Beavers Bounce the Cougars; A Tale of Two Quarterbacks


Beaver Basketball Wins at Home

Five players scored in double figures as Oregon State ran past Southern Illinois University Edwardsville 101-81 last night in Corvallis.

Devon (duh-VONN) Collier led the Beavers with 20 points; Angus Brandt had 19 and Oregon State shot 64-percent from the field.

A Tale of two quarterbacks

Oregon State’s Sean Mannion and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota are two strikingly different quarterbacks who have both seen their seasons take a frustrating downturn.

The two will play with mostly pride on the line… and perhaps a measure of redemption… when the number 12 Ducks host the Beavers in the annual Civil War Friday afternoon.

Mariota, who took a hard hit to the head in last weekend’s 42-16 loss to Arizona, says he has passed all of the concussion tests and will play.  But there are still lingering questions about the condition of his left knee.

Mannion’s issues, meanwhile, seem to be confidence after throwing ten interceptions in Oregon State’s last three games.
