It's come down to beating the Beavs to have a shot at a successful season. If UW loses this game, seven wins is the best they'll be able to muster in the regular season after all of the much-hyped "getting over the hump" talk earlier in the year.
This game will go a lot in determining Sark's future at UW - yes, his QB is banged up, but UW has a more talented and experienced squad than OSU and should be able to take out the Beavers in Corvallis for the first time since 2003.

I must confess I have a soft spot for Oregon State after cheering for them every year in the Civil War game. Any hatred I have of the team is geared more toward their stupid ass mascot, Benny the Beaver. Those evil googly eyes haunt my dreams:
There's also the aerodynamic gopher logo they're sporting these days...not that I should cast stones considering the Huskies 2001-2006 logo:
Now that's an angry Beaver.
I much prefer the hip-hop inspired Benny Jr. that graces OSU's recruitment page.
Kris Kross will make Corvallis jump, jump!
And here's Benny the Beaver enjoying his favorite activity:
