CORVALLIS, OREGON—It was a deluge of rain and points as UCLA trounced the Oregon State Beavers 41-0. The Bruins have impressively won 13 out of their last 14 games away from the Rose Bowl. They controlled this game from start to finish in spite of a scoreless first quarter.
UCLA Quarterback Josh Rosen continued to live up to all of the preseason promise that has accompanied the freshman from Bellflower. He finished with 22 completions out of 33 attempts for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and has not thrown an interception in 123 attempts. And all of this while not playing in the fourth quarter. The defense was the true star of this game, pitching the shutout and forcing three interceptions and creating havoc all day for the Beavers in the slick rainy conditions.
The Bruins improved to 7-2 while still controlling their own destiny in the tough PAC-12 south division. The next three games are at home versus Washington State, then on the road against Utah and then the University of Southern California.
The Bruins wore their helmets emblazoned with the red, white and blue and some players sporting the undershirt camouflage style associated with the armed forces. This was in honor of Veterans Day, and looked as good as UCLA played. This was the third win in a row for this resilient bunch, and seem to be playing their best football of the year.
Come on out and support our team when they return to the Rose Bowl for the final time this year Saturday, November 14 with kickoff slated for 7:45 p.m. They will be facing the Washington State Cougars who have an identical record to the Bruins, and will be hungry for the victory. Expect a close battle between two very evenly matched teams and as always GO BRUIN NATION!
