Washington State Report Card, Offense

Here's how I ranked the offensive guys. Defense and Special Teams will come later this afternoon.

QUARTERBACK:  A- (92)

Lyle Moevao continues to impress, after we were skeptical of his performance in a win against the Huskies. Long story short, he's done his job-- two back to back wins in the absence of Sean Canfield. So will he get a third consecutive start? It's still uncertain. We've got 12 days left for the Civil War, but Canfield hasn't thrown a pass since his injury, according to Riley.

Lyle's Stats: 15-for-28, 202 yards, 1 TD

It was also nice to see Ryan Gunderson play for the better chunk of the fourth quarter. He went 2-for-2 for 11 yards.

OFFENSIVE LINE: A (94)

These guys continue to get the job done week after week. This week, they helped the Beavers to 218 net rushing yards, on 49 attempts. OSU averaged 4.4 yards a rush. Yvenson Bernard picked up 74 yards thanks to these guys (he only played in the first half) and Clinton Polk went for 61, most of those coming on his 56 yard TD scamper at the start of the fourth quarter. Also, credit to Gregg Peat for stepping in at Right Guard for Jeremy Perry.

RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS: B (86)

The Beavers had one of their better days throwing the ball, as the Beaver receivers racked up 213 yards. James Rodgers, who had 125 all purpose yards, picked up 65 yards receiving. Darrell Catchings gained the most yards of the receivers with 70 yards on four receptions. Also receiving passes: Anthony Brown, Howard Croom (who scored), Shane Morales, and Yvenson Bernard.

RUNNING BACKS: A (94)

We had six different backs carry the ball (plus both quarterbacks) in Saturday's game, and together, they racked up 218 yards on 49 attempts. Yvenson Bernard had 17 rushes for 84 yards before he came out at halftime. It sounds like his knee is a bit sore, and he'll have a MRI today to get it checked out. Polk had three rushes for 61 yards, Matt Sieverson had 11 rushes for 49 yards, James Rodgers picked up 29 on 8 attempts, Patrick Fuller gained 14 yards, and Andy Stewart 4. All in all, good job running the ball against a mediocre defense.

OFFENSIVE AVERAGE: 91.5

GO BEAVERS!
