As a close to four-TD favorite vs. Oregon State, many thought that the No. 6 Washington Huskies would make quick work of the Beavers. After all, Oregon State has been outscored 190-99 on the year and its lone win on the season was a 35-32 squeaker against FCS Portland State.
However, the Huskies have looked out of sorts so far in the game, with a number of dropped passes stalling drives, costly penalties that took points off the board, a missed field goal, and three sacks allowed.
Washington leads 7-0 at the break, and fans and media alike have sounded off in frustration.
Since UW's first-quarter TD, the Beavers and Huskies have traded punts 5 times. https://t.co/g6AAUBB1S6

Why is UW running this side to side passing crap against Oregon State? This isn't Alabama. #uwvsosu

Came home for lunch to catch some of the #UWvsOSU game and I’m kind of disappointed UW is only up by a touchdown

This Huskies kicker is trash

The Huskies did have an impressive 98-yard drive that was capped off by an 11-yard Jake Browning TD run, but the Dawgs looked pretty toothless for much of the first half.
We know Chris Petersen is a master tactician, so expect Washington to come out with more fire after the break.
