Because of injuries this season, the quarterback position at Oregon State has been a revolving door -- although there have only been two people going in and out of that door. This week, sophomore Sean Mannion is coming out the other side.

In what was an expected decision, Oregon State coach Mike Riley confirmed that Mannion would be starting over junior Cody Vaz.

Vaz has not been practicing this week after suffering an ankle injury in last week's loss to Stanford.

Of course, starting is nothing new for Mannion. He started the first four games of the season before tearing his meniscus. He missed two games before returning, but threw four interceptions in his return against Washington. Since then, Vaz has been Oregon State's starter.

This season, Mannion has thrown for 1,579 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions in all or part of six games.
