Pac-12: Oregon State tries to break losing streak

Washington State already ruined the Pac-12's opportunity to go unbeaten in the bowl season, but now Oregon State will try to break its own losing streak.

The Beavers (6-6), lost their last five games of the regular season, meet Boise State in Tuesday's Hawaii Bowl in Honolulu (6 p.m. MST, ESPN).

Before diving into this game, a look back at Washington State's 48-45 loss to Colorado State in the New Mexico Bowl. One question: What happened? The Cougars had to work hard to lose this game, after leading 45-30. Two fumbles in the last two minutes enabled CSU to produce a touchdown, two-point conversion and field goal to somehow win in regulation.

USC's 45-20 victory over Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl was impressive, but the Pac-12's bowl record already was spoiled. That's a good word for Oregon State's season, after the Beavers once stood 6-1. Everybody knew the schedule was going to get tougher, but OSU embarrassed itself against Washington in a 69-27 loss.

OSU did play very well in a loss to Oregon, losing via a late touchdown pass. But the Beavers really need to beat Boise State, otherwise it will be a long offseason. The Broncos, meanwhile, are in a coaching transition, with assistant Bob Gregory serving as the interim coach before Bryan Harsin takes over the program.

Boise State once lost a Hawaii Bowl to East Carolina and has not been a great bowl team overall, despite its BCS success. So this is a good chance for the Beavers to overcome their downward slide at the end of 2013. Oregon State 31, Boise State 24.
