Conference Rank Change (LW): +2 (12)

Division Rank Change (LW):  +2 (6)

Last Week’s Result: W, 26-7 vs Weber State

As far as freshman quarterbacks go, Seth Collins is no Josh Rosen. Luckily for the Beavers, he didn’t have to play like the National Offensive Player of the Week to beat Weber State. Heck, he didn’t even have to throw for 100 yards (he threw for 92, and ran for 152 more).

It’s pretty likely, however, that a sub-100 yard passing performance isn’t going to cut it this week against Michigan. We’ll see if the Beavers’ new head coach Gary Andersen has anything up his sleeve.
