In our current societal landscape, some individuals seem to be oblivious to basic norms, as evidenced by an incident at Oregon State University where a Beavers fan was spotted urinating in the middle of the concourse as if completely unaware of onlookers with his video viral
Unfortunately for him, numerous bystanders captured the act on their cell phones, and one can only hope that appropriate actions, such as police intervention and a lifetime ban from the stadium, were taken.

Such behavior has no place in the context of sporting events and is deemed utterly repulsive.

Oregon State vs Washington Huskies
Shifting the focus to the game itself, the Washington Huskies secured a hard-fought 22-20 victory over the Oregon State Beavers, maintaining their undefeated status, securing a spot in the Pac-12 title game, and remaining firmly in contention for the College Football Playoff.
Despite being shut out in the second half, the Huskies, with an 11-0 record, demonstrated resilience and sealed the win with crucial plays, particularly a key connection between quarterback Michael Penix Jr. and receiver Rome Odunze.
In the rainy setting of Reser Stadium, Washington established a 22-10 halftime lead through Penix Jr.’s two touchdown passes to Odunze. Despite only securing three first downs in the second half, the Huskies managed to hold on for the victory.
Second Half of the Game
Oregon State, controlling play in the latter part of the game, narrowed the score to 22-17 with a Damien Martinez touchdown run and added a field goal early in the fourth quarter.
Although the Beavers had an opportunity to take the lead, their drive stalled near midfield, and Washington ultimately secured the win, overcoming challenges in the rainy conditions. Penix secured the victory with a flawless back-shoulder throw to Odunze, resulting in a crucial 19-yard gain and a game-sealing first down.
While Penix’s performance may not have been the most impressive statistically this season, he executed crucial plays when it mattered. He accumulated 162 passing yards and two touchdowns, in addition to contributing a rushing touchdown.
Penix’s early touchdowns in the first half enabled Washington to establish and maintain a lead. However, a significant special teams error from Oregon State, a snap over the punter’s head for a safety, proved costly in the challenging weather conditions of the downpour during the first half.
Remarkably, those two points ultimately made the decisive difference in the game. Washington secured a notable road victory against the 11th-ranked team in the country, marking their third consecutive win over ranked opponents.
