Oregon State Upsets Cardinal, 26-12

David Moran threw for a touchdown and ran for another as Oregon State snapped a 15-game losing streak with a 26-12 Pac-10 Conference victory over Stanford.

The Beavers (1-5, 1-3 Pac-10), who had the longest losing streak in Division I-A, won for the first time since a 14-7 victory over Idaho in the first week of the 1995 season. They also snapped a 12-game conference losing streak.

It was Oregon State's first victory over a Pac-10 foe since a 21-3 victory over Washington State on November 12th, 1994. The longest losing streak in Division I-A now belongs to UNLV, which has dropped 10 in a row.

Moran's 17-yard touchdown pass to DeShawn Williams snapped a tie and gave Oregon State a 19-12 lead with 1:28 to play in the first half. After a scoreless third quarter, Darron Kirkman scampered 28 yards with 4:27 to play to cap the scoring.

Stanford (2-4, 1-2) had taken a 7-6 lead on Chad Hutchinson's 57-yard TD pass to Mike Mitchell 43 seconds into the second quarter. The Beavers went up 12-7 on Moran's three-yard run, but Tim Smith intercepted Moran's pass attempt on a two-point conversion and raced 100 yards to make it 12-9.

Stanford's Kevin Miller then kicked a 36-yard field goal to forge a 12-12 tie with 2:28 left in the first half.
