Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State redshirt senior QB Conor Blount (concussion) has passed concussion protocol tests and will practice this week as the team prepares for its November 10 game against Stanford. Oregon State HC Jonathan Smith said Monday that Blount cleared concussion protocol ahead of the team's Nov. 3 game against USC and would have been available if needed. With the redshirt senior given a clean bill of health, Oregon State has a decision to make regarding the spot on the depth chart behind starter Jake Luton. Jack Colletto, Oregon State's most mobile quarterback, started the Oct. 27 win over Colorado and served as Luton's backup in the loss to USC.
Washington senior QB Jake Browning completed 16-of-27 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and also rushed for a score in a 27-23 victory over Stanford on Saturday. Browning started out red-hot; completing 7-of-9 passes to start the game, and opening the contest with a rushing touchdown. He threw his touchdown pass on the next drive, but after that, Stanford pressured the heck out of Browning, and he was forced to throw the ball away more often than he'd like. Still, a nice bounceback for the senior after the (probably unjustified) benching last week. Browning gets a week off before taking on Oregon State on November 17.
The Beavers are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games overall.
The Huskies are 1-4 against the number in their last five home games.
Washington’s defense is stout but its offense has been stagnant all season so I don’t feel compelled to lay 33.5 points on the Huskies, regardless of who the opponent is. Speaking of which, the Beavers are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games in Seattle and the road team in this series is 4-1 against the number in the last five meetings. The Huskies, who are winless at the betting window in their last five games overall, are overvalued here.
