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.
