Oregon State vs. Arizona update: Beavers attacking Wildcats in the air, up 17-7 at half

Oregon State knows that Arizona is down. Last weekend, the Wildcats were pummeled by another Oregon team 49-0. Looking to captialize upon that beat-down, OSU has attacked 'Zona where they seem to be most vulnerable - in the air. On the back of quarterback Sean Mannion and his 278 yards passing, the Beavers are up on the Wildcats 17-7 at the half.

Normally a double threat, 'Zona quarterback Matt Scott has been held to negative-three yards rushing. He is second on the team in carries behind running back Ka'Deem Carey with 53 yards.

Markus Wheaton has proven to be one of Mannion's favorite targets. By halftime, Wheaton had amassed 103 yards receiving on seven carries. The duo have hooked up for one touchdown so far. The rest of the receiving core is in double digit yards.

Wheaton, Mannion and the rest of the offense are taking advantage of the weak downfield coverage presented by Arizona. They should be expecting some changes to that group from 'Zona head coach Rick Rodriguez.
