Oregon State Vs. UCLA Recap: Beavers Rally From Early Deficit, Fall Just Short 27-19

The Oregon State Beavers entered Saturday's game against the UCLA Bruins with one goal on their minds: get a win. The team almost managed to do just that, rallying from an 18-point deficit and pulling within a few plays of a comeback victory before ultimately falling 27-19.

The Beavers scored the game's first points on a 25-yard field goal by kicker Trevor Romaine in the first quarter, but then went on to watch the Bruins pile on three straight touchdowns to take a commanding 21-3 lead. Oregon State scored in the closing seconds of the second half on an 85-yard punt return by Jordan Poyer to draw within 21-10 at halftime.

That play provided the Beavers with some much-needed momentum. The team marched down the field during the first drive of the second half and knocked in another field goal, this time from 30 yards out by Romaine. Quarterback Sean Mannion, who struggled in the second quarter with an interception and a fumble, redeemed himself with a 45-yard touchdown strike to Jordan Bishop on the very last play of the third quarter.

The Bruins fought back with a one-yard touchdown run by Anthony Barr in the fourth quarter, and that turned out to make all the difference in the end. Oregon State drove down the field with 6:15 left in the game but failed to convert on a 4th-and-8 at the UCLA 22-yard line to keep the drive alive. The Bruins took over with 2:12 to go and ran out the clock for their 27-19 victory.

Mannion ended the game with 287 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 24-of-40 passing. Jordan Stevenson led the running backs with 47 yards on the ground on seven carries while Markus Wheaton led all Beaver receivers with 83 yards on seven receptions.

Oregon State is now 0-3 on the season and 0-1 in Pac-12 play. The Beavers face Arizona State on the road next week. 


Oregon State Vs. UCLA Score Update: Mannion Throws Late Touchdown, Beavers Down 21-19 After Three Quarters

The Oregon State Beavers came out of halftime down 21-10 to the UCLA Bruins. The team knew they needed to rally in order to win the game and make some headway in the Pac-12, and they come away with a slight edge in the third quarter and a 21-9 deficit.

The Beavers got the ball to start the second half. They used a three-minute, 10-play drive to set up a 30-yard field goal by kicker Trevor Romaine.

Oregon State caught a nice break on the next drive, as the defense blocked a 39-yard field goal attempt by Bruins kicker Jeff Locke to reclaim possession at the Beaver 22-yard line.

Quarterback Sean Mannion gave the Beavers knew life at the end of the quarter with a 45-yard touchdown strike to Jordan Bishop. The Beavers failed to convert the two-point conversion but trail by just tow points heading into the fourth quarter.

Mannion has recorded 218 passing yards and one touchdown on 16-of-30 completions. He has tightened things up from his disastrous second quarter that saw him throw an interception and give away a fumble, which comes as good news to Beavers fans.

The ground game has produced only 78 yards so far and could prove instrumental in the fourth quarter as the offense looks to score. 


Oregon State Vs. UCLA Score Update: Mannion Struggles, Beavers Down 21-10 At Halftime

The Oregon State Beavers trail 21-10 at halftime against the UCLA Bruins. Oregon State has struggled on offense, unable to pound the ball or complete throws without a turnover of some sort hindering the way.

The Beavers opened the quarter with an ugly interception by quarterback Sean Mannion. The Bruins, who got the ball back at the Beaver 46-yard line, rushed the ball six times over the next seven plays and scored on a five-yard run by Bruins quarterback Richard Brehaut.

Bad luck struck again later in the period when Mannion fumbled the ball away on the Beaver four-yard line with under five minutes left in the period. The Bruins converted another touchdown on a four-yard run by Jordon Jones.

The Beavers do enter the locker room with some momentum, though. Jordan Poyer returned a Bruin punt with less than thirty seconds left for an 85-yard score.

Mannion has 128 passing yards and one interception on 9-of-18 passing. Terron Ward leads the Beavers ground game with 21 yards on 11 carries and James Rodgers reads OSU receivers with 48 yards on two receptions.

The Beavers will need to run the ball more effectively in the second half to mount a comeback. Oregon State will receive the opening kickoff in the second half.


Oregon State Vs. UCLA Score Update: Beavers Trail 7-3 After First Quarter

The Oregon State Beavers trail the UCLA Bruins 7-3 at the end of the first quarter. The Beavers ate up just over half of the quarter for their field goal, while the Bruins responded in less than two minutes with a touchdown.

UCLA received the opening kickoff but managed to advance the ball only 27 yards on six plays. Johnathon Franklin moved the chains well for the Bruins on the drive, but the Beaver defense made a stop on 3rd-on-10 to force the punt.

The Beavers then put together a 17-play drive that resulted in the aforementioned field goal. Quarterback Sean Manninon passed for 75 yards on five-of-eight completions while running back Terron Ward recorded 13 yards on eight carries. Ward will need to do better and average more than two yards per carry to keep the chains moving over the next three quarters.

Kicker Trevor Roamine hit a 25-yard field goal with just under three minutes left in the period to give the Beavers the game's first score and an early lead.

The Bruins, however, came right back behind the arm of Richard Brehaut. He used a huge 62-yard completion to Josh Smith and a 22-yard touchdown pass to Taylor Embree to give UCLA the 7-3 lead. 

The Beavers open the second quarter with possession.

Last time these two teams met: Last year, UCLA kicked a last second field goal in the Rose Bowl to edge the Beavers 17-14. That loss eventually was the difference for Oregon State with regards to bowl eligibility. If the Beavers want to get back to a bowl game this year, they'll have to win this matchup.

Oregon State vs. UCLA: James Rodgers, Joe Halahuni To Return To Action Saturday

The Oregon St. Beavers will get a much-needed injection of offense Saturday when James Rodgers returns to the field against the UCLA Bruins on Saturday afternoon. Rodgers has spent almost an entire year rehabbing from a knee injury he suffered against the Arizona Wildcats last October, and he's finally rehabbed to the point that he's ready to see action again. Tight end/H-back Joe Halahuni is also expected to return, which should give Oregon State two of their most potent weapons to deal with for Pac-12 defenses.

Oregon State's offense was never the same after losing Rodgers last season (the Beavers lost five of their last seven games), and the Beavers offense has looked absolutely horrid in its first two games of the season, losing in an upset at home to Sacramento State and then getting blanked in Camp Randall against Wisconsin. Sean Mannion is now the new quarterback, replacing incumbent Ryan Katz, and he should be happy to see two of the most productive playmakers for the Beavers back on the field. UCLA's defense better be on their toes, because this isn't going to be the same anemic Oregon State offense that hit the field the first two weeks of the season.
