Beavers finally score on Petersen, doesn’t matter Dawgs win 42-7

For the 1st time ever, the Oregon State Beavers scored a TD against Chris Petersen, but it would be in the 4th quarter and all to late and the Washington Huskies destroyed the Beavers 42-7. It would be a combination of Dante Pettis and his 3 TDs as well as 115 yards from RB Myles Gaskin.

The rundown

The game was in doubt early as OSU gave it their best effort. But the 2nd half was an utter slaughterhouse The Huskies scored 35 points in the 2nd half to put the Beavers to rest in a half that never saw much competition at all.  Washington’s defense was smothering, holding Oregon State (1-4, 0-2) to 184 yards and eight first downs. The Beavers didn’t cross Washington’s 45 until the final six minutes.

I would run 500 Myles

Myles Gaskin would continue his success from last week at Colorado with another away game explosion of yards with 115 down in Corvallis.  We would see Lavon Coleman get 9 carries for 70 yards and Savaon Ahmed contribute too; but, it would be Gaskin’s 4th quarter TD put the cherry on the desert this Saturday evening.

Dante’s inferno

Dante Pettis needs to be considered for the Heisman award. Today, yet again set Pettis aside from the rest of the nation. With 3 touchdowns today, Dante Pettis elevates himself above all the other stars in the NCAA. Dante is just 1 TD shy of Gaskin with 6 TDs.  And keep in mind that 3 of those TDs are from punt returns.  the NCAA leader Royce Freeman (Oregon, 10)  has a tenuous hold on the scoring lead, but don’t sleep on Pettis to earn the TD lead this year.
