A month ago, Washington was 5-1, ranked and appeared poised for a banner season under third-year coach Steve Sarkisian.
After getting rolled 38-21 at Oregon State, which entered the game at 2-8, things have come apart for the Huskies, who are losers of four of five and three in a row.
With quarterback Keith Price sitting out with a knee injury, the Huskies needed the defense to step up. It did not. The Beavers gained 484 yards, 116 more than their season average, and those 38 points are 18 more than the Pac-12's lowest scoring offense had been averaging.
The Beavers, who have won eight of 11 against Washington, scored 27 points in their previous three games.
Price's replacement, Nick Montana, struggled, and Price came off the bench to try to save the day. He couldn't.
He threw an interception at the Beavers' 1-yard line with 7:35 left in the game. The Beavers then drove 99 yards in 12 plays -- killing 5:23 off the clock -- for a final touchdown.
The Huskies, now 6-5, will play rival Washington State next weekend. Oregon State will conclude its season at Oregon.
