The Oregon State Beavers have a history of pulling off unlikely upsets at home in the past decade.

They beat then-No. 3 USC in 2006 and the top-ranked Trojans in 2008. Even last season, they downed No. 13 Wisconsin at Reser Stadium.

The Beavers are hoping for some of that Reser mojo on Saturday night when they host No. 8 Stanford.

If any team is poised for an upset, it's Oregon State (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12). The team has rebounded from what could have been a season-busting loss in the opener to Eastern Washington.

Stanford (6-1, 4-1) has done its own rebounding, coming back from a 27-21 upset loss at Utah to a 24-10 victory at home over then-No. 9 UCLA.
