Washington hits the road with a perfect record through four games this week with its GPS set on Corvallis, Ore., where the Huskies (4-0, 1-0) will meet the Oregon State Beavers (1-3, 0-1).
Oregon State is coming off a disheartening loss to Washington State in which quarterback Jake Luton left on a stretcher. The Beavers have had an extra week to prepare, though, which can only be positive for a team in need of a boost. Meanwhile, the Huskies are riding high after dominating Colorado last week for the second time in as many meetings, dismantling the Buffaloes 37-10 in a rematch of the Pac-12 title game. Washington enters ranked No. 6 in both polls.
Washington leads the all-time series with Oregon State 62-34-4, and have won 21 of the last 29 meetings. The Huskies defeated the Beavers last season, 41-17, and have outscored Oregon State 93-24 in their last two meetings. Washington has also won eight straight road games (not counting neutral-site games).

Oregon State-Washington keys to the game
Limit the mistakes
Washington loves to take advantage of opponents’ weaknesses in the special teams phase of the game. It starts with punt coverage, against one of the nation’s most dangerous return men in Dante Pettis. Containing Pettis, or kicking away from him, can save the Beavers from a big blow in the special teams area of the game. Ball control will also be key in keeping this a close game, as Washington can score early and often.
Stop the run
It sounds simple, but consider this: When Washington has a player rush for 100 or more yards in a game, the Huskies are 208-65-3 all time. Since 1990, the Huskies have rushed for 200 yards or more in a game 110 times, and have won 93 of those contests. Oregon State is T-106th in the nation against the run, giving up 198.8 yards per game. They must improve drastically on that number, or it will be a ground-powered rout.
Play well consistently
Oregon State has gotten off to a rough start with a 1-3 record, but has 8 more games to put things together. Two-thirds of the season remains for the Beavers to figure things out, starting with this contest against a difficult opponent in Washington. They’ll have the home crowd on their side in a tough matchup, and even if things don’t turn out in their favor, consistent play can go a long way toward turning the season around.
