Oregon State certainly isn't shy about scheduling.

It appears the Beavers are about to sign a game contract to open next season against TCU on Sept. 4 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

So Oregon State will be breaking in a new starting quarterback in front of 80,000 hostile fans in the most sparkling -- distractingly so -- venue in football.

The Beavers will be dropping Eastern Washington to add the Horned Frogs, who are presently unbeaten and headed to a Fiesta Bowl date with Boise State.

Did someone say Boise State?

Oregon State visits Boise State on Sept. 25, the week after playing Louisville. The Broncos are 71-2 playing on the blue turf since the 1999 season.

Trivia question of the blog post: Which other team -- or teams! -- in the nation will play two opponents presently ranked in the top 6 of the BCS standings as part of their nonconference schedule in 2010?

In a matter that may or may not be unrelated, Oregon State went 11-1 in 2000 and finished ranked fourth in the country when its nonconference schedule included Eastern Washington, New Mexico and San Diego State.
