Halftime: Washington State 28, Oregon State 9

Seth Collins

"We've been waiting for our outside receivers to get in a rhythm", Leach said. "Being in the right place at the right time".

Finally, with 11 minutes left in the second quarter, James Williams went off left tackle for 24 yards to help the Cougs extend their lead to 14-2. Oregon State traveled to Ft.

Falk fired a 57-yard touchdown pass to Martin in the third quarter to open a 35-16 lead.

The Beavers cut the lead to 14-9 before the Washington State offense responded with Falk's short touchdown pass to Martin. Ryan Nall's two touchdowns moved him into a tie for ninth on Oregon State's all-time list.

With the game out of hand, head coach Gary Andersen said the decision to keep Luton in the game was an effort to "get the offense better" with more reps.

"It is very frustrating in those situations", Andersen said. "At the end of the day, you want to make sure he's OK, and we got good word that he's gonna be all right".

A 40-yard fumble return touchdown by Frankie Luvu gave Washington State (3-0, 1-0) its largest lead at 49-16.

"All three sides of the ball played well and contributed", Leach said.

"His health's bigger than all of this", running back Ryan Nall said after the Beavers' 52-23 loss in Pullman.

The Cougars wore helmet stickers in honor of nearby Freeman High School, where a shooter killed one student and wounded three others last Wednesday. "As a matter of fact, I may never say anything positive about them again". Falk and the Cougars should have little trouble against an Oregon State defense that ranks last in the Pac-12 in several categories and has not recorded a sack through three games.

WASHINGTON STATE: Off to its best start under sixth-year coach Leach.

Oregon State has a bye week before taking on No. 6 Washington on September 30.

Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton is moving all extremities and "gonna be alright" after he was removed from the field on a stretcher and cart Saturday during the fourth quarter of Saturday's game at Washington State, teammates were told following the contest.
