Heading to the field: I'm about to head down to the field and then into postgame mode for notes and quotes. As always, the comments section of this blog is open for your thoughts.
11:59: UW answers quickly as Terrance Dailey goes up the middle for a 59-yard touchdown. As of now he has 15 carries for 99 yards, making his first college start one of the few bright spots of the evening.
12:52 of the fourth: James Rodgers (who has outshone Jacquizz) just sent a lot of fans to the exits with a 55-yard run.
End of third quarter: If this result holds, at least it looks like UW will retain company as one of two winless teams among the 119 teams in the NCAA bowl subdivision: winless North Texas is also trailing badly.
Never miss a local story.
Another note: No appearance by freshman Cody Bruns, who lost his redshirt in a three-play no-pass-attempt appearance at Arizona.
8:29 of the third: Oregon State marched 65 yards on their first possession, and this one is on the verge of getting out of reach .. and perhaps out of hand.
Halftime: What's working is Fouch-to-Goodwin. Goodwin has 122 receiving yards already. What isn't working is the running game: UW has 20 rushing yards. OSU has 76, although UW has kept Jacquizz Rodgers pretty much under control (25 yards).
Total yards favor OSU, 194-178.
OSU QB Lyle Moevao is 12 of 13 for 118 yards. Fouch is 10 of 18 for 158.
8:43 OSU turns another Fouch turnover -- a fumble this time -- into a James Rodgers TD -- on a middle screen this time.
14:09 of second: OSU turned the pick into a 37-yard field goal.
End of first: Unofficially, OSU 110 yards, UW 67; OSU four first downs, UW two; OSU 54 passing yards, UW 50; OSU 56 rushing yards, UW 17. And Fouch just threw an interception in UW territory for the lone turnover of the quarter.
2:23 of 1st: Oregon State went for it on a fourth and one in their own territory. They made it and were rewarded soon after when James Rodgers took a fly sweep 52 yards down the near sideline for the lead.
4:54 of first: A 48-yard pass from Ronnie Fouch to D'Andre Goodwin led to a 46-yard field goal by Jared Ballman giving UW it's first lead since the Stanford game.
Kickoff: The game is about to begin with UW receiving.
UW game captains are Paul Homer, Johnie Kirton, Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and Michael Gottlieb.
2 p.m. A couple of hours to kickoffs, and the Huskies have just walked across the field in street clothes and up the tunnel to prepare for their game vs. Oregon State.
Several preview items are blogged below. The game kicks off at 4 p.m. and will be shown on the Versus cable network.
As usual, I'll keep a running blog here with any pregame items, then with at least quarterly reports as the game progressed, then I'll pass it over to you for reaction while I get postgame notes and quotes for my final post tonight.
