Up next: Scoop and Score & Scoop and Score 2: Going 70

Who and against whom: Oregon State cornerback Rashaad Reynolds was a play-making machine in the Beavers' 38-23 win over Boise State in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.

The numbers: Reynolds returned two fumbles for touchdowns (3 and 70 yards), recorded 10 tackles and broke up a pass in the bowl victory.

A closer look: Oregon State arrived in Hawaii riding a dispiriting five-game losing streak, which came after a 6-1 start. It needed something good to happen, and Reynolds provided that with a pair of first-half scoop and scores, which gave the Beavers a strong early boost of positive momentum. His first fumble recovery came about 12 minutes into the game when defensive end Scott Crichton stripped Boise State quarterback Grant Hedrick in the end zone. The ball popped forward and Reynolds grabbed it for the easy score, which gave the Beavers a 17-3 lead. The second fumble return came in the second quarter. Boise State wide receiver Troy Ware caught a 6-yard pass near the sideline, but Larry Scott punched the ball out for Oregon State. Reynolds grabbed the fumble and galloped 70 yards for a 24-6 lead. This performance earned Reynolds game MVP honors.
