College Football

Oregon State’s running game never showed up Saturday evening, but Sean Mannion completed 38 of 55 passes for 367 yards.  The defense got there in time for a pair of interceptions late in the game… one of which resulted in the go-ahead score and the Beavers beat the San Diego State Aztecs 34-30.

The Beavers kick off against Colorado Saturday, Noon in Corvallis.

Oregon had the weekend off… they remain #2 in the national rankings.  The Ducks will host Cal Saturday night.

Just one prep contest on the schedule for tonight… the Siuslaw Volleyball team will host Reedsport for a non-league match beginning at six.
