers (6-4, 4-3)
Outlook: Oregon State and Washington are a lot alike: Both hit a stride earlier this season then ran into misfortune. The two 6-4 teams meet tonight, with both jockeying for position behind Oregon and Stanford in the tough Pac-12 North. The Beavers got off to a disastrous start, losing at home to Eastern Washington in the season opener. Then they reeled off six straight wins, before falling back with losses to Stanford, USC and Arizona State. Washington won its first four games and popped up to No. 15 in the AP Top 25. Consecutive losses to Stanford, Oregon and Arizona State followed. The Huskies have won two of their last three, beating Arizona and Colorado.
