Oregon State vs. ASU: Penalties & Turnovers Doom Beavers To 35-20 Defeat

The Oregon St. Beavers are still winless on the season. And their prospects of going winless on the season are higher than ever.

The Beavers defense created most of the points for their offense in their loss to the Arizona St. Sun Devils.  In fact, all 20 of Oregon State's points came off of Arizona State turnovers. Brock Osweiler threw two interceptions early to Jordan Poyer and fumbled the ball early to provide Oregon State with three scoring drives and 13 points. OSU needed to drive a total of 68 yards to score 13 points. Oregon State's defense was pretty impressive against Arizona State, as they only allowed one third down conversion while sacking Osweiler four times.

Unfortunately for Mike Riley's Beavers, they got penalized. A lot. Oregon State had 139 penalty yards, some of which made ASU drives all the easier to traverse. The Beavers also coughed the ball up five times, offsetting the four turnovers ASU produced. ASU couldn't capitalize off those turnovers, but they stalled Beaver drives late.

OSU quarterback Sean Mannion ended up throwing an incredible 66 passes and managed 40 completions (the Beavers had virtually no run game to speak of, piling up 47 rushing yards), but many of the completions could've been interceptions. I've never seen a football game where a quarterback threw 25 pickable balls until tonight. Mannion still managed four interceptions, three in the fourth quarter when trying to rally his team back.

Oregon State is running out of winnable games on their schedule before the heavy-hitters come their way. The Beavers will play Arizona next week at home, but after that things get hard, fast.

OSU vs. ASU Score Update: Sun Devils Rally Over Beavers To 21-13 Halftime Lead

For one quarter, it looked as if Mike Riley and the Oregon St. Beavers were back to their old tricks. They took advantage of an early ASU mistake when Jordan Poyer picked off a Brock Osweiler throw on ASU's first drive. This set up

But this isn't every year for Oregon State. Young Beavers QB Sean Mannion went to Jordan Bishop twice and Markus Wheaton once to set up a Trevor Romaine 34 yard field goal. Osweiler fumbled the ball on the next drive to set up a Romaine 21 yard field goal and put OSU up 6-0. Poyer then picked of Osweiler again to set up another crucial Beaver scoring drive, capped off by Terron Ward scoring his first career Beaver touchdown to give Oregon State a 13-0 lead.

But then back came Arizona State, scoring immediately when Osweiler found A.J. Pickens for a 17 yard touchdown grab. Then Poyner fumbled a punt at midfield to set up ASU's offense for another Osweiler touchdown throw, this one finding Gerrell Robinson for 24 yards and giving the Sun Devils their first lead of the game. And Jamal Miles capped off the first half scoring with a 78 yard punt return.

Mannion is playing better, especially considering that he's had to throw nearly the entire game. He's thrown for 230 yards, but it's taken him 37 attempts to get to that number.

Oregon State vs. Arizona State: TV Coverage, Online Stream, Radio And More

The Oregon State Beavers are still looking for their first victory of the 2011 season and they will not catch any breaks this weekend in Tempe as they face the nationally ranked Arizona State Sun Devils. While an upset may seem unlikely, the Sun Devils have been a team known to fall asleep for stretches of time during a game. Perhaps if the Beavers can catch a few breaks early they can put a scare into Brock Osweiler and Dennis Erickson.

Here is everything you will need for game day coverage:

Kickoff: 10:30 EDT / 7:30 PST

Last Meeting: Oregon State 31 - Arizona State 28; 2010

TV Coverage: Fox Sports Net Arizona, Fox College Sports.

Radio: Beaver Radio Network, Sirius Channel 92, XM Radio Channel 192. 

Online Stream: There are no nationally carriers covering this game via online stream.

The crowd will likely be a big one on Saturday night and the Beavers will need to avoid mental mistakes if they hope to come away with a victory. This will likely be a very tough game for OSU and an 0-4 start to the season is pretty likely at this point.


Oregon State Vs Arizona State Injury Update: Malcolm Agnew Will Not Play

When the Oregon State Beavers travel to Tempe this weekend to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils, they'll have to do so without the services of running back Malcolm Agnew. The freshman back, looking to fill the shoes of now-Atlanta Falcon Jaquizz Rodgers, has missed the last two games with a sore right hamstring and he'll have to miss at least one more this weekend. 

Agnew got off to a quick start to the season as he rushed for 223 yards against Sacramento State in the opener. He pulled his hamstring in practice three days later. Things were looking good for him this week and he was cleared to play. He practiced Monday through Thursday, but he felt a twinge in his hamstring in practice on Thursday and took himself out. It was not improved on Friday and he's been declared out for Saturday. 

Other injuries for the Beavers, per Oregon Live: "CB Sean Martin (foot) has been in a boot this week and is very doubtful. OG Grant Enger (shoulder), who replaced Josh Andrews (knee), made the trip. DT Castro Masaniai (suspension) returns, and S Josh LaGrone (knee) may play after coming out of retirement."


Oregon State vs. Arizona State: OL Michael Philipp Out For Year With Knee Injury

The Oregon State Beavers will be without one of their top offensive lineman for the rest of the season after Michael Philipp underwent knee surgery this week, leaving him sidelined for the remainder of the 2011 season.

Philipp had a clean up procedure that went very well according to head coach Mike Riley, so much so that he was back on the sideline the next day on crutches to be there in support of his team. Philipps should be able to take part in practices once again later this fall as the surgery was more of a cleanup procedure than something reconstructive, though he has decided to red shirt the rest of the year and come back full-force in 2012.

“It was good he did it,” Riley said. "It cleaned some stuff up, and hopefully, it will ease his pain, and he will be ready to practice later this year, and for spring ball.

The 6’4" Junior out of San Bernardino Valley, California will have one more season with the Beavers next year, hopefully he’ll be back better than he was before.
