On the weekly Pac-12 coaches teleconference, Oregon State's Mike Riley said it's tough to prepare for Colorado because the Buffs haven't played many games.
"It is a little strange in that there's not really that much information at this time of the year on them," Riley said. "I know we'll see some new stuff. That's probably (the difficulty), the mystery of what they've done since they played their two earlier games."
OSU running back Storm Woods (concussion) could miss Saturday's game. "He's got a chance to be cleared by the weekend, but I don't know if I'll play him this week," Riley said. Woods had 940 yards last year and has 152 yards this season. ... MacIntyre said running back Christian Powell (hamstring) has looked good in practice this week. "He has looked that way in practice before," he said. "Hopefully in the games he doesn't get it dinged up. We rested him for a couple of days just to make sure, but hopefully it will not get dinged up again."
