Recap: Jake Locker Leads Washington To Overtime Win Over OSU, 35-34

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Jermaine Kearse caught the game-winning score in the second overtime that saw Oregon State fall a point short on a failed two-point conversion as Washington took down 24th-ranked Oregon State, 35-34, in a Pac-10 dogfight at Husky Stadium.

In the second overtime on 2nd-and-17, Jake Locker lofted a soft pass down the left side and Kearse caught it in the end zone on a 21-yard score for a 35-28 lead.

Oregon State soon faced a 4th-and-goal at the 3 and Ryan Katz’s pass fell incomplete, but Washington was called for pass interference to give the Beavers a fresh set of downs.

The next play saw Jacquizz Rodgers punch the ball into the end zone and Oregon State called timeout. The team came out of the timeout and lined up for a two- point conversion in an attempt to win the game, but Katz’s pass fell incomplete and Washington grabbed the victory.

Locker went 21-for-35 with 286 yards, five touchdowns and one interception while Kearse finished with nine catches for 146 yards and four scores for the Huskies (3-3, 2-1 Pac-10), who bounced back from last week’s 24-14 loss to Arizona State. Chris Polk had 25 carries for 105 yards in the win.

Rodgers had 140 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries and added four catches for 49 yards and a score for the Beavers (3-3, 2-1), who were coming off wins against Arizona State and Arizona. Katz went 17-for-31 with 206 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the loss.

The Huskies scored the first 21 points of the game to race out to the lead.

The first points of the game came on a 16-yard catch by Kearse from Locker that capped a 10-play, 69-yard drive for a 7-0 lead with 4 1/2 minutes to play in the first.

On the first play of the second quarter, Locker tossed a four-yard score to D’Andre Goodwin to finish a six-play drive that covered 41 yards for a 14-0 advantage.

After forcing another Oregon State punt, Locker took his team 91 yards in just six plays and made it a 21-0 game on a 45-yard pass to Kearse with just over 10 minutes left till halftime.

The Beavers, though, answered with 21 straight points of their own to even the contest.

Following Kearse’s second score of the game, Oregon State went on a nine-play, 62-yard drive that saw the team reach the end zone on a five-yard run from Katz with just over six minutes to play until the half.

Jordan Poyer picked off a Locker pass on Washington’s next touch. Five plays later, Rodgers took the ball in from six yards out to make it a 21-14 game going into the break.

The Beavers opened up the second half with the ball and used the drive to tie the game as the seven-play, 76-yard march was finished with a four-yard scamper into the end zone by Rodgers to make it a 21-21 game.

The score remained that way and forced overtime with Katz tossing a 10-yard score to Rodgers at the right side and Locker countering with a 17-yard throw over the middle to Kearse.

Washington Huskies Final Injury Report

Ted Miller also had the injury report for tonight’s Washington-Oregon State game at Husky Stadium in Seattle. Among the players listed, three are out and a multitude of others are battling nagging injuries.

QB Jake Locker, thigh, probable
WR Devin Aguilar, hip, doubtful
RB Johri Fogerson, hip, doubtful
DT Cameron Elisara, stinger, probable
OG Erik Kohler, illness, out
TE Chris Izbicki, back, probable

Locker has been dealing with a thigh bruise that kept him out of practice early in the week. He did return to practice Wednesday and looks ready to go for tonight’s game. One of his weapons, Devin Aguilar, missed last week’s game and looks like he’ll be out again with a hip pointer.

The offense line will again be shuffled with Kohler out while recovering for an illness.

Washington and Oregon State kick it off tonight at 7:15 on ESPN.


Jake Locker Dealing With Thigh Bruise

Besides dealing with a cold that left him gasping for air last Saturday against the Arizona State Sun Devils, Washington quarterback Jake Locker is also receiving treatment from a thigh bruise that inhibits his mobility. With Locker's legs one of the biggest weapons in the Husky offense, Locker sat out during team drills yesterday in an effort to recovery from both the cold and thigh bruise.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta says Locker is optimistic about the injury and his chances of starting this Saturday.

As Condotta says, Locker had the same injury last year, suffering a thigh bruise at the hands of Oregon. The injury severely limited his mobility and forced Husky head coach Steve Sarkisian to change the game-plan because of it.

Though he will likely play, it remains to be seen whether Sarkisian will have to limit Locker's running against Oregon State this week.

We'll know more on Locker and his participation in practice later today.


James Rodgers Out For The Season

Oregon State receiver James Rodgers is out for the season after suffering a knee injury in Saturday's game against the Arizona Wildcats. Rodgers was already ruled out for Saturday's game against the Huskies, but will miss the rest of the season as well.

The Oregonian's Lindsay Schnell tweeted the news.

It's official: James Rodgers done for the year. Devastating loss for Oregon State. More details to come as we get them.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®


It's been a rough year for the talented wide receiver. Against Boise State, Rodgers took a vicious blow to the head from Bronco linebacker Will Venable, knocking him out cold and leaving him with a concussion. After returning to the field, he came down awkwardly in the end zone and injured his left knee in gruesome fashion.

Rodgers will be eligible for a medical redshirt should he choose to return to school. He will already have a degree and may declare for the NFL draft instead of returning, however.

UW takes on OSU without the services of James, but with the services of Jacquizz Rodgers this Saturday at Husky Stadium.
