Terron Ward's 2 touchdowns propel Oregon State past Colorado
Leading 30-24 with less than 11 minutes left in the game, the Oregon State Beavers needed a long drive and a score to put the game out of Colorado's reach. Running back Terron Ward helped them do just that Saturday in Boulder.
The drive took nearly six minutes and ended with a Ward scamper into the end zone, which gave the Beavers a 36-24 lead in an eventual 36-31 victory for OSU, as viewed on Pac-12 Networks.
The senior's longest run against CU, for 33 yards, set up the Beavers' first score of the day and ended a four-play, 63-yard drive. Ward scored those first points for Oregon State on a 4-yard touchdown run, which gave the Beavs a lead they would never relinquish. Ward only had 12 carries Saturday, but he took advantage of each one, averaging 8.5 yards per attempt to finish with 102 total. It was his third game of the season with multiple touchdowns and second with more than 100 yards.
