Beavers Edged In Seattle
SEATTLE, Wash. – Jermar Jefferson rushed for 133 yards and Jaydon Grant returned a blocked punt for a touchdown but Oregon State was edged by Washington, 27-21, Saturday night at Husky Stadium.
Jefferson tallied his 12th career 100-yard effort, scoring a touchdown with 18 seconds left in the first half that pulled the Beavers to within three. Oregon State (0-2 overall, 0-2 Pac-12 Conference), however, was unable to score in the second half.
Grant capitalized on a first quarter punt block by Hamilcar Rashed Jr., becoming the first Beaver to score a touchdown off a blocked punt since Clayton York in 2011 versus Arizona.
The Huskies (1-0, 1-0) scored the game's next 17 points to go ahead by 10. OSU pulled to within three with a B.J. Baylor 4-yard TD rush early in the second quarter.
UW's Dylan Morris ran for a 1-yard score with 2:19 remaining in the quarter to give the Huskies a 24-14 lead, which shrunk just two minutes later when Jefferson scored his fourth touchdown of the season.
A 23-yard field goal with 1:45 left in the fourth quarter by UW's Peyton Henry was the only scoring of the second half.
Oregon State returns to Reser Stadium next week when the Beavers host California on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 12:30 p.m. PT on FS1.
