Oregon State Overwhelms UCLA

Oregon State got off to a fast start Saturday night against UCLA, and then the Beavers not only repelled the Bruins rally, they pulled away to win 48-31 in the Rose Bowl.

Senior quarterback Jake Luton was spectacular in leading the winning effort, throwing for 5 touchdowns and running for a 6th to cap a 14 play drive that burned nearly 7 minutes, and all 3 of UCLA’s timeouts, to seal the win. Luton also “ran” (got behind a pair of o-linemen and stretched out his 6’6″ frame) for a yard on a 3rd & 1 and a 4th & 1 to keep key drives alive.

Luton threw for 285 yards, completing 18 of 26 passes.

The 6 touchdowns accounted for tied the Oregon State game record, joining Sean Mannion, Derek Anderson, and Terry Baker.

Bruins Beat Beavers In Ugly Bowl

UCLA snapped their 4 game losing streak Saturday night with an ugly 38-24 win at the Rose Bowl over Oregon State, in a game that “featured” 21 accepted penalties, only some of which were bogus, 12 of which were on the Beavers, and a half dozen turnovers, 2 of which were pick-6s.

Oregon State fans fantasizing about pulling off the upset, never mind covering the game’s double digit spread, got their hopes up early, when Manase Hungalu scooped up Soso Jamabo’s fumble on the second play of the game, and took it back to the UCLA 4 yard line. 2 plays later, Artavis Pierce, making his first collegiate start in place of Ryan Nall, who was a pregame scratch, punched it in for a 7-0 lead not a minute and a half into the game.

Those hopes were quickly dashed, as UCLA proceeded to drive the field for a game tieing touchdown by Bolu Olorunfunmi, then capitalized on a Jordan Villamin fumble to take the lead on Jalen Starks’ score, and capped off the quarter by blocking a Nick Porebski punt, which Jordan Lasley took 53 yards the other way for another touchdown.

That made it 21-7 UCLA, and the Bruins kept the Beavers at arm’s length the rest of the way.
