The play he broke the record meant something, too.
It was a 27-yard pass to Hunter Jarmon, where Sean Mannion came under pressure but still hit his target.
Later on the drive, the Beavs took a 21-7 lead on a Storm Woods run that gave the Beavs some breathing room and effectively settled the issue.
Mannion finished the game with 275 passing yards, but did not have a TD toss.
Next up for Mannion is the all-time Pac-10/12 mark.
Mannion has 11,339 career passing yards, now 935 yards behind and nipping on the heels of USC's Matt Barkley, ((12,274 career passing yards after a correction by the Pac-12 on Monday).
Mannion threw for a Pac-12 record 4,662 yards in 2013. He had 37 passing touchdowns and completed over 66 percent of his throws.
The senior is also being tabbed as a QB who could go on the first day of the NFL draft.
Oregon State's Mannion stands alone
