(Saturday, September 28)

Final Score: Oregon State 44, Colorado 17

Corvallis, OR (Sports Network) - Sean Mannion set a new school record with six touchdown passes as the Oregon State Beavers coasted to a 44-17 win over the Colorado Buffaloes in a Pac-12 Conference matchup at Reser Stadium.

Mannion picked apart the defense throughout the contest as he completed 27- of-52 pass attempts for 414 yards to lead Oregon State (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) to its fourth win in a row. Mannion was picked off once, but now has 2,018 yards passing and 21 touchdowns through just five games. He new passing touchdown record broke his own record of five he set earlier this season against Utah.

Brandin Cooks had a strong showing with nine receptions for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Terron Ward led the Beavers in rushing with 55 yards while also making seven catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. Two of Caleb Smith's three receptions resulted in touchdowns as well.

Connor Wood had a tough day under center for Colorado (2-1, 0-1), connecting on only 14-of-34 attempts for 146 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Paul Richardson led the Buffaloes receiving corps with five catches for 70 yards and a touchdown. Michael Adkins II made a strong impression in his debut with 98 yards on 14 attempts.

Oregon State struck first as Trevor Romaine connected on a 36-yard field goal try less than five minutes after the opening kickoff.

Colorado's offense was forced to punt on its first two drives of the contest. Greg Henderson intercepted Mannion and returned the pick all the way to OSU's 17-yard line to give the Buffaloes great field position for their third drive. They were stopped on third-and-goal from three yards away and settled for a 19-yard field goal by Will Oliver that tied the score at three.

Mannion made up for his miscue late in the first quarter by connecting with Caleb Smith on a three-yard touchdown pass.

Neither offense could get anything going in the second quarter until Mannion completed an eight-yard touchdown pass to Cooks with only 16 seconds left before the intermission. Romaine's successful extra point conversion sent the Beavers into halftime with a 17-3 lead.

OSU extended its lead early in the third quarter as Mannion completed a 22- yard touchdown pass to Cooks to finish off the team's opening drive of the half. Mannion continued to pick apart Colorado's secondary and added a 42-yard touchdown pass to Ward along with a four-yard pass for six points to Smith to extend the Beavers' lead to 38-3 before the start of the fourth quarter.

The Buffaloes ended the 35-point run as Wood connected with Tyler McCulloch on a 24-yard scoring pass. Wood completed a pass to Devin Ross on a two-point conversion attempt as well. OSU recovered an on-side kick and moved down the field on its next possession to put Romaine in position for a 42-yard field goal try, but his attempt was no good. Ryan Murphy intercepted Wood on the next play from scrimmage to return the ball back to the Beavers, who scored on the following play as Mannion completed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Connor Hamlett. The extra-point attempt was missed by OSU.

Colorado added six points in the closing seconds as Wood found Richardson, who scored on a 28-yard reception. The ensuing two-point conversion was unsuccessful and the game clock ran out moments later.

OSU gained 540 yards of total offense and limited Colorado to 300 offensive yards. The Buffaloes held a 154-120 edge in rushing yards, but committed four turnovers and recorded only two takeaways.
