No. 16 Oregon crushes Washington St.

BY foxsports • October 4, 2009

With the rout of Washington State well under way, there was no need for Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli to stick around once he tweaked his knee.

Masoli threw for 116 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score before sitting out the second half of No. 16 Oregon's 52-6 victory over the Cougars on Saturday night.

After backup Nate Costa took over late in the second quarter, Masoli was seen icing his right knee. He caused further concern when he returned to the field after halftime wearing his warmups.

He said afterward the injury was no big deal and that he was coming out of the game anyway because Oregon had built a 35-0 lead.
