Oregon State beats Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:07 p.m. HST, Sep 07, 2013

Still stinging from last week's loss to Eastern Washington, Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion threw four touchdown passes as the Beavers beat Hawaii 33-14 in today's nonconference football game played at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Ore.

The loss dropped Hawaii to 0-2 for the season as the Rainbow Warriors take next week off before heading to Nevada to face the Wolf Pack in the Mountain West Conference opener. The Beavers are 1-1 and head to Utah for their first Pac-12 Conference game of the season.

Tied at the half, Oregon State took the opening drive of the third quarter and went 69 yards on nine plays to regain the advantage. The final play was an 8-yard scoring strike from Mannion to Brandin Cooks as Trevor Romaine added the PAT to make it 21-14 at the 10:18 mark of the third quarter.

After holding Hawaii's offense, the Beavers went on another long march to extend their advantage even more. Once again, Mannion found Cooks from 8 yards out as Romaine hit the PAT to make it 28-14 Oregon State with 5:36 remaining in the third.

Romaine extended the margin to 31-14 with a 35-yard field goal with 7:36 left. Three seconds later, the Oregon State defense registered a safety. UH return man Chris Gant caught the kickoff and stepped out at the half-yard line to set up the eventual 2-point play.

Trailing by two touchdowns in the second, Hawaii cut the lead in half with a 23-yard interception return for a touchdown by Julian Gener, who stepped in front of a pass by Mannion, bobbled it and then went in untouched for the score. Tyler Hadden added the PAT to make it 14-7 with 10:13 remaining in the second quarter.

The defense held on the ensuing series as the UH offense set up shop at its own 20. Nine plays later, UH quarterback Taylor Graham hit Clark Evans from 15 yards out as Hadden's PAT tied it 14-14 with 4:30 before the half.

After forcing Hawaii to punt on the opening series of the game, the Beavers went 66 yards on only two plays to score first with 11:30 remaining in the opening quarter. Mannion dialed up a nifty 48-yard screen pass to Storm Woods to set up a first and goal at the 3.

Mannion dropped back and lofted a nice touchdown pass to Kellen Clute from 3 yards out as the PAT was good by Romaine to give Oregon State the early 7-0 advantage.

The Beavers increased the lead to 14-0 on a 19-yard touchdown pass from Mannion to Richard Mullaney, who beat Ne'Quan Phillips on the play. The score at the 14:09 mark of the second quarter capped a grueling 15-play, 69-yard drive that took 8:09 off the clock. Twice Oregon State went for it on fourth and short, and made it both times on sneaks by Mannion.

Hawaii is without defensive leader Brenden Daley, who suffered a concussion on a kickoff early in the game. He left the field in an ambulance, but could move his extremities. He high-fived UH players as he left the field.

What do you know that you can criticize? Miss who thinks she KNOWS IT ALL! Now I understand how others are so irritated with your ignorant comments. Chow has take a team that was doing poorly and he needs time to rebuild the program. I guess you could do it after one season since you're so PERFECT!

Yeah....so what we had before was better? Chow isn't lining up pushover teams like June Jones used to do. So how long did it take Junes Jones to get to a winning program?

Let me refresh your memory if you don't mind me doing so. In his inaugural season at UH, June Jones led the Warriors to a 9-4 season--the biggest turnaround in NCAA history! Almost as impressive, during his first year at SMU, J.J. led the Mustangs to an 8-5 record--which was the biggest turnaround in the 2009 NCAA football season.

Another...I want it now. Chow is still not fully playing his own players. He is left with the recruiting from the previous years and it takes a coach 3 - 4 years minimum to rebuild a program was in total shambles. Why do you think June Jones wanted McMackin to get the job? Mac wouldn't expose how poor a coach Junes Jones really was and is.

EW is not D2. They were formerly 1AA (which was not D2), before the new terminology of FCS and FBS. Still a D1 team, just the lower Division...And yes EW would kick our tails right now. Anyway, calling them D2 and thinking that this was our best chance to win this year makes you sound like you have very little NCAA football knowledge.

defense did kind of alright but those third and long yards, OSU got first downs out of them. defense maybe a C offense maybe a D. not good overall especially when gant took that kickoff and ran out of bounds at the one. should have let it go. to much mental errors which led to the loss. OH WELL GO WARRIORS

Best OC, quarterback coach produce Heismen winner, feel like a receiver coach. That is Norm Chow. Our offense shows all this. All you that backs him up open your mouth now after 14 games. Do you see an improvement. You have better eyes then me.

If you look at the Rainbowwarriort network blog, many are calling for Coach Norm Chow to be fired. Some of the comments was his offensive scheme sucks, many drop passes by the receivers, and other negative comments. I'm not on board, yet, in calling for Coach Norm chow to be replaced, but if Chow's offensive doesn't show some enlightment power than I would be one of many calling for a new Head Coach in 2014. The Rainbow Warriors have a bye this week and plan go on the road to play Nevada who blew the Warriors out 69-24 on our turf. If that happens again, the attendance for the next home game against Fresno wil just be close to an empty Aloha Stadium (my guess). But being positive and giving Coach the benefit of the doubt, I believe they can beat Nevada on the road. If that happens, than I can see our offensive unit starts to jell. I hope so.

If we can keep pac12 teams to 4 or 5 TDs..that's pretty decent D. The O should be able to score 28-35 a game..which would mean we are competitive. The D is decent..the O sux.

Beginning to worry about Norm's ability to turn the ship around. Knew when he ditched his OC a few weeks before the season things were most likely not going to go well. After being a very good OC himself you would think he would have figured out that most all top 25 programs have a Head Coach AND an OC. Gee Norm ... I wonder why that is ? Think he needs to decide if wants to be a Head Coach, an OC or a QB coach. I doubt he has the ability to be all three at once and succeed. I can't think of any Top 25 program that is even trying. To make matters worse neither USC or OSU, as it turns out, are Top 25 teams. Hope we turn it around in two weeks ... if not it's going to be a very long season. Prayers are with Brenden ...
