The Broncos led 32-20 at the half.
Oregon State (6-3, 1) had the better of the first two quarters, but the Broncos went into halftime leading 31-23.
The Ducks were forced to punt late in the half, but Oregon State recovered to make things 35-34 at halftime.
Oregon quarterback Brandon Peters, who completed 18 of 27 passes for 242 yards, threw for five touchdowns.
He was intercepted once by linebacker Nate Evans and recovered at the Oregon 5.
The two teams have met three times since 2010, but this will be the first meeting in which both teams play on the same field since Boise State’s 2011 win over the Ducks.
The game was played on the Broncos’ home field of Ketchum Stadium.
