Beavers pound Washington

Sean Canfield threw four touchdown passes and the Beaver defense harrassed Washington quarterback Jake Locker all game long, rolling to a dominant 48-21 Pac-10 victory in front of 45,274 at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Oregon on Saturday.

Oregon State got on the board early. After a Johnny Hekker punt pinned the Huskies back at their 10, Keaton Kristick intercepted a pass to give the Beavers the ball at the Husky 17. James Rodgers ran the fly sweep to the 3, then Canfield passed to Joe Halahuni for the first TD of the day. Justin Kahut kicked the PAT, putting the Beavers up 7-0 4:35 into the game. Kahut thumped through a 44 yard field goal with 3:45 left, giving Oregon State a 10-0 lead after one.

Kahut's second 44 yard field goal of the game put the Beavers up 13-0 2:30 into the second, then, after sacking Locker twice on Washington's next possession, Oregon State took over at their own 30. Jacquizz Rodgers bolted 42 yards to the Husky 29 on the first play, which put him over the 1,000 yard rushing mark for the season. Canfield threw to Jordan Bishop at the 5, Jacquizz ran to the 1, then, after a penalty moved the ball back to the 6, Canfield threw over the middle to James Rodgers for a 6 yard touchdown. Kahut converted with 8:00 left and the Beaver lead was 20-0. The Huskies finally scored on a 4 yard touchdown pass from Locker to Jermaine Kearse. Eric Folk kicked the PAT, making it the score 20-7 Oregon State 2:45 before halftime. The Beavers would regain the 20 point lead in the final minute. Canfield rolled left and found James Rodgers just across the goal line from 10 yards out with 30 seconds left in the half, capping a 10 play, 70 yard drive. Kahut kicked the PAT and Oregon State went to the locker room with a 27-7 halftime lead.

The Beavers added two more touchdowns by Jacquizz Rodgers in the third quarter. The first was set up by his brother James, who ran the opening kickoff back 84 yards to the Washington 1, setting up a 1 yard scoring run on second down with just 45 seconds gone in the quarter then, with 7:45 left, Quizz spun off and carried tacklers on an 8 yard scoring run. Kahut kicked the PAT both times, giving Oregon State a 41-7 lead.

In the fourth quarter, after recovering a Canfield fumble, Locker found Kearse for a 3 yard touchdown. Folk kicked the PAT with 9:34 remaining in the game, the Huskies were down 41-14. Quizz went 44 yards on a direct snap out of the "Wild Beaver" formation down to the Washington 5. Halahuni caught a 5 yard touchdown pass from Canfield, Kahut kicked the PAT and Oregon State led 48-14. The Huskies finished the scoring with 62 second left, as Locket hit Kovario Middleton with a 26 yard touchdown pass. Folk's PAT made the final score 48-21 in favor of the Beavers.
