The Oregon State football team’s rushing offense fell to 119th in the country out of 120 teams after Saturday’s performance in the 23-6 loss to California.
Read my full story in Monday’s GT on how the Beavers are still dedicated to the running game.
The Beavers average 87.8 yards a game rushing. Only Miami (Ohio) is worse at 77.2 yards a game.
The pass offense (280.7 ypg) ranks 20th in the country and fourth in the Pac-12 Conference. The total offense (368.5 ypg) is 10th in the Pac-12 and scoring offense (20.3 ppg) is last in the conference and 105th nationally.
The rush defense (183.7 ypg) ranks 11th in the Pac-12 with the pass defense (211.3 ypg) second, total defense (395.0 ypg) sixth and scoring (30.0) seventh.
The tackles for a loss is last in the conference and 114th nationally with 4.0 a game. Turnover margin is 11th in the Pac-12 and tied for 100th in the country at minus-0.7.
Individually, PK Trevor Romaine is tied for the lead in the Pac-12 in field goals made with 1.4 a game, or 14, but he he has missed seven and has a .667 percentage.
Romaine also his his ninth touchback of the season to extend his OSU single-season record, charted since 2007 when kickoffs where moved back to the 30-yard line.
QB Sean Mannion passed for 247 yards in the game. That was his ninth game of 200 or more yards.
LB Rueben Robinson suffered a concussion in the game, coach Mike Riley said Sunday night. He’s questionable for Saturday’s game with Washington.
OT Mike Remmers is having an MRI done on his knee. He was injured in the first quarter and played through the pain. “There’s no swelling, so it’s precautionary,” Riley said. “There doesn’t appear to be nothing scary there right now.”
C Geoff Garner is having an MRI on his shoulder done. “He has had some trouble with it, and it got worse in the game,” Riley said.
C Grant Johnson (ankle) is scheduled to practice Tuesday, so if Garner can’t go Johnson will return to the starting lineup.
WR Brandin Cooks returned kickoffs for CB Jordan Poyer because Riley wanted to see what he could do, and give Poyer a break.
