The moment is nearly upon us. The game dubbed the marquee showcase of Saturday's Week 1 schedule is just hours away.
Oregon State University will take on Texas Christian University in Dallas, Texas at Cowboys Stadium, also known as "Jerry World."
As the opening kickoff awaits, analysts have already begun approaching this game from every angle, outlining the strengths and weaknesses of both teams.
Perhaps the story coming out of the dark corner is the anticipated level of play for OSU sophomore quarterback Ryan Katz.
Katz is the successor to New Orleans Saints QB Sean Canfield and has little game experience, let alone in a major college football situation against a top-10 team in a stadium that holds 80,000 screaming fans.
His performance against one of the top defenses in the country could make or break the game—and the Beavers' season momentum.
