Oregon State Vs. Wisconsin Score: Beavers Switch QBs, Can't Punt, Will Lose

The Oregon State Beavers have actually done a nice job bottling up the running game of the Wisconsin Badgers. Too bad the rest of the of team has looked utterly dysfunctional in the early going of Saturday's game.

The Beavers started the game with Ryan Katz under center. Three plays and a first down later on the team's first drive he was replaced by freshman Sean Mannion, who promptly threw the ball into the waiting arms of the Badger secondary for a near interception.

The Beavers forced a three-and-out on the Badgers first drive, but couldn't do anything with the ball (and Mannion at quarterback) from within their end zone. Johnny Hekker gave the Badgers back even more field position when his shanked rugby-style punt went for minus-four yards to their own 14 yard line. The Badgers scored three plays later on a touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to tight end Jacob Pederson to take a 7-0 lead.
