Oregon State @ UCLA Video Highlights

Dietrich Riley set the tone for the defense with this combination de-cleater / helmet flying / bone-crushing hit on Jacquizz Rodgers who ended the day with a pedestrian 63 rushing yards.

On the first drive of the game Richard Brehaut dispelled any notion that he is unable to run the ball by rushing for 45 yards and a touchdown. Facing a 3rd and 3 situation, Brehaut improvises and scampers for 21 yards:

Brehaut fakes me out and keeps it for 11 yards:

The Beaver defense still couldn't believe Brehaut would keep running the ball as he scores on a 7-yard keeper. Nice to see the acknowledgement of the coaches as Brehaut returns to the sideline.

Unfortunately, the Bruins offense couldn't match that 1st drive until the 3rd quarter, down 14-7. Key for the drive was Brehaut's 3rd and 5 completion to Josh Smith:

It left the Bruins 1-yard short, but the decision was immediate to go for it on 4th down. Malcolm Jones blasted 3 yards for the 1st down at the 18:

Brehaut used his legs when nothing was available through the air, here gaining 9 yards:

Brehaut continued to show the ability to scramble and make plays when things broke down, like this 12-yard shovel pass to Cory Harkey for a key 12-yard gain on 3rd and 11:

Johnathan Franklin bounced back from his earlier fumble, scoring the tying touchdown on this one-yard run into the end zone:

Last, but not least, with one second left in the game, Kai Forbath showed why he's the best kicker in the country. Forbath shrugged off two earlier misses and drilled a game-winning 51-yard field goal that would have been good from 60 [Video clip from KABC Sports Zone]:

It seems forever since I felt so good leaving the Rose Bowl. Yeah, we had chances earlier in the game to avoid having the result come down to the last second play. But our team overcame itself (offense, defense, special teams, coaching staff) as well as our opponent and never quit. Hopefully, that will propel us through the next 3+ games.

Go Bruins!
