The Washington Huskies went to Corvallis and defeated Oregon State football in a hard-fought score 22-20 on Saturday to stay undefeated.

Hence, Washington clinched a spot in the Pac-12 title game and stayed firmly in the College Football Playoff.

On a rainy night, Washington took a convincing 22-10 lead into halftime after a pair of touchdown passes from Michael Penix Jr. to Rome Odunze.

The Oregon State Beavers controlled the play in the second half to cut Washington’s lead.

Damien Martinez's touchdown run changed the score to 22-17 in the final minutes of the third

Then Oregon State football added a field goal early in the fourth quarter.

This goal just cut Washington’s lead to 22-20 with 10:40 to play.

Oregon’s defense quickly forced a punt and got a chance to take the lead.

Hence, the drive started at the Beavers’ 5-yard line but stalled near midfield.

When the clock was at 2:08, Washington got a third-and-3 play from the Oregon State 40.

Coach Kalen DeBoer put the ball in Penix’s hands to find another connection with Odunze.

The Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback delivered a perfect throw to Odunze for a 19-yard gain.

After beating the Oregon State football, the Huskies will conclude the regular season next week versus rival Washington State Cougars.
