DJ Uiagalelei draws major reaction for impressive Oregon State debut
One of the biggest transfers of the off-season was when former Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei decided to transfer to Oregon State.
After game one, the results look really good as Oregon State defeated San Jose State, 42-17, on Sunday.
Uiagalelei had a very good first game, going 20-of-25 for 239 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also added 2 touchdowns on the ground and had social media buzzing after his performance.
DJ Uiagalelei and the Oregon State offensive line is a match made in heaven.

It was one game, but Uiagalelei and the Beavers looked very good. It wasn’t too long ago when there was a ton of hype on Uiagalelei being one of the best players in all of college football.
After ending last season with 10 wins, the expectations are very high in Corvallis. The Pac-12 is as good as it has been in some time, but if Uiagalelei plays like he did on Sunday, the Beavers have a legitimate chance of winning the entire conference.
Oregon State will be back in action next Saturday, as the Beavers host UC Davis. Kickoff is scheduled for 9:00 pm.
