Oregon State vs. BYU Score Update: Beavers Turn Ball Over Often, Trail 24-14 Heading Into Fourth Quarter

The Oregon State Beavers and BYU Cougars were tied 14-14 at halftime, but turnovers in the third quarter have placed the Beavers at a disadvantage heading into the game's final period. The Beavers find themselves down by three points, 24-21, with one quarter left to play.

The Cougars received the second half kickoff and used a seven-play drive to pull ahead. Quarterback Riley Nelson connected with Cody Hoffman on a 12-yard pass to give BYU a 21-14 advantage in the early stage of the third quarter.

Quarterback Sean Mannion struggled when the Beavers got the ball back, throwing an interception on the Beavers' fourth play from scrimmage. The Cougars couldn't convert on the error as kicker Justin Sorensen missed a 53-yard field goal just a few plays later.

Oregon State didn't help its cause much over the next few plays. The Beavers fumbled the ball away twice (once on a Malcolm Agnew carry, once on a Colby Prince reception), giving the Cougars ample time with the ball and somehow concluding in only one field goal (a 33-yard field goal by Justin Sorensen) to make the score 24-14.

The Beavers didn't let the quarter get away from them and responded with a 59-yard touchdown pass from Mannion to Brandin Cooks, cutting the lead to 24-21. The Cougars now have the ball and begin the fourth quarter on Oregon State's 41-yard line.
