  • CORVALLIS — Bishop Sankey ran for 179 yards and three touchdowns, matching Napoleon Kaufman's Washington record for career rushing touchdowns with 34, and the Huskies defeated Oregon State 69-27 on Saturday night.
    Redshirt freshman Cyler Miles made his first college start and threw for 162 yards and a touchdown for Washington (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) which clinched a winning record with the victory. Deonte Cooper ran for 166 yards and Dwayne Washington ran for 141 yards and two more scores, and the Huskies finished with 530 yards on the ground, second-most for a single game in school history.
    It was Washington's biggest margin of victory over the Beavers since a 58-6 win in the 1991 national championship season.
    Sean Mannion threw for 229 yards and a score but also threw three interceptions for the Beavers, who lost their fourth straight. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak over the Huskies at Reser Stadium. And it was Oregon State's worst loss since falling 35-0 at Wisconsin in 2011.
    Washington was without starting quarterback Keith Price, who injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the second quarter of the Huskies' 41-31 loss to UCLA last weekend. Miles had appeared in six previous games for the Huskies this season, throwing for 250 yards and three touchdowns.
    Sankey scored on a 3-yard run to put Washington in front 7-0 early in the game. It was his 32nd career touchdown run, tying him for second on the Huskies' career list with Joe Steele. Sankey edged a touchdown closer to Kaufman with a 5-yard scoring run less than three minutes later that extended Washington's lead.
    Travis Coons added a 44-yard field goal to make it 17-0 before the end of the first quarter. Mannion was intercepted under pressure, giving Washington the ball in the red zone and the Huskies went on to score on Coons' 24-yard field goal.
    Miles found Kevin Smith in the end zone with a 28-yard pass and Washington went up 27-0 before halftime.
    Sankey got his third touchdown on an 8-yard run in the third, before Cooper scored on a 2-yard dash to give the Huskies a 41-0 lead.
    The Beavers avoided the shutout early in the fourth quarter when Mannion found Cooks with a 29-yard touchdown pass with 14:40 left in the game. Mannion went into the game leading the nation with an average of 386 yards passing per game and 33 total touchdowns.
    Cooks had 117 receiving yards, which gave him 1,560 for the season and put him over Oregon State's single-season record of 1,532 set by Mike Hass in 2005. He already has the school record for receptions with 110 receptions.
    Washington pushed their lead to 62-6 with two quick scores, on Cooper's 1-yard run and Dwayne Washington's 32-yard dash. Oregon State answered with Victor Bolden's 98-yard kickoff return and scored again on Chris Brown's 3-yard run to make it 62-20.
    Washington added a 71-yard touchdown run for the Huskies before Mannion's backup, Cody Vaz, threw a 33-yard scoring pass to Micah Hatfield for the final margin.
    Washington finished with 692 yards in total offense, compared to 414 for Oregon State.
    No. 19 Arizona St. 38,No. 14 UCLA 33
    At Pasadena, Calif., Taylor Kelly passed for 225 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 99 yards and another score, and Arizona State hung on in the fourth quarter to clinch its first Pac-12 South title.
    Marion Grice had 95 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving for the surging Sun Devils (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12), who will face Stanford in the league title game in two weeks. If Arizona State beats Arizona in the Territorial Cup game next week, the Sun Devils will host the Cardinal.
    Jaelen Strong had six catches for 91 yards and a score, but Arizona State blew most of a 22-point halftime lead over the Bruins (8-3, 5-3) and scored just three points in the second half. The Sun Devils' defense held UCLA scoreless on its final two drives to wrap up their sixth consecutive victory.
    No. 10 Stanford 63, California 13
    At Stanford, Calif., Ty Montgomery matched a Stanford school record with five touchdowns, scoring his first four on as many touches to start the game, and the Cardinal beat Bay Area rival California while also clinching a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with Oregon's loss.
    Kevin Hogan threw four of his five scoring passes to Montgomery, including a 9-yard completion just before halftime that put Stanford ahead 42-13.
    No. 23 USC 47, Colorado 29
    At Boulder, Colo., sophomore Javorius Allen ran for a career-best 145 yards and three touchdowns and Southern California beat Colorado.
    The Trojans (9-3, 6-2 Pac-12) improved to 6-1 under interim coach Ed Orgeron.
    Washington State 49, Utah 37
    At Pullman, Wash., Connor Halliday threw for 488 yards and four touchdowns as Washington State beat Utah to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2006.
    Dom Williams caught a pair of touchdown passes for Washington State (6-5, 4-4 Pac-12), which also returned two interceptions for touchdowns.
