"Great effort to try to fight back at the end there," said Oregon State coach Wayne Tinkle, who said he gathered the team together with about eight minutes left to try and inspire a comeback.
"Good first win. A lot of good things, some not so good things," OSU coach Wayne Tinkle said. "But we knew how scrappy CSUN is. Obviously some big games in front of us, so I was pleased to see our guys answer the call."
