After beating BYU and Utah in consecutive weeks last October as a fill-in quarterback, Oregon State's Cody Vaz subsequently lost his job to original starter Sean Mannion, because of ineffectiveness.
The battle for the 2013 position will continue into August, OSU coach Mike Riley said this week, during the Pac-12's media teleconference wrapping up spring football.
"Neither one of those guys really surprised us in the spring, as far as being behind," said Riley, who described the competition as "real good for the Beavers."
Oregon State's first Pac-12 game comes earlier than usual this season. The Beavers will visit Utah on Sept. 14, after opening the season with home games against Eastern Washington and Hawaii.
