CORVALLIS, Ore. — Oregon St. was hoping to get in its season opener against Nicholls St., but that won’t be happening this weekend. OSU announced on Thursday that Saturday’s contest has been postponed, with no future date announced. Nicholls St. is located in Thibodaux, LA, an area hit hard by Hurricane Isaac earlier this week.
The Colonels were originally scheduled to fly into Oregon on Friday for a noon kickoff on Saturday. No make-up date has been announced for this match-up as both Oregon St. and Nicholls St. have different bye weeks. Oregon St. officials have discussed the idea of making up the game after the Civil War. The Beavers will now open their season on September 8th against the University of Wisconsin.
