UCLA Vs. Oregon State Final Score: Bruins Lose 27-20

The Oregon State Beavers beat the UCLA Bruins, 27-20, upsetting the No. 19 team with a defensive gameplan that shut down Johnathan Franklin.

It was their second upset of a ranked team, having beaten Wisconsin in their season opener. Sean Mannion drove the offense behind a productive passing game, connecting with Brandin Cooks and Markus Wheaton, both of whom had more than 150 yards receiving.

UCLA struggled to move the ball for the entire game, punting on eight out of 14 drives. Brett Hundley went 27-for-42 for 372 yards, but the Bruins were 2-for-15 on third down. Franklin collected only 45 yards on 12 carries, and the UCLA offense failed to achieve the tempo it had in previous weeks.

It was the opposite for Oregon State. UCLA's defense picked up a fumble and had an interception, but they had trouble with Beavers receiving the ball in space and gave up several big plays over the middle. The Beavers had a patient, balanced attack and it produced results.

Box Score Hero: Mannion carried Oregon State, going 25-for-35 for 379 yards. Storm Woods added a strong rushing attack, picking up 96 yards on 21 carries.

Rankings Ramifications: Ranked No. 19, UCLA will certainly see a drop in the upcoming poll. After upsetting two ranked teams in two games, Oregon State has earned their way into the top 25.

But Did They Cover? Favored by 8, UCLA more than failed to cover.

UCLA Vs. Oregon State: Adams Is Bruins' Only Major Injury

The Oregon State Beavers have played only one game thanks to a weather cancellation and a bye, but that one game was a 10-7 defensive domination of the Wisconsin Badgers in Corvallis two weekends ago. That's what the UCLA Bruins have to go off of in preparing for the Beavers leading up to Saturday afternoon's kickoff at the Rose Bowl.

"Little bit different type of game than we had on Saturday night," Bruins coach Jim Mora said Monday. "Houston winged it around quite a bit. Oregon State is a little more balanced, a little more power run game... but what really stands out is the way their defense played against Wisconsin."

UCLA is 3-0 and ranked No. 19 in the nation. The Bruins are feeling good about themselves, but the Pac-12 season is a different animal. The key matchup could be UCLA workhorse running back Johnathan Franklin against the Beavers' defensive front.

Mora said Monday that he is fine with any conference-mandated injury report, a major topic these days after Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said he'd consider it. Mora is used to it -- he coached in the NFL for years and was head coach at Atlanta and Seattle.

Mora said cornerback Ishmael Adams is out for the season and will have shoulder surgery on Friday. His recovery time is six to nine months, and the Bruins hope to get a medical redshirt for Adams, a freshman from Woodland Hills.
