Oregon State cruises to 38-21 win over Notre Dame in Insight Bowl:

Notre Dame's "win one for Ty" vow was only a fantasy. Derek Anderson's arm and the leaky Irish secondary made sure of that.

Anderson and Oregon State finished off Notre Dame's dreary season with a 38-21 beating of the Irish on Tuesday night in the Insight Bowl.

Anderson, in his final game for the Beavers, tied an Insight record with four touchdown passes, two to tight end Joe Newton.

The 6-foot, 6-inch quarterback completed 28 of 45 passes for 358 yards with no interceptions against Notre Dame's leaky secondary.

Anderson, the game's offensive MVP, moved ahead of Steve Stenstrom to No. 2 on the Pac-10 career yards passing list with 11,249. Only Carson Palmer (11,818) had more.

No shock here, Oregon St. is a better team. Notre Dame is hot and cold, they'll beat Michigan but lose to BYU. I'm sure Oregon St. wishes they had that extra point against LSU back, it really could of sparked them into having an even better season then they did. However this will be the last time you see Notre Dame get it handed to them like this. Weis will not allow this team to play like this, that's for sure!
