Huskies upset the Beavers: Grading the game

The Washington Huskies upset No. 7 Oregon State on Saturday.

Joe Nicholson-US PRESSWIRE

The Washington Huskies defeated No. 7 Oregon State, 20-17, on Saturday for their second win against a top-10 team this season. The Huskies defeated then No. 8 Stanford, 17-13, on Sept. 27.

Kirkd of UW Dawg Pound credits the Huskies' secondary for the win and gave them an "A" grade against Oregon State:

... this was also the group that did the most to hold Oregon State to 17 points, coming up with critical interceptions time and time again, and preventing Cody Vaz from finding anyone open on the game-winning defensive series when the Beavers turned over the ball on downs.

Kirkd also gave the special teams unit an "A" grade while giving an "A+" to the coaching staff as they set the tone early with the running attack which helped create enough balance for Washington to score 20 points in the victory.

Bishop Sankey led Washington with 25 carries for 92 and two touchdowns on the ground against the Beavers. Keith Price was 18-of-30 passing for 194 yards and one touchdown and led the Huskies on a 8-play, 63-yard drive to setup the game-winning field goal with 1:20 remaining in the game.

The Washington defense forced a turnover on downs on Oregon State's last possession to secure the win.
