Football: OSU’s Mannion to start vs. Huskies

Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion (Foothill HS-Pleasanton) is scheduled to start on Saturday against Washington, less than three weeks after undergoing surgery on his left knee.

The unbeaten and seventh-ranked Beavers (6-0) won twice behind backup Cody Vaz in Mannion’s absence, beating BYU on the road and Utah at home. But Mannion was averaging 339.5 passing yards per game before he was injured.
