Wisconsin and Oregon State have met only once prior, with UW coming away with a 23-20 victory on Oct. 14, 1961 in Madison.

The Beavers, who went 5-7 last season, including a 4-5 mark in the Pac-10, are led by junior quarterback Ryan Katz (2,401 yards and 17 TDs). Senior wide receiver James Rodgers also returns for Oregon State and enters the season with the second-most all-purpose yards for active players in the FBS with an OSU record 5,784.

The match-up will mark the third time in the last five seasons that the Badgers have faced an opponent from the Pac-10. Wisconsin beat Arizona State, 20-19, last season and opened the 2007 season with a 42-21 victory over Washington State.

Six of the Badgers' 12 games in 2011 now have kickoff times.

Sweet.

The Beavers have been exciting early in the last two seasons. They have a superior team than Arizona State which means that the Badgers need to prepare for kickoff returns and pass plays.
