The Oregon State Beavers play their first Pac-12 opponent of the season on Saturday as they head to Pasadena to take on the No. 19 UCLA Bruins at the Rose Bowl.
The Beavers are riding high after topping the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers 10-7 in their season opener last week after their Sept. 1 matchup with Nicholls State was postponed. They'll be looking to take out a ranked opponent for the second-straight week and crack the top 25 for themselves.
A key factor to Oregon State's success will be the play of quarterback Sean Mannion. He completed 62 percent of his passes for 276 yards and a touchdown against a stout Badgers defense last week, and will need a similar effort against the Bruins if they want to pull the upset on the road. They'll also have to figure out how to slow down UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin, who leads the nation with 541 rushing yards through three weeks of the season.
