The Washington State Cougars host the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night with both teams looking to notch their fifth win of the season. The Cougs have won two of their first three Pac-12 games are are 4-2 for the first time since 2006, the only time in the previous 10 seasons the program didn't finish with a losing record.
Oregon State got off to a disappointing start to the season, as has been typical in the Mike Riley era. Even in that opening loss to Eastern Washington, the Beaver offense was racking up yards and points. Sean Mannion and company have continued to do so in four wins since, overcoming an Oregon State defense that is allowing over eight yards per pass.
Both secondaries will be put to the test in Martin Stadium on Saturday. The Cougars and Beavers could very well combine for over 100 passes, and the total game time will likely be near four hours.
