Star of the game

Scott Crichton, the Oregon State sophomore defensive lineman from Tacoma, bedeviled the Cougars with all three of OSU's sacks and had another tackle for loss.

Play of the game

Holding a tenuous 6-3 lead in the third quarter, Oregon State sustained a scoring drive against Washington State with a 30-yard Sean Mannion to Jordan Jenkins pass on a defense the Cougars busted, and four plays later, OSU scored the deciding touchdown of the game.

Turning point

OSU already held a 13-6 lead when it put the game away with an 86-yard touchdown drive midway through the fourth quarter.

Key stat

The Cougars had just 227 total yards against a defense that had been surrendering 399 a game.

Injury report

No new apparent WSU injuries. (WSU coach Mike Leach does not discuss injuries.)

He said it

"We were pretty disjointed on offense." — Washington State coach Mike Leach.


Saturday, vs. California, Martin Stadium, 7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks.

By the numbers

3 WSU sacks, giving the Cougars 19 and surpassing last year's total of 17.

4 Cougar interceptions thrown, three by Connor Halliday and one by Jeff Tuel.

20 WSU's total of rushing yards, which will trim its average of 45.6 coming in.

39:15 OSU's overwhelming time of possession, allowing the Beavers an 82-51 edge in plays.
