WASHINGTON 37, OREGON STATE 13
PLAYER OF THE GAME
UW quarterback Cyler Miles went 18 of 23 for 253 yards and two touchdowns to help the Huskies bounce back from a gut-wrenching loss at Arizona the week before. He also did not commit a turnover on Saturday, though he did have to recover his own fumble at the end of the first half.
PLAY OF THE GAME
Big plays were the theme on UW’s first two possessions, as they scored on a 54-yard touchdown pass play from Miles to Jaydon Mickens and then added a 68-yard run by Dwayne Washington that put UW up 14-0 with 4:47 left in the first quarter.
Washington led 17-7 at halftime and punted on the opening possession of the second half. Oregon State appeared to have momentum after completing a 46-yard pass to the UW 23 on its first play. But on the next play, quarterback Sean Mannion threw a pass that was intercepted by Travis Feeney at the Washington 12 and returned 59 yards to the Oregon State 29. Washington eventually hit a 41-yard field goal to extend its lead to 20-7 with 10:27 to go and was never threatened the rest of the game.
