CORVALLIS – It’s not hard to guess what we’re going to see Saturday – Oregon State and WSU are going to throw the ball. A lot. One whole helluva lot. Sean Mannion leads the nation in passing.

Two-minute drill: Cougs leave it to Beavers

IN THE BLINK of an eye, it went from a game with promise to an orange and black nightmare. On a day dubbed “Shakeup Saturday” around college football, Oregon State not only shook up Pullman, it stunned the Cougars into oblivion in a 52-24 routing in Martin Stadium. The Beavers scored 35 unanswered points in the second half while Cougars turned over the ball on four straight possessions.

Oregon State 101: Which O reigns, WSU or OSU?

THE BEAVERS MAY have gotten the week off to prepare for the Cougs, but WSU got in some quality scrimmage time against the Golden Bears. And from my chair, Oregon State is essentially a better version of Cal. They have a high octane passing offense -- and a weak passing defense.
