Dedicated to the HATRED of all things trOJan



Painting by numbers — Rosen-to-Duarte draws 116 yards and 2 TD’s, 3 different Bruin Running Backs etch TD’s, and the Bruin Defense creates 4 Turnovers and gives up 0 points to help sculpt UCLA’s looting of Oregon State 41-0

On Saturday afternoon in Corvallis, under a barrage of constant showers, the Bruins were Golden. On Offense, Defense, and Special Teams, UCLA thoroughly outplayed Oregon State, to triumph easily, 41-0. After a slow start that led to a scoreless first quarter, the Bruins exploded for 24 points in the second quarter. That landslide of points included two Touchdown passes from Josh Rosen to Thomas Duarte, who finished with 6 receptions for 116 yards. Despite the rain and the wet ball, Rosen was sharp for most of the afternoon, going 22-for-33 for 333 yards. The Bruins were also able to RUN on the Beavers, as Paul Perkins gained 89 yards and Soso Jamabo gained 90. Each of them also ran for a TD, as did Nate Starks.

In the third quarter, the Bruins added 17 more to the 24-0 lead. With a 41-point lead, the Bruins took out most of the starters, and cruised to a victory, not scoring at all in the fourth quarter.

The Offense was stellar for that middle 30 minutes, and the Special Teams also contributed, with Kickoff Touchbacks, solid Punting, two made Field Goals, and a nice Kickoff Return to start the second half. But it was the injury-depleted DEFENSE that was the real story of the game. Snagging 4 Turnovers allowed the Offense to get rolling and keep rolling. Kenny Young forced a fumble, which was recovered by Jacob Tuioti-Mariner (according to ESPN, despite the Pac-12 TV announcer saying Randall Goforth); And Randall Goforth, John Johnson, and Jaleel Wadood all picked off OSU passes. In addition, the D bottled up the Beavers, giving up only 2 or 3 big plays all game. The D leaders on this day were Linebacker Jayon Brown, who was all over the field, and Takkarest McKinley, who pressured the QB repeatedly, and logged 2 Sacks.

This was the Bruins’ first Road Shutout since 1987, and they have now won 13 of their last 14 Road games. They are now 7-2 on the season, with the dangerous aerial attack of Washington State coming to the Rose Bowl on Saturday night. Three straight tough games coming up, and while the OSU beatdown was impressive, there is a World of Difference between the Beavers and the rest of the teams on the schedule.

Speaking of impressive, here are 68 more photos of the illustrious UCLA Spirit Squad.
