Sean Mannion hopes for better game against Cougars than in 2012

Oregon State Beavers quarterback Sean Mannion had a bad game against the Washington State Cougars in 2012. He threw for only 270 yards and completed less than 60% of his passes, but more importantly he threw three interceptions to only one touchdown. To make matters worse, Mannion tore the meniscus in his knee during the third quarter. The Beavers won 19-6, but it was a game Mannion would like to forget…

…well, unless he’s reminding himself of the errors he made on the interceptions:

One of them I left high. Another one was miscommunication: We called a wide receiver screen, and two guys thought they were getting the ball. Just a miscue. Then, the last one, we ran a shallow cross, there was pressure, I tried to get away from it and they played it well (Oregon Live).

Luckily for Oregon State fans, Mannion is putting together a monster 2013 campaign. He currently leads the country in both passing yards and passing touchdowns, and while the level of competition he’s faced hasn’t been great, his consistent performance shows a growth in maturity compared to how he played the past two season.

Mannion will get a shot at redeeming himself against the Washington State Cougars on Saturday. Coverage is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. PT, and the game can be seen on ESPNU.
