CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — B.J. Baylor had 20 carries for 110 yards and two touchdowns, Everett Hayes kicked a 24-yard field goal as time expired and Oregon State beat the UW Huskies 27-24 on Saturday night.

Oregon State 27, UW Huskies 24: Box Score

It’s still relatively early in the season, but Oregon State’s win combined with Stanford’s upset of No. 3 Oregon in overtime puts the Beavers (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) in first place.

Oregon State snapped a nine-game losing streak to Washington (2-3, 1-1 Pac-12) and is 2-0 in conference play for the first time since 2013.

Oregon State rallied for its fourth consecutive win after losing the lead in the fourth quarter.

A strip-sack of Oregon State quarterback Chance Nolan by Faatui Tuitele at the OSU 13 and fellow defensive lineman Sam Taimani’s recovery and 13-yard run set up Sean McGrew’s 6-yard touchdown run, giving Washington the lead at 24-17 with 10:02 left.

Back came the Beavers.

A 19-yard run on a reverse to wide receiver Anthony Gould, followed by Gould’s 22-yard reception set up Baylor’s 27-yard run to tie the game at 24-24 with 6:35 remaining.

McGrew was stopped inches short of a first down on a fourth-and-1 direct snap run near midfield at the 3:18 mark. The spot was upheld on an official’s review.

McGrew’s 39-yard touchdown run up the middle tied the game at 17-17 with 10:19 remaining.

Dylan Morris’ 18-yard pass to Kamari Pleasant on third and 18 deep in Huskies territory kept the drive alive.

Oregon State gained momentum early in the second quarter.

Cornerback Rejzahn Wright recovered Cameron Davis’ fumble at the Huskies’ 12. The turnover led to Jack Colletto’s 3-yard touchdown run and a tie game at 7-7.

The Beavers took their first lead at 14-7 on B.J. Baylor’s 5-yard touchdown around right end midway through the second quarter.

Peyton Henry converted a 20-yard field goal on the final play of the first half and the Beavers led 14-10 at the break.

Hayes made a 29-yard field goal to increase the Oregon State’s lead to 17-10 at 5:28 of the third quarter.

Washington took the opening kickoff and marched 75 yards for the score, culminated by a 44-yard pass to a wide-open Terrell Bynum, who was not touched on his way to the end zone.


Washington: Redshirt freshman quarterback Dylan Morris, who went into the game leading the Pac-12 in passing yards, continues to show promise. He completed 17 of 26 for 142 yards with a touchdown and interception, and was 4-for-4 for 70 yards and a score on the game’s opening drive.

The UW Huskies have allowed just two passing touchdowns this season.

Oregon State: Chance Nolan, who came into the game ranked fourth nationally in passing efficiency, struggled to find passing lanes against the Huskies. He completed just 7 of 15 for 48 yards and an interception, and lost a fumble on a sack.

But OSU’s running game, which amassed 322 yards against USC, accounted for 242 yards and was a major factor in the win.


Oregon State backup linebacker Jack Colletto has become an offensive weapon. A former quarterback for the Beavers, Colletto is often called on in short-yardage situations to take direct snaps. He scored his fourth rushing touchdown of the season against Washington.

In the Beavers’ previous game at USC, Colletto became the first FBS player since 2004 with two rushing touchdowns and an interception in the same game as the Beavers won 45-27, their first victory at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since 1960.


Washington: The UW Huskies have a bye next week and will host UCLA on Oct. 16.

Oregon State: The Beavers will be at Washington State next Saturday.
