Turning to the College Gridiron…
Oregon is still firmly ranked number two in the AP College Football polls after a 38-31 victory over Washington State Saturday night in Pullman. Marcus Mariota threw for 329 yards and five touchdowns in the eighth straight victory for the Ducks over the Cougars. The Ducks have this weekend off.
In Corvallis, San Diego State jumped to a 7-nothing lead, but the Beavers quickly bounced back and downed the Aztecs 28-7. Sean Mannion became the highest career passer for Oregon State, surpassing Derek Anderson with 275 yards on the night giving him a total of 11,339 career yards. That also puts him third on the all-time Pac-12 passing list. The Beavers open the conference schedule at USC Saturday.
