Oregon State gets treated to a post-scrimmage Slip 'N Slide (Video)

Oregon State used some creativity to help its players cool off after a scrimmage on a hot Saturday afternoon in Corvallis.

Instead of offering the standard Gatorade, a giant white tarp covered in water was put on the field at Reser Stadium, creating an enormous Slip 'n Slide. By the looks of this video, the players – some still in full uniform – had a great time.

I don’t know how he got so lucky, but senior defensive end Dylan Wynn received the honor of manning the giant hose that allowed him to spray his teammates.

The Beavers, who are coming off a 7-6 season, open up at home against Portland State on August 30.
