Oregon State host San Diego State in final tune-up conference play

San Diego State (2-1) at No. 16 Oregon State (2-0), Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET (FS1)

Line: Oregon by 24.5 according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Series record: Oregon State leads 3-2.

WHAT’S AT STAKE?

Oregon State has a six-game winning streak dating back to last season, the team's longest since 2013. The No. 16 Beavers also have won five straight at home. Oregon State routed both San Jose State and UC Davis to open the season. San Diego State opened the season with three straight home games for the first time since 1967. The Aztecs are coming off a 35-10 loss to UCLA last weekend.

KEY MATCHUP

San Diego State quarterback Jalen Mayden has passed for 445 yards and three touchdowns, and run for 184 yards and two more scores through the team's first three games. But he'll face an Oregon State team that held both of its opponents this season to under 20 points, and has allowed opponents just 103 total rushing yards, which tops the Pac-12 at 51.5 yards a game.
