Beavers let lead slip away, rally to score late in win over UCLA

The Oregon State Beavers were dominant in building a 16-point 4th quarter lead, but needed a late touchdown to beat UCLA 26-19 in Pac-10 conference football action at Reser Stadium in Corvallis, Oregon Saturday.

The Beavers led 3-0 after one, thanks to Justin Kahut's 48-yard field goal 4:25 into the game, then stretched the lead to 6-0 on a Kahut 42-yarder with 5:56 left in the 2nd quarter. Oregon State flashed it's razzle-dazzle "Wild Beaver" formation late in the half, as Jacquizz Rodgers threw the first pass of his collegiate career, a 14-yard scoring strike to Brady Camp. Kahut's PAT made it 13-0 with 1:12 left, then on the last play of the half, Kahut drilled a 27-yard field goal, giving Oregon State a 16-0 halftime lead.

The Bruins broke the shut out bid 5:16 into the second half, getting a 24-yard field goal from Kai Forbath, cutting the Beaver lead to 16-3.

Early in the 4th, it appeared that Oregon State was on cruise control, with a 31-yard field goal from Kahut giving them a 19-3 lead with 10:10 to go. However, the Reser Stadium faithful got pretty silent, as UCLA roared back to tie the game. Kevin Prince hooked up with Nelson Rosario on a 58-yard catch and run touchdown, then again on the two-point conversion 8:39 left, making it 19-11. The Bruins found themselves knocking on the door again, after a 45-yard completion from Prince to Rosario gave UCLA a first down at the Beaver 4. The Bruins nearly faltered, but Prince found Taylor Embree to the left for a 7-yard touchdown. Johnathan Franklin caught Prince's 2-point conversion pass and with 2:06 remaining in regulation, the game was tied 19-19. Oregon State showed great poise however, surviving a near interception, driving 71-yards for the winning score. After moving deep into UCLA territory, the Beavers sent James Rodgers around right end for 17-yards and a touchdown, with 44 seconds still to go. Kahut booted the PAT, giving Oregon State a 26-19 lead. The Bruins had one last chance, but a pass from the Beaver 28 netted little, time ran out and Oregon State breathed a huge sigh of relife, winning 26-19.

Sean Canfield was very solid state for the Beavers, going 25-of-34 passing for 314 yards. And, not surprisingly, the Rodgers Brothers were spectacular. Jacquizz rushed 25 times for 111 yards, caught 7 passes for 91 yards and threw a 14-yard touchdown pass. James rushed 4 times for 17 yards and the winning touchdown, and caught 10 passes for 116 yards. Justin Kahut kicked 4 field goals and 2 PATs and Johnny Hekker punted 4 times for a 45-yard average, kicking 3 inside the 20. For UCLA, Kevin Prince was 22-of-34 passing for 322 yards and 2 touchdowns, Nelson Rosario caught 6 balls for 152 yards and a touchdown and Taylor Embree had 5 catches for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Oregon State had 461 net yards, 23 first downs, were 2-of-11 on third down and were penalized 10 times for 80 yards. The Bruins had 383 net yards, 21 first downs, were 5-of-15 on third down and 1-of-1 on 4th down. Neither team committed a turnover.

The Beavers are now 3-2 in the Pac-10, 5-3 overall, while UCLA slips to 3-5 overall and 0-5 in the Pac-10. Oregon State travels to Berkely next Saturday, November 7th, to play the Cal Bears. Kickoff is set for 7:00p.m. EST. The radio broadcast is on the Beaver Sports Network and Fox Sports has the telecast.
