UCLA Coasts to 41-0 Win at Oregon State


Wang, Jack, Daily News (Los Angeles, CA)


CORVALLIS, Ore. » In just one quarter Saturday, UCLA's defense forced nearly as many turnovers as it had in the past month.

That the Bruins were facing Oregon State certainly helped. Led by quarterback Nick Mitchell, starting in place of an injured Seth Collins, the Beavers showed exactly why they have yet to beat a Pac- 12 opponent under first-year head coach Gary Andersen.

With a few seconds left in the first quarter, Mitchell fumbled. Less than four minutes into the second quarter, he threw an ugly pass that Jaleel Wadood tipped to fellow safety Randall Goforth. And eight minutes after that, he threw a pass right into the hands of John Johnson, giving the sophomore cornerback his first college interception.

Those three turnovers at Reser Stadium helped jump-start a UCLA offense that scored four straight times before halftime en route to a 41-0 rout -- one that kept a Pac-12 South title within sight. Win its last three games, and the Bruins will clinch a spot in the Pac- 12 Championship on Dec. 5.

Although the competition left much to be desired, this was still the Bruins' first shutout since a 16-0 win over Oregon in 2007, and their first on the road since a 49-0 win at Stanford in 1987. No one on the UCLA roster was born before 1992.

A defense beset by injuries clamped down, allowing 71 rushing yards in the first quarter, but just 44 the rest of the way. The zero on the final scoreboard was a little bonus for the Bruins, especially after giving up a late field goal at UNLV back in September.

"Gotta finish it," said defensive end Takkarist McKinley. "Need that donut."

Added Wadood: "We had some young guys coming into the game. We were just like, 'Don't slack off.'"

In turn, the offense capitalized. A week after UCLA's defense endured a 120-play marathon against Colorado, the Bruins held the ball for 37 minutes. Two of their first four scoring drives covered less than 50 yards, but it was a 96-yard march that was truly impressive. …
