Monday night notes and links — Mannion to start for Oregon State

There was a bit of news out of Corvallis today as Oregon State coach Mike Riley said Sean Mannion will return to start at quarterback Saturday night against UW in Seattle.

Here’s the story from The Oregonian. As the story notes, Mannion, a sophomore, started Oregon State’s first four games this season. Mannion started against UW last year in Corvallis and led the Beavers to a 38-21 win, throwing for 329 yards and two touchdowns.

Starting cornerback Jordan Poyer also sat out OSU’s practice today with a sprained wrist, though he said he will be back for the UW game.
