Quarterback Sean Mannion took the first snap when fall football practice opened for Oregon State.
Don't read too much into that.
The quarterback competition between Mannion and Cody Vaz will be closely watched over the next months as the Beavers prepare for the season.
Coach Mike Riley says he's going to see how camp goes before selecting his starter, but realizes he's in an enviable position of having two quarterbacks who can do the job.
Both players traded off often last season when the Beavers went 9-4 and finished third in the Pac-12 North.
Riley says he's lucky he has two players who can capably do the job. But he and his staff will likely have to project which QB will be the most consistent.
