It was less than a week ago that Virginia dismissed Peter Lalich. Now the word is that the West Springfield, Va., native is headed to the Pac-10.

According to, Lalich traveled to Corvallis on Monday to visit the Oregon State campus and to watch the Beavers practice.

Tuesday, the quarterback told Oregon State coach Mike Riley that Oregon State would be his destination.

Lalich started two games this season at Virginia, passing for 357 yards and three interceptions.

He was benched for the Cavaliers' game at Connecticut and later dismissed from the team by athletics director Craig Littlepage.

Lalich had been cited for underage drinking in July and is currently on a one-year probation.

In a court appearance last week, Lalich admitted he consumed alcohol during a court-ordered probation. The judge did not revoke Lalich's probation, which expires in July.

Lalich will start classes on Monday at Oregon State, which operates on a quarter system and is just getting started with the fall session, and is expected to join the team immediately.
