UCLA 41, Oregon State 0: Receiver Jordan Payton

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen completed 22 of 33 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns at Oregon State on Saturday, continuing his run of interception-free football. The true freshman was particularly effective in the second quarter, going 13 of 15 for 213 yards.

The performance marked his fourth 300-yard game of the season, tying him for third on the UCLA single-season list. Cade McNown had six such games in 1998 as a senior, while Brett Hundley had five in 2014 as a redshirt junior.

“He has full control,” receiver Jordan Payton said of Rosen. “He’s seen a lot of pressures, a lot of different schemes. Now, he has the reins. He’s playing outstanding. … He’s seen it all so far. It’s an honor to play with a kid that learns that fast and can definitely take the control as a freshman.”

Payton is taking aim at school records too. He made five catches for 71 yards against the Beavers, giving him 173 career receptions. He is third all-time behind Kevin Jordan (179, 1992-95) and Craig Bragg (193, 2001-04).

UCLA WR Jordan Payton: ‘We’re still in this. We control it.’

UCLA’s injury list continues to grow, but the team still pulled out a 35-31 win over Colorado on Saturday that kept it on a clear path to winning the Pac-12 South.

If the Bruins win their last four games — at Oregon State, at home against Washington State, and then at Utah and USC — they’ll clinch the division without worrying about any tiebreakers.

“It’s crazy,” said receiver Jordan Payton. “Today, I was looking at the games and stuff like that. I was like, ‘Wow, we’re 6-2. We’re still in this. We control it.’ What a great situation to be in for us, and for me personally, senior year.”
