What They're Saying: Oregon State

THE BEAVER DEFENSE had its problems as Cal racked up a season-high 269 yards on the ground. The Beaver offense, meanwhile, at best at this point, is simply erratic. Those were some of the scribes' takeaways after Oregon State's comeback bid against Cal vanished quickly in the fourth quarter.

The fourth-quarter letdown following the temporary rally did not just spoil Mannion's record-breaking night. It put a major dent in OSU's rapidly sinking season.

The Golden Bears generated 546 yards on 94 plays, converting 11-of-19 on third down.

Two quarters were all (Cal RB Daniel Lasco) needed to best his previous career high of 123 yards.
-Connor Letourneau, Oregonian

The Golden Bears aren’t going bowling yet, but they got a heck of a lot closer with a critical 45-31 road win over Oregon State.

For now ... the OSU offense is still erratic. Even against the worst defense in the Pac-12.

OSU's defense didn't allow Goff to find any passing rhythm early, but Lasco provided an answer with 127 first-half rushing yards and touchdowns of 14 and 21 yards.

The Cal offensive line opened up holes for Lasco but couldn’t provide Goff with enough time to get into any kind of rhythm.

Sean Mannion did not want to talk about setting the record after the loss.
-Kevin Hampton, Corvallis Gazette-Times

After one quarter, running back Daniel Lasco led the way for Cal with 50 rushing yards on seven carries.
