Building The Dam recognized that the Oregon St. Beavers got off to a slow start on Saturday against the California Golden Bears. But that slow start slithered into the realm of the irrelevant once the Beavers' offense got rolling, leading the team to a 62-14 win.
With the Oregon Ducks coming off their first loss of the season and now looking vulnerable after the Stanford Cardinal showed how to slow down their high octane offense, now the Beavers can watch that tape and discern exactly what works against the Ducks from a team that tried it and was successful at it.
Building The Dam was happy to see Sean Mannion back on the field after being injured in the Beavers' game against the Washington St. Cougars. Mannion put up a solid 325 yards on 24-for-34 with four touchdowns and one interception. And all of that was done in the rain.
Going into this weekend, I am sure no one would have guessed the State of Oregon team to score 62 points and 559 total yards would have been OSU.
The Beavers looked more like the Ducks on this day than the Ducks did.
