It is only one game into the DJ Uiagalelei era at Oregon State, but things are going great for the Beavers as they are up 28-3 against San Jose State.

After 3 quarters, Uiagalelei has thrown for 17-of-22 passing for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns, while also scoring 2 touchdowns on the ground.

On a 3rd-and-14 midway through the quarter, he made his best throw of the day, hitting Jeremiah Noga for a 31-yard touchdown.

He has looked very accurate and poised the entire day, looking like he has been the quarterback in Corvallis for multiple years.

If you’re a Beavers fan, this is exactly the type of start that you are looking for from the team. The Beavers ended last year with so much momentum after defeating Oregon and then blowing Florida out in the bowl game.

Coach Jonathan Smith has Oregon State trending in the right way, as OSU won 10 games in a season for the first time since 2006. The Pac-12 looks on paper and through Week 1 like this is the best the conference has been in the College Football Playoff era. Can the Beavers raise the bar even further in the 2023 campaign with Uiagalelei behind center?
