Beavs survive OT thriller

SALT LAKE CITY — Sean Mannion's 6-yard touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks in overtime pushed Oregon State past Utah 51-48 Saturday night.

Mannion completed 27 of 44 passes for 443 yards and five touchdowns in a back-and-forth thriller. Cooks had nine receptions for 210 yards and three scores as the Beavers overcame the loss of Storm Woods to a frightening neck injury and opened Pac-12 play with a road win.

The weary OSU defense, which gave up 539 yards, forced a 41-yard field goal by Andy Phillips on Utah's possession in overtime.

Travis Wilson passed for 279 yards and ran for 142 and three touchdowns while rallying the Utes (2-1, 0-1 Pac-12) from 13 points down to tie the score at 45-45 on a 9-yard run with 21 seconds to play.

James Poole had a career-high 117 yards rushing and Dres Anderson had 101 yards receiving but the Utes couldn't overcome Wilson's three interceptions.
