Oregon State quarterback Colby Porter Jr. accounted for a school record five rushing touchdowns and also threw for two more as Oregon State improved to 3-0 with a thrashing of Idaho State yesterday. Porter Jr. ran for 206 yards on 23 carries and completed 18 of 27 pass attempts for 314 yards. He also caught three passes for 77 yards, bringing his total to 597 yards on the day.
“He was doing it all out there today.” Co-offensive coordinator T.J. Woods said after the game. “He kept bugging us for a few snaps at receiver and it looks like he can do that too.”
Porter found the endzone for the first time on Oregon State's first possession, running in from four yards out.PORTER JR SCORES THE FIRST OF MANY TDS
Following an Idaho State field goal Porter scored again, this time on a 15 yard run that put Oregon State on top 14-3. After that the rout was on.
Porter scored twice in the second quarter on runs of four and seven yards. Then, just before halftime, he connected with receiver Seth Collins on a post and the receiver went 80 yards for a score. The Beavers led 35-3 at the break.WR SETH COLLINS CROSSES MIDFIELD EN ROUTE TO AN 80 YARD TOUCHDOWN
Idaho State finally put together a good drive and found the endzone on a one yard run by Ford in the third quarter, cutting the lead to 35-10. Porter answered a few minutes later with a 32 yard touchdown run.PORTER JR FINDS THE ENDZONE YET AGAIN
After a four yard touchdown pass to Timmy Hernandez on the first play of the fourth quarter put the Beavers up 49-10 Porter's day was over, at least at quarterback.
Marcus McMaryion and Darell Garretson rotated at QB for the rest of the game. McMaryion struggled, completing zero of his five pass attempts. Garretson was better, completing four of ten attempts.
The story of the fourth quarter was Porter Jr's brief appearance at wide receiver. On the first play he was in he ran past his defender and caught a pass for 50 yards. He would catch two more passes, totaling 77 yards, before he was relegated to the sideline for good.
“Just trying to have some fun you know.” Porter Jr. explained when asked about playing receiver. “We've done that a bit in practice and I've been working on coach Woods a lot. I think he wanted to shut me up to be honest.”
Both Woods and Porter were unsure if it will happen again.
“I'm not sure.” Woods explained. “I'm not sure we'll see that in a game again.”
With Porter doing so much of the heavy lifting in the running game there wasn't much left for others to do. The second leading rusher was Ryan Nall who carried the ball seven times for 31 yards. Victor Bolden Jr carried for 23 yards on a jet sweep. Seth Collins led the receivers with 126 yards and a score on four receptions. Porter was the second leading receiver.
Oregon State improves to 3-0 on the season. They will host Colorado next Saturday.Scoring
