No longer is Oregon State going to be somewhat drab, compared to other teams in college football at least. With the help of Nike, the Beavers have a bold new look with a redesigned mascot, and all of their sports teams will have a look that is a huge departure from what it had worn. Orange, black and white is about the only similarity.
Why did Oregon State overhaul its look? That's easy.
This rebranding is about 3 things. 1. Recruiting 2. Recruiting 3. Recruiting.Talking to you Class of 2014! #GoBeavs

When your in-state rival is Oregon, you can't afford to be boring. And the Beavers' new look certainly isn't. It might take some time to get used to, but it seems like a big improvement. Here are some other pics from Oregon State's Facebook pages (be sure to notice the Bane-style face masks):
