Corvallis, OR -- On day 12 of Oregon State football fall camp, the Beavers hosted a number of scouts from NFL teams, and referees. OSU defensive coordinator Tim Tibesar, linebacker coach Trent Bray, and defensive lineman Elu Aydon spoke to the media following practice addressing the visitors in black and white stripes.

While the Beavers weren't a heavily penalized team last season, receiving 67 penalties just as many as their opponents. 

Aydon said, "Kind of gives us a look at the real, real life situation you know what I mean. Kind of gives us a base point, where we could work on what we're doing wrong you know. See what we're doing that attracts penalties."

Besides building a reputation with the referees and gathering a better understanding of their call tendencies, OSU also wanted to create an even more game like scenario for their players in their live periods of practice. 

"For them it helps them get ready for the season and stuff like that," said Tibesar. Just like our players are, but it helps them in practice when the season when the flags come out because when they're not out here guys get away with grabbing and holding on both sides of the ball and that type of thing forces the guys to play more honest like they have to on gameday."

Oregon State will host Oklahoma State in week one on August 30th, at 7:30 p.m. in Reser Stadium.
