Posted Oct 11, 2008
THERE WAS ACTUALLY slight hiccup along the way but Oregon State dominated on both sides of the ball both before and after, and dispatched Washington State 66-13 in Corvallis. The Beavs outgained the Cougars by a margin of 4-to-1 in the first half, and yet it was still a game at the break. But two third quarter strikes put an end any doubt about who would come out on top.
