UCLA Comeback Falls Short
By Earl Heath, Contributing Sports Writer
The UCLA football team dug themselves a hole and nearly
came out of it.
With just over nine minutes into the game the Bruins trailed Oregon State by twenty-one points on its way to a 48-31 win.
The bright thing about the Bruins were they fought back and at one point outscored the Beavers 31-10.
Austin Burton got his first start subbing for the injured Darian Thompson Robinson. Burton threw 236 yards and a touchdown while going 27 of 41 with no interceptions.
The 6-2 197 pound redshirt sophomore showed signs of readiness as he scrambled several times for key yards.
Demetric Felton rushed for 111 yards on 11 carries including a 75 yarder for a score.
“There’s no one more disappointed than we are right now, so that’s part of the process and we have to work through it,” said UCLA Head Coach Chip Kelly. ”When you’re a young team your going to make some mistakes.”
OSU QB Jake Luton completed 18 of 26 passes for 285 yards and five touchdowns for the Beavers (1-5). Isaiah Hogkins had 10 catches for 123 yards and 3 touchdowns.
