Sean Mannion becomes OSU all-time leading passer
Kudos to Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion, who became the Beavers’ all-time leading passer Saturday in a 28-7 victory over San Diego State.
Needing 186 yards to surpass Derek Anderson for the top spot heading into the night, Mannion broke the record in the third quarter with a 27-yard pass to Hunter Jarmon and showed off his improved footwork in the process. Mannion finished the game 24-of-31 for 275 yards and now has 11,339 career passing yards.

Mannion provided plenty of highlights in the victory, be it a 43-yard completion on a 2nd-and-27 or a 49-yard bomb to Rahmel Dockery, which turned out to be Dockery's first career reception.

Mannion has two more Pac-12 quarterbacks to topple if he's to become the conference’s all-time leading gunslinger now: Matt Barkley (12,274 yards) and Carson Palmer (11,818 yards). If Mannion continues this pace, he should become the Pac-12 all-time leading passer sometime in October. A game against Utah on Oct. 16 or one on Oct. 25 at Stanford are the most likely candidates.
