Oregon State vs. Washington 2012: Beavers struggle in first loss of season

The Oregon St. Beavers saw their undefeated streak come to an end on Saturday night at the hands of the Washington Huskies. Sean Mannion returned from knee surgery and looked good at times, although he was relatively ineffective in the second half before being pulled for Cody Vaz. The defense was unable to come away with a big stop late, and when it was all said and done, OSU lost for the first time in 2012.

Here is what SB Nation's Oregon State blog, Building The Dam, took away from the game. They weren't too pleased with how any of the units performed in Seattle.

But (Washington) did out-play, out-hit, out-tackle, and really out-coach their formerly unbeaten and 7th ranked neighbors. And when you win the turnover battle 4-1, as the Huskies did, you don't need to out-rush or out-pass you opponent to win. And Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian's game plan on both sides of the ball was great.

Be sure to check out the full article from Building The Dam. There's some great insight from what was a tough loss for the Beavers.

Fortunately for Oregon State, the season is still far from over. They still control their own destiny in the Pac-12 North, although they'd likely have to win the remainder of their games, including a Nov. 24 showdown with Oregon.

Next up on the schedule is Arizona State. The Sun Devils lost at home this weekend to UCLA in the closing seconds, which extended their losing skid to two games.
