Mannion and Romaine named Pac-12 POW

ROMAINE: 5 TOUCHBACKS ON KICKOFFS TOO

OREGON STATE TOOK two of the three Pac-12 Players of the Week honors after their scintillating 51-48 win over Utah on Saturday.

Sean Mannion, a junior from Pleasanton, Calif., completed 27 of 44 passes for a career-high 443 yards in a 51-48 overtime win over Utah.

His five touchdown passes tied a school record while his yards total is the fourth most in team history and the highest total for a Beaver since 2003.

Mannion currently co-leads the nation in touchdown passes (12) and ranks second in the country in total yards (1,237) and total offense per game (404 ypg).

Trevor Romaine, a junior place-kicker from Corona, Calif., made all three of his field goal attempts from 20, 36, and 49 yards, the latter being a career-high.

Romaine also had nine kickoffs totaling 586 yards Saturday -- five of which were touchbacks.

The Beaver kicker has made five-of-six FG attempts on the season and now ranks ninth in team history with 184 career points.
