The Oregon State Beavers have finalized their 2012 non-conference football schedule, OSU Director of Athletics Bob De Carolis announced today.
Oregon State will open the 2012 season at home on September 1 against the Nicholls State Colonels, a member of the Southland Conference in the FCS.
On September 8, OSU welcomes the Wisconsin Badgers to Corvallis. The two schools’ only meeting was in 1961, a 23-20 win for the Badgers in Madison.
The Beavers final non-conference game is October 13 at BYU. Oregon State was originally scheduled to open the season at BYU, but the game was rescheduled.
Oregon State and BYU have played a total of nine times since 1955. The Beavers lead the overall series 5-4. In their last meeting, BYU won 44-20 in the 2009 Las Vegas Bowl.
In Pac-12 games, Oregon State will host Arizona State, California, Oregon, Utah and Washington State and will travel to Arizona, Stanford, UCLA and Washington.
