NWSB Insider and Oregon State Beavers football blogger Jon Irwin breaks down the BYU vs. OSU week 7 matchup. Hoping to fill the void left by and injured Sean Mannion, backup quarterback Cody Vaz took his first snaps since 2010. While he saw some ups-and-downs, his fourth quarter effort paved the way to a Beaver victory. Meanwhile, penalties are once again an issue, and the defense lumbers along all game.
NWSB Insider and Oregon State blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on this week’s football matchup against the BYU Cougars in NCAA football week 7 action. Even while ranked No. 10 in the nation, the Oregon State Beavers have become the ultimate underdog. The Beavs enter LaVell Edwards Stadium with a junior who hasn’t taken a snap since 2010. With repeat performances from Markus Wheaton and Jordan Poyer, the Beavers have a great shot.
NWSB Insider and Oregon St. Beavers blogger Rick Stella asks the most important question out of the state of Oregon since the inception of the state itself, can Cody Vaz take over for Sean Mannion and lead this Beavers team to more wins? The answer will have to wait until Saturday to be answered, but this isn’t all on Vaz. The Beavs still have a shutdown defense that will help Vaz to not need to air it out in his first game.
NWSB Insider and Oregon State Beavers football blogger Jon Irwin reports on today’s news that Sean Mannion will be out indefinitely following knee surgery. The news has sent waves of disappointment through Beaver Nation. OSU’s 4-0 start is their best in years, and Mannion had a legitimate shot at chasing many of Derek Anderson’s team passing records.
