They were the surprise of the Pac-12 last season. Now the Oregon State Beavers must live up to heightened expectations.
The Beavers were selected to finish fourth in the Pac-12's preseason media poll. It's the highest they've been picked since the 1992-93 season, when they were selected to finish third.
That's quite a leap from last season, when Oregon State was picked to finish dead last.
