Jonathan Smith passed for 324 yards, including a school-record 97-yard touchdown strike to Chad Johnson, as No. 23-ranked Oregon State beat Stanford, 38-6, on Saturday. Smith also had a 76-yard scoring pass to T.J. Houshmandzadeh as the Beavers (5-1 overall and 2-1 in the Pacific 10 Conference) had 471 yards of offense despite a subpar day from running back Ken Simonton. Stanford (2-4, 1-2) lost its third straight game and likely is out of the running to repeat as Pac-10 champion.

Real life has already surpassed any realistic expectations, so Jonathan Smith today goes for the whole dream. He gets to try to beat UCLA. So great a USC fan while growing up was Smith that when he played at the Coliseum earlier this season with Oregon State, he sneaked a few two-finger victory salutes when the Trojan band played "Conquest," close to the vest to make sure no teammates noticed. Not that he turned down a USC scholarship to become a Beaver.
