Oregon State selected for Las Vegas Bowl

LAS VEGAS — BYU is headed for the Las Vegas Bowl for the fifth straight year, this time to face Oregon State.

The 15th-ranked Cougars will be playing the Beavers on Dec. 22 in the first meeting of two ranked teams in the bowl game's history.

The Beavers (8-4) were one win away from playing in the Rose Bowl, but lost to No. 7 Oregon in the Civil War game last Thursday.

"This will be one of the more intriguing bowl games of this year," Oregon State coach Mike Riley says.

The Beavers are 8-4 overall in NCAA sanctioned bowl games and will arrive in Las Vegas with the nation's second-longest active win streak in bowls at five games.

This will be the first postseason meeting between the Cougars and Beavers, who have played eight times in the regular season. Oregon State has a 5-3 lead in the series.
