Oregon State Beavers
Sean Mannion threw for 493 yards and four touchdowns for Oregon State (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12), which won its fifth game in a row since a shocking opening loss to FCS Eastern Washington.
Last year, Oregon St. held WSU to 207 yards passing, intercepted four passes and won 19-6. The Beavers forced Halliday to the bench after he went 9-for-20 passing for 81 yards and three picks. Both teams have changed, of course, so it remains to be seen how much can be gathered from last year’s contest.
According to a new report from Business Insider, Oregon State University is considered the 17th most underrated college in America.
The Beavers were able to muster one Wednesday night against Washington after it looked like it might get away from them again. Oregon State watched a 20-point first-half lead shrink to one with under 11 minutes to play but held on for a 74-66 win.
The Huskies took advantage of four interceptions from Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion in a 20-17 upset of the seventh-ranked Beavers on Saturday night.
Washington’s offensive line has been decimated by injuries and quarterback Keith Price continued to struggle last week at Arizona when he committed three turnovers, raising his total to 10 over the past three games.
The amiable Oregon State Beavers coach Mike Riley has led his team to a 3-0 start and the No. 14 spot in the AP rankings. It’s a dramatic turnaround for a team that won only three games last season.
