It’s not often that the Oregon State football team looks back at a previous year’s game.
But last year’s loss to Washington is a hard one to forget.
The Beavers are headed to Seattle this weekend to take on the Huskies.
OSU lost to UW in embarrassing fashion last season.
The Huskies ran all over the Beavers, piling up 530 yards on the ground and handed OSU a 69-27 loss.
Bishop Sankey rushed for 179 yards and three touchdowns, Deontae Cooper had 166 yards and two scores and Dwayne Washington added 141 yards and two touchdowns.
“I would hope we have lots of motivation,” OSU coach Mike Riley said.
“I just asked them how much they remembered about that game at the end of practice (Tuesday).
“I guess there are many different buttons that are pushed about motivation but that may be very, very appropriate for most of us here.”
Terron Ward met with reporters to discuss his knee injury.
Ward suffered a torn meniscus in OSU’s win over Arizona State.
He will miss the rest of the regular season and that could mean his college career is over.
“It’s crazy to even think about that. I’ve thought about that many times in the last few days,” Ward said.
“It was a good game to go out in, I guess. Upset the No. 6 team. But I won’t get to play in the Civil War, I won’t play in the Washington game. I don’t know if we have a bowl game. So it’s hard to swallow, but it’s part of life.”
Riley was impressed with the Huskies’ performance at Arizona.
UW lost on a last-second field goal.
“I thought the played a really good all-around game,” Riley said.
“Offensively, I thought they played their best game last week. They looked good and had a lot of variety in it.”
