Oregon St. dominates California for a 49-17 win

Associated Press

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- Sean Mannion threw for 481 yards and
four touchdowns as Oregon State rolled to its sixth straight
victory, beating California 49-17 Saturday night.

Brandin Cooks caught 13 passes for a career-high 232 yards with
one touchdown and added another score on a 14-yard run as the
Beavers (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12) racked up plenty of gaudy stats
against a Cal unit ranked 121st of 123 FBS teams in terms of
total defense.

Cooks had 197 receiving yards before halftime, including catches
of 50, 38 and 34 yards - the last providing Oregon State's
fourth touchdown of the first half and a 28-3 lead.

Mannion, already the nation's leading passer, increased his
per-game average to 427.4 yards after going 35 for 45 on the
night. The Bay Area native found different receivers for each of
his touchdown passes and pushed his nation-leading total in that
category to 29. Mannion has thrown for at least 367 yards in
every game this season.

Cal (1-6, 0-4) lost its 11th consecutive game to an FBS
opponent, the longest such streak of any team in a BCS

Golden Bears true freshman quarterback Jared Goff threw for 220
yards but committed three turnovers in his own half - an
interception and two lost fumbles - before being replaced early
in the third quarter by Zach Kline.

Kline immediately led Cal on an 88-yard touchdown drive, capped
by a 7-yard swing pass to Darren Ervin. The redshirt freshman,
who lost a preseason battle with Goff for the right to run
first-year coach Sonny Dykes' Bear Raid offense, finished 11 for
16 for 71 yards and two touchdowns and added 28 yards rushing on
four attempts.

Cal gave the crowd brief hope with a stop on Oregon State's
first drive, but the Beavers took their next possession 91 yards
in less than 2 minutes for the game's opening score. Storm Woods
dove in for a 1-yard touchdown run.

Cal came back with a 22-yard field goal by Vincenzo D'Amato, but
the Beavers were handed great field position late in the first
quarter when Scott Critchton sacked Goff, forcing a fumble that
Mana Rosa recovered at Cal's 15. Three plays later, Mannion
found Caleb Smith in the middle of the end zone for a 14-3 lead.

Cooks put Oregon State ahead 21-3 on the Beavers' next
possession when he took an end around on fourth-and-2 and outran
the over pursuing Cal defenders to the end zone.

With 3:44 left in the half, Cooks and Mannion combined for their
13th touchdown connection of the season, a 34-yard catch-and-run
from a middle screen.

Oregon State killed off any lingering suspense after halftime by
marching downfield with the opening kickoff. The Beavers cashed
in with another interior screen touchdown pass, this one a
28-yarder to Woods that made it 35-3.

The Beavers responded to Kline's first touchdown pass with
another impressive drive, ending in a simple 15-yard slant for a
touchdown by Richard Mullaney and a 42-10 advantage.

Terron Ward added Oregon State's final touchdown, walking in
from 1 yard with 9:26 remaining.

Kline pulled another touchdown back for Cal with 3:44 left,
converting on fourth-and-goal with a 1-yard pass to Jacob Wark.
