There are two names in the Pacific Northwest that few college football fans nor casual gamblers know about. Coach Jonathan Smith and the Oregon State Beavers are not a hot ticket in the casual sector. But Oregon State is one of the most rapidly improving programs in the country. Smith is a former OSU player and an alum. Thus, he understands the unique challenges in Beaver Country and how to navigate them. Oregon State will face the Florida Gators in the Las Vegas Bowl. It is a great reward for a team of the future.

Florida Gators Weekly Matchup

On Saturday, December 17, 2022, the Oregon State Beavers of the Pac-12 Conference will face the Florida Gators of the Southeastern Conference in the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kickoff time is 7:30 p.m. ET, with television coverage on ABC.

Casual gamblers will gravitate towards the name brand Florida Gators of the SEC. By contrast, the Wise Guys love an anonymous quality team like Oregon State.

Last game, the Oregon State Beavers stunned the Oregon Ducks 38-34 as 1-point home favorites. The game went over the total of 56.5. Oregon State has a record of 9-3 straight up, 10-2 against the spread, and 7-5 over/under the total. Oregon State ranks 60th for total offense, 103rd for passing, 26th for rushing and 37th for scoring. Defensively they rank 30th overall, 75th against the pass, 20th against the rush, and 31st for points allowed. Also, Oregon State ranks 31st for fewest turnovers lost and 39th for takeaways.

Isaiah Newell ran for the go-ahead touchdown with 8:11 remaining. Oregon State took advantage of critical mistakes in the fourth quarter by Oregon to rally for a big comeback win. The Beavers trailed 31-10 late in the third quarter and 34-17 early in the fourth, but the Ducks gave their rivals a short field on three consecutive possessions. Oregon State converted all three drives into touchdowns without attempting a single pass.

Oregon State concluded its best regular season under fifth-year coach Jonathan Smith, who took over a program that went 1-11 in 2017. The Beavers couldn't have done it without the Ducks' help.

Oregon State ran for 268 yards and five touchdowns, overcoming its lack of a passing game. Damien Martinez led the way with 103 yards on 15 carries, his sixth consecutive 100-yard game. Gulbranson was just 6 of 13 for 60 yards with two interceptions, but he ran for two scores. Newell scored on his only two carries.

Florida Gators Weekly Recap

Last game, the Florida Gators lost 45-38 against the Florida State Seminoles as 9.5-point road dogs. The game went over the total of 58.5. Florida has a record of 6-6 straight up, 7-5 against the spread, and 7-5 over/under the total. Florida ranks 32nd for total offense, 68th for passing, 16th for rushing and 43rd for scoring. Defensively they rank 104th overall, 89th against the pass, 104th against the rush, and 91st for points allowed. Also, Florida ranks 50th for fewest turnovers lost and 83rd for takeaways.

Trey Benson had a 17-yard touchdown run with 4:06 left to give Florida State a win over Florida. Benson had 111 yards rushing and three touchdowns, and Jordan Travis ran for 83 yards and two touchdowns. The Seminoles ran for 228 yards - the seventh straight time they surpassed the 200-yard rushing mark.

Anthony Richardson completed just 5 of 17 passes, but three were for touchdowns. Ricky Pearsall had a career-best 148 receiving yards, including touchdowns of 52 and 43 yards in the first half. Trevor Etienne had a season-best 129 yards on 17 carries, and Montrell Johnson Jr. had 85 yards on 17 carries.

Florida played without a few of its top players. Justin Shorter, who had a team-leading 577 receiving yards, did not play. Safety Rashad Torrence II, the leading tackler with 76, was also out.

The Florida Gators started the 2022 season off with a bang by beating the Utah Utes in a primetime season opener on national TV. But that proved to be the peak moment of a disappointing season. First year head coach Mark Napier was not expected to lead Florida to an SEC championship. But it was hoped that he wouldn’t hover around the .500 mark. Napier and the Gators are going to a bowl. And Napier has moved the needle as far as staffing, recruiting, and facilities. But when the Gators lost at the Vanderbilt Commodores on November 19, it was cause for pause on where things really stand.
