Beavers Season Still In Doubt

Ahhh, the season that could have been.  And technically, still could be.

After a gut check loss to Washington last Saturday, the Beavs have a string of must win games to ensure another trip to a bowl game. 

Here's the season schedule for the remainder of the season:

Oct. 30th - Cal
Nov. 6th - at UCLA
Nov. 13th - WSU
Nov. 20th - USC
Nov. 27th - at Stanford
Dec 4th - Oregon

At 3-3 and 2-1 in the PAC-10, and with the rest of the schedule back-loaded against the toughest teams, the Beavers have to beat Cal, UCLA, and WSU.  And after last weekend, that may not be the easiest of tasks.

I say "Oh, the season that could have been" because if we beat UW, then we have a good shot at being undefeated in the Pac-10 going to Stanford on the 27th.  And even if we lost that game, we would still have a shot at the Rose Bowl again if we could upset Oregon.  Now, its a tough road to the Rose Bowl this season. 

On the other hand, if we use the UW game as a learning tool and improve over the next month, its still possible to only have one loss going into Stanford.  Huge, tough game but clearly it won't have been the first and we wouldn't be scared or overmatched.  Its a game the Beavs could win. 

What I'm saying is, while I'm disappointed that we didn't pull that win out all is not lost for this season.

Go Beavs
