CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Those wondering if Oregon State is the real thing need look no further than to the coaches who have lost to the No. 18 Beavers this season, Wisconsin's Bret Bielema and UCLA's Jim Mora.

Oh, and Arizona's Rich Rodriguez — who'll face the Beavers next — has a few things to say, too.

They all have praise for Oregon State, which won just three games all of last year but has opened this season with two attention-grabbing wins over the then-No. 13 Badgers and the then-No. 19 Bruins.

The victories propelled the Beavers themselves into the AP rankings this week at No. 18.
