Oregon State vs. TCU
Oregon State throws an inexperienced quarterback into the fire against an aggressive TCU defense in Week 1.
Oregon State offense vs. TCU defense
• New Oregon State quarterback Ryan Katz gets a tough draw for his first collegiate start against an aggressive Horned Frogs defense. Katz saw mop-up action in four games last season and is a good athlete who brings more mobility to the position then Oregon State is used to. However, his inexperience is concerning and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf will need to rely on his veteran offensive line and a ground game led by pint-sized RB Jacquizz Rodgers.
