It didn’t take long for Oregon State coach Mike Riley to name a starting quarterback for the rest of the season.
Earlier today, we noted that Riley would choose between freshman Sean Mannion, who took a majority of the snaps for OSU in Week 2 against Wisconsin, and incumbent starter Ryan Katz sometime this week or next.
“We’ll have discussions during the week about it,” Riley said. “I liked the idea (of a dual quarterback), but I didn’t like how it went.”
Turns out, Riley didn’t need as much time as he had stated previously, as Mannion was announced as the starter earlier today.
Katz has been taking snaps with the Beavers’ second-team offense and could still see the field in some capacity. However, barring an injury, it looks like Mannion will be the future at quarterback for Oregon State.
