The 3-0 Oregon State Beavers will attempt to stay hot when they host Washington State on Saturday.

For the first time this season, No. 14 Oregon State will enter a game as the favorite. The Beavers are 13.5-point favorites for their game against Washington State on Saturday after being the underdog in each of their first three games.

OSU is coming off back-to-back Pac-12 road victories and will play just their second home game of the season. Led by Sean Mannion, the Beavers have one of the best passing attacks in the country. OSU enters Saturday's game ranked fourth in the country, averaging 362.7 passing yards per game. Mannion has completed 64.6 percent of his passes this season with six touchdown passes and only one interception.
