CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State coach Mike Riley took this one for the team.

Following a 69-27 loss at home to Washington, none of the Beavers came out of the locker room to talk to the media.

"I actually told them to just let me talk and leave them out of this," Riley said.

Bishop Sankey ran for 179 yards and three touchdowns, Deontae Cooper ran for 166 yards and Dwayne Washington ran for 141 yards and two more scores, and the Huskies finished with 530 yards on the ground, second-most for a single game in school history.

Redshirt freshman Cyler Miles made his first college start and threw for 162 yards and a touchdown for Washington (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) which clinched a winning record with the victory. It was Washington's biggest winning margin over the Beavers since a 58-6 win in the 1991 national championship season.

"There's no getting around it," Riley said. "We just totally failed in all parts. We're all responsible."

Sean Mannion threw for 229 yards and a score but also threw three interceptions for the Beavers (6-5, 4-4), who lost their fourth straight. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak over the Huskies at Reser Stadium. And it was Oregon State's worst loss since falling 35-0 at Wisconsin in 2011.

Brandin Cooks had 117 receiving yards, which gave him 1,560 for the season and put him over Oregon State's single-season record of 1,532 set by Mike Hass in 2005. He already has the school record with 110 receptions.

Washington was without starting quarterback Keith Price, who injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the second quarter of the Huskies' 41-31 loss to UCLA last weekend. Miles had appeared in six previous games for the Huskies this season, throwing for 250 yards and three touchdowns.

Sankey scored on a 3-yard run to put Washington in front 7-0 early in the game. It was his 32nd career touchdown run, tying him for second on the Huskies' career list with Joe Steele. Sankey added a 5-yard scoring run less than three minutes later that extended Washington's lead.
