Oregon State has lost Markus Wheaton to an injury after the star receiver absorbed a big hit from Washington safety Sean Parker.
Wheaton was down on the field for a few minutes after Parker's hit in the second quarter on Saturday night. Wheaton was looking back to pull in a pass from Sean Mannion when he was hit by Parker, jarring the ball free and into the arms of Justin Glenn for an interception.
Wheaton eventually got to his feet and walked off the field without help, but spent the rest of the first half on the bench with trainers sitting on either side of him. Wheaton returned to the sideline after halftime with his pads off. There was no official word on the injury.
Wheaton entered Saturday averaging 109 yards per game receiving. He had two receptions for 25 yards before the injury.

Sean Mannion is back at quarterback for No. 7 Oregon State with a chance to lead the Beavers somewhere they've never been.
Whether they were the Oregon Agricultural College or now Oregon State, the Beavers have never started a season 7-0. Their chance comes on Saturday night when the Beavers (6-0, 4-0 Pac-12) face Washington, which is trying to avoid just the second four-game...

The Oregon State Beavers are flying very high. The team has its highest BCS ranking since the last poll of the 2000 season. Corvallis has been turned from a town that couldn't sell-out their biggest non-conference game ever on opening day of the season, to, just six weeks later, a town that has thousands of students camped-out over night for tickets to a drab game against Utah...
OREGON STATE WAS out of sorts in the first half. But a strong end to the third quarter had Oregon State right where they needed to be, in a tie game and with momentum on their side. Alas, for Beaver fans, 'Ol Mo shifted one more time and the Beavs lost their first game of the 2012 season.

BEFORE WE GET to the keys, as No. 7 Oregon State looks to make history at Washington on Saturday night, there’s something else to cover. Those of you who correctly predicted that Oregon State would start out the season undefeated and then continue that trend on past the midway point of the season, please form a line over here to the left. Because there are only two ways to categorize you.
And then there was one. Most didn't believe Oregon State or USC could make it to the BCS National Championship game, however, they both just kept...
Beavers Taste Defeat
It finally happened to the Beavers.
It took nearly 2 months, but the Oregon State football team endured its first loss of the season this past weekend, falling to the University of Washington Huskies 20-17.
After posting an impressive win at Brigham Young University, and taking care of business (no matter how ugly) at home against Utah, Oregon State backup quarterback...
FOR THE FIRST TIME in 2012, Oregon State fell. It was a game characterized by big plays on offense and defense – more for the Huskies than the Beavs. Oregon State struggled at Century Link, suffering a loss that can be attributed to any number of things – a wet ball, a wet field, Sean Mannion’s four interceptions, questionable penalties or sloppy defense on behalf of OSU –...

Oregon State coach Mike Riley has decided to go with junior Cody Vaz as his starter for Saturday's game against Arizona State.
Vaz had started two games for the No. 13 Beavers while starter Sean Mannion recovered from arthroscopic knee surgery. Mannion returned last Saturday to start against Washington, but threw four interceptions before Vaz replaced him in a 20-17 loss.
Saturday was not kind to some of the top ranked teams in the country. Oregon State, a surprise undefeated team at 6-0, found themselves in a dogfight in Seattle with the Washington Huskies.
In this case, the dogs beat the beavers, as the Huskies pulled off the upset win on a damp night at CenturyLink Field, 20-17.
For Washington (4-4, 2-3 Pac-12 North), this was their fifth game...
