Oregon State made progress Saturday night in soggy Seattle, but in the end, it wasn’t enough, and Washington whipped the Beavers for the 9th year in a row. The Huskies got a 27-21 win in new Head Coach Jimmy Lake’s coaching debut, and their first game of the season.
For those who like 50’s football, this game was for you. If you eliminate one 42 yard catch and run, Oregon State’s Tristian Gebbia and Washington’s redshirt freshman Dylan Morris, in his mystery first start, combined to throw for 184 yards. The Beavers and Huskies meanwhile combined to run for 434 yards.
If you don’t like Pac-12 officiating, this game was not for you. Oregon State will decry “the spot”, which not only turned the ball over in a 4 point game inside the Washington 5 yard line, earning comments of “egregious” and “horrible” from multiple national journalists. In truth, it was only the most glaring of several ball spotting excursions.
