Their performances in Oregon St.'s 44-21 win over Washingto St. Saturday night in Seattle earned quarterback Sean Mannion and DE Scott Crichton Pac-12 Player of the Week honors.
Mannion, a redshirt freshman, completed 26 of 34 passes (76%) to 11 different receivers for 376 yards and 4 touchdowns. Both the yardage and touchdown counts are career highs for Mannion. It's also been 2 years since the Beavers have had 4 receiving touchdowns in a game.
Crichton, also a redshirt freshman, co-led the Beavers with seven tackles, including two for losses, and one sack. Crichton also had a pass breakup, and forced two fumbles. The two forced fumbles has already tied Crichton for the Oregon St. record for forced fumbles in a season with four just past the midseason mark. Crichton now co-leads the Pac-12 in tackles for a loss, with 10, which is tied for 17th in the NCAA.
