Share Share Washingtons fast start keeps the Beavers at bay: Oregon State Reactions tweet share Reddit Pocket Flipboard Email Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports Washington got the fast start its wanted all season, jumping out to a 28-3 1st quarter lead. They went to Myles Gaskin early and often who had all the space in the world to operate and Jake Browning was sharp when he threw the ball. No pass was prettier than his over the shoulder ball he dropped right into Aaron Fullers arms, who used some nice footwork to keep his feet in the end zone. Oregon States defense provided little resistance in the opening 15 minutes. Washington didnt even have a 3rd down attempt until roughly 3 minutes left in the quarter after they already had touchdowns on their first 4 drives.
The second quarter wasnt as kind to the Huskies as Oregon State won the period 13-7. OSU running back Jermarr Jefferson continued to find yards on the ground and Jake Luton was able to find his targets downfield. Trevon Bradford and Isaiah Hodgins both made big catches. After they cut the lead to 28-10, they ran a drop kick style onside kick, which was recovered and lead to another field goal. Washington eventually killed the half off with a long drive that included some nice running from Sean McGrew. On 3rd and 5 in the red zone, Jake Browning found Myles Gaskin who beat the defense to the corner. The Huskies went into halftime leading 35-16.
Oregon State continued moving the ball well in the 3rd quarter, especially with Jefferson. But, Washingtons defense stiffened up when they needed to and kept Oregon State out of the end zone. Ben Burr-Kirven had a great read and tackle on a screen pass that could have converted a 3rd down. The only points of the quarter, however, came after Washington recovered a muffed punt. One play later, Myles Gaskin waltzed untouched into the end zone.
The fourth quarter was rough for the Huskies as the offense struggled to move the ball and ended with -5 total yards. Jake Haener replacing Browning certainly didnt help, as he took a big sack on 3rd down. The Beavers were able to punch it in one last time after blocking a Washington punt deep in their own territory. Oregon State pulled out all the stops and kept chipping away at Washingtons lead but it wasnt enough as the Huskies improved to 8-3 with a 42-23 victory.
