Uiagalelei played only the first half, completing 8 of 13 passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns while adding another on the ground in a 55-7 Beavers win.

With the PAC-12 dispersing at the end of this year, students at Oregon State University looked back on their favorite Beaver sports moments over their time attending OSU.

Second year – human development and family sciences

“I got to fill the Gill against UCLA this year. That was really cool, my heart was beating so much during the buzzer beater, I couldn’t even watch the game. My partner had to be like ‘OH MY GOD WE DID IT!’.”

“Also, against Arizona, watching the men’s team. It was my partner’s first basketball game, and it was another buzzer-beater. I was like ‘They’re not all like this,’ but we kept on going to basketball games and they were really good.”

“In 2022, the rivalry game, I was a freshman and I thought we were going to lose, and I said ‘Dang, did I choose the wrong Oregon school,’ and then we came back, and they blew a 21-point lead and that was really fun.”
