BERKELEY, Calif. – Sean Mannion threw for 481 yards and four touchdowns as Oregon State rolled to its sixth straight victory, beating California 49-17 Saturday night.

Brandin Cooks caught 13 passes for a career-high 232 yards with one TD and also scored on a 14-yard run as the Beavers (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12) racked up plenty of gaudy stats against a shoddy Cal (1-6, 0-4) defense.

Mannion, already the nation’s leading passer, increased his per-game average to 427.4 yards after going 35 for 45 on the night. He found different receivers for each of his TD passes, pushing his nation-best total to 29.
