CORVALLIS, Ore. — Chance Nolan passed for 302 yards and two touchdowns, and B.J. Baylor ran for a career-high 171 yards and three scores to lead Oregon State to a 45-27 victory over the University of Hawaii on Saturday night.

Nolan replaced starter Sam Noyer late in the third quarter of the Beavers’ season-opening loss at Purdue last week and provided a spark. Coach Jonathan Smith opted to stay with the hot hand against Hawaii (1-2).

Good decision.

Nolan completed his first 13 passes as the Beavers (1-1) took a 24-7 halftime lead at the break. He finished 21 of 29 and also ran for 38 yards.

“I did think he was sharp,” Smith said. “We’re going with stuff he’s really comfortable with and it showed up. He came out really effective.”

It didn’t take long for Oregon State to retain control in the second half.

Linebacker Riley Sharp intercepted Chevan Cordeiro’s short pass over the middle on the first play of the third quarter at Hawaii’s 30-yard line.

Baylor’s 30-yard touchdown run up the middle on the ensuing play gave OSU a 31-7 advantage.

But the Rainbow Warriors responded with consecutive touchdowns to get back in the game.

Calvin Turner Jr. scored on a 1-yard run. Baylor’s fumble at the Beavers’ 36-yard line set up a 10-yard touchdown pass to Nick Mardner, and Hawaii trailed 31-20 at 3:46 of the third quarter.

UH linebacker Darius Muasau was called for targeting tackling Nolan on an 11-yard run, and that penalty helped ignite a drive that culminated with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Gould on the first play of the fourth quarter, giving the Beavers a 38-20 lead.

Oregon State amassed 558 yards and had excellent balance with 302 yards in the air and 256 on the ground.

“Defensively we were just terrible,” Hawaii coach Todd Graham said. “So frustrating defensively. That was the difference in the game.”

The Rainbow Warriors begin Mountain West Conference play next Saturday against San Jose State at the Clarence T.C. Ching Complex.
