A nightmare first half for Beavers

FROM THE MOMENT the ball was kicked off, it was your worst black and orange nightmare come true. Oregon State gave up a big kickoff return to the Huskies and the rout was on. Before the Beavs knew what hit them, they were down 14-0. And things didn't get much better before halftime.

Oregon State trails 27-0 at halftime.

The Beavs went three-and-out on their first two possessions, with the offensive line providing little protection and Sean Mannion under siege.

If the 30-19 ASU last week was one of the lowest points for the Beavs this season, they somehow dug a deeper hole in just 30 minutes against the UW.

Oregon State only twice ventured into UW territory in the first half, with their deepest progress the UW 34-yard line before a penalty sent on the punt team after OSU couldn't convert on third down.

Oregon State was outgained 319-122 in the first half. And 123 of that was passing, with minus-1 rushing yards for OSU.

The Beavs were 2-of-8 on third downs in the first half, while the Huskies were 3-3 on scoring red zone chances.

We'll have more after the game...
