Oregon State vs. Arizona: No Malcolm Agnew?

Malcolm Agnew and the Oregon State Beavers will try to avoid a winless season when Nick Foles and the Arizona Wildcats come to town.

The Oregon St. Beavers could be without their slated starting running back  Malcolm Agnew again for a crucial home tilt. It's time to pass, pass, pass in Corvallis!

John Hunt of the Oregonian has the story.

Agnew, who missed the Wisconsin and UCLA games with a hamstring injury before appearing close to a return last week, had his hamstring act up on him last Thursday and missed his third consecutive game.

"I wouldn’t put him up better than questionable for the game,’’ Riley said of Agnew’s availability.

Terron Ward is looking like he could be a potential replacement--in his limited carries he did manage six yards per catch. However, it's clear that Mike Riley doesn't really trust any of the running backs. Oregon State attempted 14 rushes and passed the ball 66 times in Tempe. And it's not as if Sean Mannion is lighting the world on fire with his passing ability--the man threw an almost-interception on half his throws.

Be prepared for Mannion and Nick Foles to engage in a six hour football game that involves 120 passes and probably twenty to thirty punts.
