Oregon Beaver Gameday: UNLV Prediction and Insight

Zach ZarembaCorrespondent ISeptember 12, 2009

A 2-0 start has eluded Mike Riley’s squad since the 2005 campaign.  Coincidentally, the last time the Beavers’ have had a losing season was also in 2005.  Nevertheless, a win at UNLV would keep the slim hopes of an undefeated season alive.

A win would more importantly prove that this year’s team is ready to end the consecutive seasons of slow starts and receive a major bowl bid.

Earlier this week UNLV reported that talented linebacker Jason Beauchamp and wide receiver Rodelin Anthony have been hampered by injuries. These injuries have them both listed as questionable on the latest injury report.  If Beauchamp sits, then Jacquizz Rodgers should have a much easier day. 

Beauchamp weighs in at 230 lbs, and has relatively good speed.  He is one of the top linebackers in mid-major football.  Anthony is a huge target, 6'5" and also weights 230 lbs, and usually lines up at slot receiver. 

Fortunately, the Beavers don’t have many injury concerns.  Darrell Catchings, the team’s projected top pass-catcher, is doubtful and backup running back Ryan McCants is still a few weeks away from recovering from a torn ACL.       

Each team will lean on a few players to make key contributions; this leads us into our “Key Players” section:
