After a Sean Westgate interception of Sean Mannion, UCLA capitalized.
Only this time, on the ground.
After scoring quickly on their previous drive, the Bruins plodded it out for seven plays, running six times, including 26 yards for Derrick Coleman and 16 for Johnathan Franklin, before Richard Brehaut punched it in from five yards out on a beautiful fake.
Trevor Romaine’s 25-yard field goal gave Oregon State the 3-0 lead after a long drive stalled near the goal line.
The UCLA defense continually gave the Beavers the middle of the field, and first-time starter Sean Mannion capitalized, hitting James Rodgers for a 31-yard gain, Markus Wheaton for 10, 12 and 14 yards and Joe Halahuni for eight yards.
