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.
