PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) – Sean Mannion threw for 493 yards and four touchdowns as Oregon State University beat Washington State University 52-24 on Saturday night.
OSU (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) won its fifth game in a row since a shocking opening loss to FCS Eastern Washington.
The home loss dealt a blow to WSU’s (4-3, 2-2) hopes of reaching a bowl for the first time since 2003.
WSU led 24-17 late in the third quarter when the Beavers erupted for three quick touchdowns to take control of the game.
WSU quarterback Connor Halliday completed 26 of 49 passes for 248 yards as the Beavers were able to shut down the Cougar’s potent pass attack. He was intercepted three times.
