CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Jake Browning threw four touchdown passes as Washington scored on its first six possessions on the way to 52-7 win over Oregon State Saturday.
The Huskies (5-6, 3-5 Pac-12) had the easiest of times putting away Oregon State, taking a 28-0 lead in the first quarter, tying a Washington record for most points scored in the opening quarter.
Browning completed 18 of 20 passes for 211 yards, most of it coming in a half where the Huskies rolled to a 45-0 halftime lead. Brayden Lenius caught two touchdown passes, while running back Myles Gaskins had 23 carries for 127 yards.
Washington outgained Oregon State 482-257 in yardage. The Huskies had 271 yards on the ground. Washington's defense had two takeaways.
The Huskies kept their bowl hopes faintly alive. Washington can become bowl eligible with a win next Friday against Washington State.
The Beavers (2-9, 0-8) lost their eighth consecutive game.
