CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Saturday's game between Washington State and Oregon State could look a lot like the old pass-happy Pac-10.

On one side there are the Cougars with new coach Mike Leach's trademark Air Raid attack. On the other are the No. 14 Beavers with sophomore quarterback Sean Mannion, who is throwing with confidence after a trying debut last season.

Mannion was named the Pac-12 player of the week after passing for a career-high 433 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner to Connor Hamlett with 1:17 left, in Oregon State's 38-35 victory at Arizona last weekend.

The week before Mannion threw for 379 yards -- his previous career high -- against UCLA.
