Recap: UCLA vs. Oregon State

Pasadena, CA (Sports Network) - Sean Mannion completed 24-of-35 passes for 379 yards and two touchdowns as Oregon State knocked off the 19th-ranked UCLA Bruins, 27-20, at the Rose Bowl.

Brandin Cooks and Markus Wheaton combined for 325 yards and a pair of TDs on 15 receptions for the Beavers (2-0, 1-0 Pac-12), who showed no rust after two weeks off following a narrow season-opening win against Wisconsin.

Storm Woods added 96 yards and a rushing score on 21 carries for Oregon State, which snapped a two-game losing skid over their conference foes.

"It was a great job by our team. I thought it was a whole team effort and defensively again we were remarkable," said OSU head coach Mike Riley. "That was a really good group of offensive players and a good offensive scheme and I thought we just kept playing. When something bad happened, nobody blinked and somebody else made a play. I was just so proud of them for their resiliency, for playing hard and making plays to win the game."

Brett Hundley passed for 372 yards and one touchdown on 27-of-42 efficiency, also crossing the end zone on a rush for the Bruins (3-1, 0-1). Shaquell Evans posted 148 yards and a score on six receptions in defeat.

Jonathan Franklin was limited to 45 yards on 12 carries, after averaging 8.2 yards per tote through UCLA's first three games.

Ka'i Fairbairn's 35-yard field goal inside of two minutes remaining drew UCLA within 27-20, and the Bruins defense came up with a stop on 3rd-and-8 when it pushed Woods back for a loss of a yard.

A delay-of-game penalty on fourth down resulted in a punt, but the offense took over on their own 10 with just five seconds left. Hundley completed a pass to Jordon James but time ran out.

"That was a tough loss, obviously, but our hats are off to Oregon State," said Bruins head coach Jim Mora. "That's a good defensive football team and a well- coached football team and they beat us. We have lots of lessons to learn from this. We'll see how we handle some adversity. We got knocked back a little bit, so it'll be a great lesson for our young men to respond to this. I expect that they will respond in the proper way, and we'll be ready to go next week."

Trevor Romaine's 22-yard make put Oregon State ahead and was the lone score of the opening quarter.

Fairbairn's 22-yard field goal tied the score, but OSU responded on its ensuing drive, needing just one play -- a 75-yard strike from Mannion to Cooks -- to assume a 10-3 advantage.

Mannion's 42-yard pass to Wheaton put the visitors ahead by a 17-3 count, but Hundley laid out a perfect ball down the right sideline for Evans, who ran the rest of the way for a 65-yard connection and 17-10 game at the half.

Woods' two-yard dash to paydirt capped an 88-yard, 13-play sequence and put Oregon State ahead 24-10 with 1:21 left in the third quarter.

Hundley responded on the Bruins' next possession with a one-yard run and it was 24-17 with 14:01 to play.

Romaine hit from 17 yards out to complete OSU's next touch for a 27-17 score.
