James Rodgers should play at Arizona

10/4/2010

Oregon State was able to beat Arizona State at home without James Rodgers. Will his return from a concussion be enough for the Beavers to record an upset at No. 9 Arizona on Saturday?

Rodgers, one of the nation's most dangerous and versatile offensive players, is expected to play against the Wildcats, but linebacker Dwight Roberson -- the Beavers' leading tackler through three games -- is questionable with a knee injury.

Cliff Kirkpatrick points out an interesting factoid: Notice anything about this list? The Beavers have already played against the nation's No. 1 and No. 3 defenses in Boise State and TCU. Guess who ranks No. 2?

That opposition might explain why the Beavers offensive numbers aren't terribly impressive.
