Beavers fall late to Rainbow Warriors 31-28

Oregon State drops to 0-2 in 2019.

Honolulu, HI. -- It felt all too similar to the last Mountain West road game Oregon State played. In 2018, they lost to Nevada after allowing the Wolfpack to claw back into the game and take the win in Reno. In 2019, it was a familiar story in Honolulu, as the Beaver offense was shut out in the second half. 

Senior quarterback Jake Luton, who had a solid showing in the first half, in which the Beavers led 28-21, was stymied in the second, finishing his day 15/32 passing for a mere 169 yards and 1 touchdown. Conversely, his countpart for Hawaii, Cole MacDonald, shredded the OSU secondary to the tune of 421 yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception. Wide receiver Jojo Ward was the recipient of all of those TD throws, ending his night with a 10 reception, 189 yard line to go along with them.

Oregon State entered the half 28-21, following a combination of throwing and great runs from Jermar Jefferson and Artavis Pierce, but seemed to be figured out from the midway point of the 3rd quarter onward. The Beaver defense tightened up, but the offense couldn't punish the Rainbow Warriors for their two turnovers. 

OSU had a chance to tie the game with around 30 seconds left in regulation, but kicker Jordan Choukair missed the 52 yarder that would've potentially pushed the game into overtime. 

Pierce finished with 7 carries, 79 yards and 2 touchdowns while Jefferson ended his day with 31 carries for 183 yards and 1 touchdown. The Beavers will look to regroup against Cal Poly next week at home.
