Live Updates: Oregon State 21

Oregon State (6-3, 3-3) returns to Reser Stadium on a chilly evening in Corvallis for their penultimate home game of the 2022 football season and hosts California (3-6, 1-5). After a disappointing loss a week ago, the Beavers are hoping to regain momentum for the final stretch of the season against a Golden Bears squad that hasn’t won in their last five games.

This is the 75th meeting between the programs. California has a slight 39-35 lead in the all-time series, but Oregon State is 16-13 at home going into the 30th matchup in Corvallis. The Golden Bears won last year’s matchup at Berkeley.
