Defensive Grades + MVP's: Washington

Who led the way for the Oregon State defense? Time to take a look at the defensive points and grades from the Washington game.

Senior linebacker and captain Caleb Saulo earned his first Giant Killer Award of the season in the Beavers 41-17 loss to Washington in Seattle.  It was a homecoming game of sorts for Saulo, who grew up in nearby Kent, Washington and was not offered by the hometown Huskies.  Saulo finished the game with eight tackles, including a sack.  Fellow linebackers Bright Ugwoegbu and Jonathan Willis were active all game too adding nine tackles and a blocked punt by Willis.

Cornerback Xavier Crawford earned his third MVP award this season, although it could be considered a shared award.  Crawford was helped in the scoring by forcing a fumble and having a pass break-up (near interception).  Teammates Treston Decoud added seven tackles in the game and Devin Chappell was only a half a point behind Crawford with six tackles and a pass break-up.

For the defensive line, Elu Aydon led the way with four tackles. Kalani Vakameilalo and Sumner Houston each added two tackles in the Beavers effort.
