Riley under fire as OSU travels to Seattle

HUSKIES, COLLEGE FOOTBALL

With Oregon State bringing a 2-3 record to Seattle, the Times' Bob Condotta takes the opportunity to detail the Beaver fans' dissatisfaction with coach Mike Riley.

The Beavers do present one challenge to the UW coaching staff: Finding decent film on the OSU offense. Seems last year's OSU-UW game was played in a driving rain, and the Beavers have played just one close game this season (last week vs. WSU).

One area the Huskies want to improve is their long snapping, where freshman Danny Morovick has had some problems.

The News Tribune's Don Ruiz gives the Huskies their midseason grades. There is no overall one, but he did give out two As, for coaching and quarterback play.
