Oregon State upset Loyola 65-58 in the Sweet 16 on Saturday afternoon, which puts the Beavers in rare company.

Oregon State is just the second No. 12-seed to advance to the Elite Eight since 1979, tying a record that was previously held by Missouri.

The Tigers’ 2002 team advanced all the way to the Elite Eight despite being a No. 12 seed. They defeated No. 5-seeded Miami, No. 4-seed Ohio State and No. 8-seeded UCLA before eventually falling to No. 2-seeded Oklahoma.

That path is identical to what Oregon State has accomplished. The Beavers defeated No. 5-seeded Tennessee, No. 4-seeded Oklahoma State and No. 8-seeded Loyola en route to the Elite Eight. They will now face No. 11-seeded Syracuse or No. 2-seeded Houston on Monday.

Against Loyola, it was Oregon State’s zone defense that made the difference. The Beavers held the Ramblers to just 16 first-half points, and were able to hold off a late comeback attempt in the second half.

Oregon State will learn its opponent in the Elite Eight later on Saturday night as Syracuse and Houston battle at 9:55 p.m. ET.
