After upsetting then-No. 9 Oregon, the nation has begun to take notice of the turnaround developing in Corvallis.
Well, one person in particular to be exact.
For the first time since 2014, Oregon State has received a vote in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll after defeating the Ducks 41-38 at Reser Stadium in front of a nationally televised audience.
The last time the Beavs got votes was Week 5 of the 2014 season when Oregon State was 3-0 with wins over Portland State, Hawai'i, and San Diego State. Oregon State would lose to then-No. 18 USC 35-10 to fall to 3-1.
Oregon State has not been ranked since the 2013 season when the AP ranked the Beavs at No. 25 twice that season: once in the preseason before Oregon State lost to Eastern Washington 49-46 and again heading into Week 9 before a 20-12 loss to No. 6 Stanford.
With a win over Utah on December 5th, Oregon State can have its first winning record since starting the 2015 season 2-1. The Beavers have not finished with a winning record since the 7-6 2013 season.
