Oregon State's fairy tale season hit a possible dam break Monday when it was revealed starting quarterback Sean Mannion would be lost for an indefinite period of time because of a knee injury. Mannion has completed 63% of his passes this season for 1,358 yards and seven touchdowns. Oregon State has been this year's biggest surprise, rebounding from a 3-9 season with a 4-0 start that has landed the school at No. 10 in this week's Associated Press poll. Mannion played the entire game Saturday in Oregon State's 19-6 win over Washington State but was intercepted three times.

USC at OREGON STATE 6 p.m. today, at Corvallis, Ore. (ESPN2) USC will try to end a three-game losing streak at Reser Stadium, where the Trojans have not won since 2004. Staff writer Gary Klein examines the story lines: Passing fancy Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion is the top passer in major-college football. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound junior has completed 69% of his passes and has thrown for 30 touchdowns, with only three interceptions. In last week's 20-12 loss to Stanford, Mannion completed 41 of 57 attempts for a season-low 271 yards and a touchdown.

In 2011, Oregon State lost its home opener to Sacramento State and never recovered. The Beavers got routed the next week at Wisconsin and finished with a record of 3-9. The same thing could have happened this year after Oregon State suffered another embarrassing opening-game loss to a lower-division opponent. This time it was Eastern Washington. This year, though, Oregon State has bounced back with four consecutive wins. Saturday's victory over Colorado in Corvallis was the easiest of the four as quarterback Sean Mannion and receiver Brandin Cooks dissected the Buffaloes' secondary in a 44-17 win. Mannion, who has been brilliant this year after winning the starting job from Cody Vaz, passed for six  touchdowns and 414 yards.

USC's passing game might be upgraded against Oregon State. Receiver Marqise Lee and tight end Xavier Grimble completed most drills Wednesday, and interim Coach Ed Orgeron said the juniors were probable for Friday night's Pac-12 Conference game at Corvallis, Ore. Lee reinjured his left knee against Notre Dame on Oct. 19 and sat out last week's victory over Utah. The reigning Biletnikoff Award winner completed the majority of Wednesday's 90-minute workout, which was devoid of contact.

Bert Lee fought the best fight of his life and still lost. Lee, who lives in Riverside, works in Anaheim, and trains in Westminster, was hoping Monday's fight against Sean Mannion of Ireland would be a step toward bigger payoffs in the future. Instead, Lee is left to ponder an uncertain future, one clouded by the loss of a unanimous 10-round decision to Mannion in front of 1,621 fans at the Marriott Hotel in Irvine.

Quarterback Brett Hundley says he is ready . . . no matter what UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel decides to do with him. Richard Brehaut was named the starter for this week's game at Oregon State, and received a large chunk of preparation time Tuesday. But Hundley, a freshman, has also seen his workload increase, leaving open the question: Will he or won't he? Neuheisel is weighing whether to have Hundley redshirt this year. UCLA is 1-2, and whether Neuheisel will be back for his fifth year has been left undecided by Athletic Director Dan Guerrero . But Neuheisel takes himself out that equation, saying, "Every decision I make not only has to be what's best for our team, but what's best for the individual.

If you don't like Mike Riley you don't like ice cream or dogs. The man who could have been USC's coach at least once has comfortably settled into Corvallis, Ore. He is 60 now and the Pac-12's longest tenured coach entering his 13th year. Riley played for tough-guy Bear Bryant at Alabama, but he is really more like a teddy bear. While other coaches become more paranoid, closing down ranks and shuttering doors, Riley welcomes everyone into his practices. Last year, after Oregon State beat UCLA at the Rose Bowl, Riley treated the entire team to In-N-Out burgers.

UCLA plays Utah in Salt Lake City on Thursday night, and the Bruins are looking to end a string of poor showings in the state. Staff writer Chris Foster examines the story lines: Bad memory lane The answer is: receiver Derek Ayers. The question is: Who was the last player to score a touchdown for UCLA in the state of Utah? Ayers' 30-yard run on a reverse was the last score in the Bruins' 23-9 victory over Brigham Young in 1995. Since then, the Bruins have lost, 44-6 to Utah in 2007, 59-0 to BYU in 2008, and 31-6 to Utah in 2011.

Wisconsin quarterback Joel Stave is done for the season after breaking his left collarbone against Michigan State. Coach Bret Bielema announced the news Monday, two days after the Badgers' 16-13 overtime loss to the Spartans. Doctors determined the redshirt freshman would not need surgery to repair the injury. "It probably will be an eight-week recovery, which takes him out of the regular season," Bielema said. "There is an outside chance of something for the postseason, but that would be right on the edge of it. And everything, if it goes to plan, he should be 100% to go for spring ball.

Quarterback Sean Mannion will start for No. 7 Oregon State against Washington on Saturday, less than three weeks after undergoing knee surgery. Mannion missed two games after he was hurt in an Oct. 6 victory over Washington State in Seattle. The 6-foot-5 sophomore was injured on a handoff, and an MRI exam revealed the need for surgery to repair the meniscus in his knee. Cody Vaz started in Mannion's place and Oregon State has remained unbeaten, rising to 6-0 overall and 4-0 in the Pac-12.

So much for all the talk about the importance of being game-tested, especially at quarterback. Cody Vaz , a fourth-year junior, had played only briefly in five games during his college career, hadn't taken a single snap in a game since 2010, and hadn't started a game since high school. Yet, he was the starter for No. 10 Oregon State on Saturday because Sean Mannion is out indefinitely with a knee injury. The opponent, on the road in Provo, Utah: Brigham Young, which was third in scoring defense and fifth in overall defense among the Football Bowl Subdivision's 120 teams.
