NOTEBOOK: Civil War

SCOTT CRICHTON

OREGON WENT FOR it on fourth down four times in the Civil War, tying the season-high for an opponent against Oregon State. Oregon was 0-for-4 on Saturday. But apart from that, far too little went the Beavers way.

Oregon State Team Notes
Sean Mannion's 58-yard touchdown pass to Jovan Stevenson in the second quarter was the third-longest scoring play of the season, and fourth of more than 50 yards, for the Beavers.

• The game concluded Oregon State's season at 3-9.

• The game marked just the second time this season the Beavers did not attempt a field goal. That also happened in the second game of the season against Wisconsin.

Oregon State Individual Notes
• Sean Mannion threw for 299 yards on 27-of-42 passing, giving him 11 consecutive games with 200 or more yards. That's two shy of Derek Anderson's 13 straight during the 2003 season, the most by an OSU quarterback over the last decade.

• Mannion's 299 passing yards gives him 3,328 on the season, the third-best single-season mark in Oregon State history, trailing only Derek Anderson in 2003 (4,058) and 2004 (3,615).

• Mannion's season-total of 3,328 passing yards is also now good for ninth in Oregon State career passing.

• Johnny Hekker had punts of 52 yards and 60 yards, respectively. He has had at least one 60-yard punt in six of the Beavers' 12 games this season.

• Hekker ended the game with three punts inside the 20, giving him 20 on the season.

Markus Wheaton finished with 39 yards receiving, giving him (986) on the season, the 10th-best mark in single-season team history.

• Wheaton also finished the season with 73 catches after grabbing two Saturday, which is the ninth-best total in a single-season at OSU.

Terron Ward received the kick to start the game. It marked his first career kickoff return.

• Jovan Stevenson's 58-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter was not only his longest catch of his career, but also his first receiving TD.

Mike Remmers started the 44th game of his career, putting home into sole possession of sixth in OSU career history. It also marked his 37th consecutive start.

Scott Crichton extended OSU record with a forced fumble in the third quarter, his sixth of the season. Michael Doctor recovered the ball for his first career fumble recovery.

• Redshirt frosh Crichton set a career-high with 12 tackles. His previous high was 11 against UCLA.

Rudolf Fifita recorded his first career sack in the fourth quarter.

Kevin Cummings' 26-yard reception in the fourth quarter marked a career-long. He later caught his first career touchdown on a 19-yard pass from Sean Mannion.
