A beautiful run-after-catch by Nelson Rosario culminated in a 58-yard touchdown catch and run to close the gap to 10, then Prince hit Rosario for the 2-point conversion.
UCLA blocked well in that drive for just the second sustained drive of the day.
It was the Bruins’ first offensive touchdown since the second quarter against Cal, a stretch of nearly 151 minutes.
Another Oregon State drived stalled in UCLA territory, as Justin Kahut banged in his fourth field goal of the day, putting the Beavers up 16. Of course, a 16-point lead against the UCLA offense is like a 116-point lead against anyone else.
* The offensive line has been pitiful. You read it right: pitiful. There is absolutely zero consistency there, and guys are even getting run over.
* Compounded that with the fact that Kevin Prince seems hesitant to let it go early into man-on-man coverage, and the offense has been awful.
* This “creative” play-calling that UCLA started off with resulted in about five yards and nothing more.
* The defense is playing adequately, only burnt twice, on the Rodgers-to-Camp touchdown pass and on a 42-yard connection from Canfield to James Rodgers.
* Some sad stats: UCLA outgained 248-86; UCLA 18 rushing yards; UCLA four fumbles; UCLA three sacks.
* UCLA playing down 16 into the third quarter does not inspire positive thoughts.
