Sean Mannion Paces Oregon State To Crucial Victory Over Washington State In Seattle

The Oregon St. Beavers could not be stopped on offense. They rolled over the Washington St. Cougars 44-21 in one of their most dominant efforts of the season, piling on 551 yards of offense, 28 first downs, a two-thirds third down conversion rate, and putting up nearly 8 yards per play.

Sean Mannion racked up 376 passing yards at an impressive 76.5% completion rate, throwing four touchdowns as well. Mannion spread the ball out to eleven receivers, primarily targeting Markus Wheaton (five catches for 100 yards), Brandin Cooks (three catches for 70 yards and a TD), Jordan Jenkins (two catches for 46 yards and a TD), Joe Halahuni (three catches, 41 yards, TD), James Rodgers (four catches, 38 yards) and Terron Ward (four catches, 23 yards). Malcolm Agnew piled on 104 rushing yards and another score as Oregon State totally shredded Washington State's defense. The win keeps OSU's slim hopes alive for a .500 or better winning record.

Jeff Tuel was also playing well against Oregon State's defense before he was forced to leave the game with an injury. Marshall Lobbestael was far less effective, completing only half his passes and throwing a pick as well. Washington State has fallen under .500 for the first time this season.

OSU Vs. WSU Score Update: Jeff Tuel Injury Knocks Him Out, Beavers Increase Lead To 34-21

The Washington St. Cougars don't look like they have much of a chance to win this one against the Oregon St. Beavers, as they've lost their quarterback Jeff Tuel again. Tuel got knocked around by Beaver defenders just before halftime, and he wasn't able to return. Marshall Lobbestael is in for Tuel.

Meanwhile, Sean Mannion has been rolling for OSU. Up ten coming out of the break, Mannion found Markus Wheaton, Terron Ward, James Rodgers, and Joe Halahuni twice, including on the touchdown throw to extend Oregon State's lead to 17. After the Cougars were forced to punt, Oregon State bled out the rest of the third quarter to drive the ball 92 yards in over seven and a half minutes. Trevor Romaine converted on a 25 yard field goal to put OSU up 20.

Washington State did respond immediately with a touchdown drive, with a huge Lobbestael 38 yard connection to Isiah Barton setting up a Carl Winston two yard rush. WSU is still in a deep hole early in the fourth.

OSU Vs. WSU Halftime Score: Beavers Take 24-14 Lead Over Cougars

The Oregon St. Beavers and the Washington St. Cougars don't seem to really think much about defensive stops. There's been only one punt between the two teams as both teams have combined for 38 first half points.

After a 7-7 tie through one quarter, Beavers QB Sean Mannion found Brandin Cooks on a 38 yard gain and then a 12 yard touchdown connection to put Oregon State up 14-7. On the subsequent drive, WSU QB Jeff Tuel connected with Marquess Wilson for 48 yards to set up a short Tuel touchdown rush to tie things up at 14.  Then some Malcolm Agnew and Markus Wheaton rushes for Oregon State set up a Mannion connection to Wheaton for 21 yards (aided by a personal foul penalty), setting up an Agnew touchdown rush. Tuel was then sacked by Scott Crichton, losing the football to Dylan Wynn, which allowed the Beavers to score a field goal to make it 24-14 at halftime.

Oregon State Vs. Washington State Score: Sean Mannion And Jeff Tuel Trade TDs, Tied 7-7

The Washington St. Cougars and the Oregon St. Beavers both had impressive touchdown drives early in the first half of their matchup in Seattle. They have their quarterbacks to thank for most of that play.

After a Washington State drive on a failed 4th and 1 at the OSU 24, the Beavers marched back down the field. Beavers QB Sean Mannion found Markus Wheaton down the right sideline for 37 yards, then Mannion found Jordan Jenkins on a short pass to the left which Jenkins then streaked down the left side for 31 yards and an Oregon State 7-0 lead.

But Mannion gave one back on an interception to WSU defender Damante Horton, and Jeff Tuel struck back. Although he was pinned at his own one yard line, Tuel marched the Cougars 99 yards down the field, getting help from Carl Winston (27 all-purpose yards) and capping it off with a 20 yard throw to Marquess Wilson to tie things up early in the second quarter.

WSU vs. OSU Odds: Cougars Four Point Favorite Heading Into Seattle Game

The Washington State Cougars will be looking for their second conference win of the season over the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night, taking place at CenturyLink Field in Seattle for the Cougs annual Seattle Game. Both teams are coming off of disheartening losses, but will be looking to right the ship on one of the biggest football stages on the West Coast. 

The opening line over at has the Cougs starting as a four point favorite over the Beavers, with an over/under of 110. Bodog, 5 Dimes, SBG Global, Intertops, Bet 365 and Bet Online all list WSU as a three point favorite, while Oddsmaker and Top Bet both have them as a 3.5 favorite. 

This will be a tightly contested matchup this Saturday as both squads will be looking for some redemption from their losses at the hands of Stanford and BYU respectively. This should prove to be a bit of a barn burner offensively between these two, with Jeff Tuel and Sean Mannion looking to open it up downfield and light up the score boards.
