SEATTLE — Jake Locker threw a career-high five touchdown passes, including two in overtime to Jermaine Kearse, and Oregon State’s 2-point conversion attempt in the second overtime fell incomplete as the Huskies beat the No. 24 Beavers 35-34 on Saturday night.
Moments after a late pass-interference call on fourth-down against Washington gave the Beavers new life in the second overtime, Jacquizz Rodgers scored his third rushing touchdown to pull Oregon State to 35-34.
Beavers coach Mike Riley decided to try and end it there, emptying the backfield and putting the game on the arm of quarterback Ryan Katz. His throw to Joe Halahuni was on target, but Halahuni was hit by linebacker Cort Dennison as the ball arrived and couldn’t hold on, setting off a wild Washington celebration on the field.
