PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — College football gets underway this weekend, and around here it’s two season openers rolled into one.

The Oregon State University Beavers host the Portland State University Vikings at 1 p.m. Saturday in Corvallis.

Last year, the Vikings almost beat Pac-12 power California. They’ve also played Washington, Arizona State and TCU under head coach Nigel Burton.
Vikings star tailback Shaquille Richard wants the football in his hands. “I’m just looking to make big plays,” he said.

Coach Burton said, “We’re excited for the season,” and said the team will be ready “when the lights come on.”
