The visitors scored on the very next play. Trailing14-0 in the first quarter, UCLA then suffered a bad snap inpunt formation, resulting in a 34-yard loss, and USCscored two plays later. The Bruins broke the ice and scoredon a Manuel White seven-yard run early in the second quarter.Down 21-7, a bad exchange on the snap to the quarterbackinside their own 20-yard line cost the Bruins seven morepoints. Three of USC's four first half scoring drives wereless than 35 yards. When USC scored on its first second halfpossession to make it 35-7, it became too much for the Bru5ins to overcome. Quarterback Drew Olson became justthe third UCLA true freshman quarterback to start the USCgame (Tom Ramsey and Cade McNown were the others).

In last year's game played at the Coliseum, USC scored touchdownson its first three possessions and added a field goalon its fourth on the way to a 47-22 win.

The win was even more impressive considering that leadingrusher Maurice Drew did not play and that receiversCraig Bragg, Tab Perry and Marcedes Lewis played butdid not make a single reception between them.Oregon, which had lost to California by one point a weekearlier to end a four-game winning streak, moved 77 yardson just five plays to take a 7-0 lead.

Justin Medlock kicked a 52-yard field goal on the first drive ofthe second half, but Oregon responded with a touchdownand a field goal to cut the lead to 24-20. But UCLA answeredwhen, on third down, Drew Olson and Junior Taylor connectedon a slant pass and Taylor broke away and raced downthe right sideline for an 83-yard touchdown, the seventhlongest pass play in school history.

Oregon climbed to within five points (31-26) when JustinPhinisee returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown andOregon's two-point attempt was stopped at the goal line.

Again UCLA responded, moving from its own 23 to theOregon 32-yard line while taking 5:34 off the clock andforcing the Ducks to use their remaining timeouts. Thedrive culminated with Medlock's 50-yard field goal, givingthe Bruins an eight-point lead with 2:08 remaining.On the ensuing drive, Oregon reached the UCLA 40-yardline but three straight incompletions gave the Bruins theball and their third road victory of the year.

Offensively, UCLA rolled up 442 yards -- 227 on the ground(250 excluding a 23-yard loss on a punt play) and 215 inthe air. True freshman Chris Markey, starting in place ofDrew, ran for a career-high 131 yards on 23 attempts andalso made five receptions for 84 yards. Including his 23-yard kickoff return, he accounted for 238 all-purposeyards.

His touchdown pass to Taylor was the longestof his career and was his 18th this season, the fifth-besttotal in school history. Taylor made two receptions for 97yards and one touchdown and White and Pitre also madetwo receptions.

The offensive line also played extremely well. Facing one ofthe top defensive fronts in the country (Oregon was allowing114.3 yards rushing and 314.6 yards overall), theline helped UCLA rush for 250 yards (excluding the 23-yard special teams loss) and allowed Olson time to makeplays (he was sacked three times).

Defensively, UCLA allowed just 337 yards and two touchdownsto a team that had averaged 421.7 yards pergame. The Ducks had 77 yards on their first possessionand 260 yards on its last 12 drives. The Bruin defense alsoscored once (the interception by Trey Brown) and made akey stand in the third quarter holding Oregon to six yardsand a field goal after a fumbled punt snap gave the Ducksthe ball at the Bruin 27-yard line.

Justin London led the Bruins with 10 tackles, including onesack and a second for loss. Spencer Havner had nine tackles(seven solos) and Ben Emanuel added seven. Jarrad Pagemade his third interception of the year to end a scoring threatand added six tackles, including one for loss and Trey Brownhad five tackles, one for loss, and his key interception.On special teams, Tab Perry returned five kickoffs for 68 yardsto become UCLA's career leader in both kickoff returnsand kickoff return yardage.

The visitors scored on the very next play. Trailing14-0 in the first quarter, UCLA then suffered a bad snap inpunt formation, resulting in a 34-yard loss, and USCscored two plays later. The Bruins broke the ice and scoredon a Manuel White seven-yard run early in the second quarter.Down 21-7, a bad exchange on the snap to the quarterbackinside their own 20-yard line cost the Bruins seven morepoints. Three of USC's four first half scoring drives wereless than 35 yards. When USC scored on its first second halfpossession to make it 35-7, it became too much for the Bru5ins to overcome. Quarterback Drew Olson became justthe third UCLA true freshman quarterback to start the USCgame (Tom Ramsey and Cade McNown were the others).

In last year's game played at the Coliseum, USC scored touchdownson its first three possessions and added a field goalon its fourth on the way to a 47-22 win.

The win was even more impressive considering that leadingrusher Maurice Drew did not play and that receiversCraig Bragg, Tab Perry and Marcedes Lewis played butdid not make a single reception between them.Oregon, which had lost to California by one point a weekearlier to end a four-game winning streak, moved 77 yardson just five plays to take a 7-0 lead.

UCLA tied the game at 7-7 when cornerback Trey Brownpicked off a pass and returned it 43 yards for a tying touchdown.With eight seconds remaining in the first quarter,Manuel White's three-yard touchdown run gave the Bruinsthe lead for good, 14-7. On their next possession, the Bruinsdrove 94 yards and White's four-yard run made the score21-7. UCLA led 21-10 at halftime.

Justin Medlock kicked a 52-yard field goal on the first drive ofthe second half, but Oregon responded with a touchdownand a field goal to cut the lead to 24-20. But UCLA answeredwhen, on third down, Drew Olson and Junior Taylor connectedon a slant pass and Taylor broke away and raced downthe right sideline for an 83-yard touchdown, the seventhlongest pass play in school history.

Oregon climbed to within five points (31-26) when JustinPhinisee returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown andOregon's two-point attempt was stopped at the goal line.

Again UCLA responded, moving from its own 23 to theOregon 32-yard line while taking 5:34 off the clock andforcing the Ducks to use their remaining timeouts. Thedrive culminated with Medlock's 50-yard field goal, givingthe Bruins an eight-point lead with 2:08 remaining.On the ensuing drive, Oregon reached the UCLA 40-yardline but three straight incompletions gave the Bruins theball and their third road victory of the year.

Offensively, UCLA rolled up 442 yards -- 227 on the ground(250 excluding a 23-yard loss on a punt play) and 215 inthe air. True freshman Chris Markey, starting in place ofDrew, ran for a career-high 131 yards on 23 attempts andalso made five receptions for 84 yards. Including his 23-yard kickoff return, he accounted for 238 all-purposeyards.

His touchdown pass to Taylor was the longestof his career and was his 18th this season, the fifth-besttotal in school history. Taylor made two receptions for 97yards and one touchdown and White and Pitre also madetwo receptions.

The offensive line also played extremely well. Facing one ofthe top defensive fronts in the country (Oregon was allowing114.3 yards rushing and 314.6 yards overall), theline helped UCLA rush for 250 yards (excluding the 23-yard special teams loss) and allowed Olson time to makeplays (he was sacked three times).

Defensively, UCLA allowed just 337 yards and two touchdownsto a team that had averaged 421.7 yards pergame. The Ducks had 77 yards on their first possessionand 260 yards on its last 12 drives. The Bruin defense alsoscored once (the interception by Trey Brown) and made akey stand in the third quarter holding Oregon to six yardsand a field goal after a fumbled punt snap gave the Ducksthe ball at the Bruin 27-yard line.

Justin London led the Bruins with 10 tackles, including onesack and a second for loss. Spencer Havner had nine tackles(seven solos) and Ben Emanuel added seven. Jarrad Pagemade his third interception of the year to end a scoring threatand added six tackles, including one for loss and Trey Brownhad five tackles, one for loss, and his key interception.On special teams, Tab Perry returned five kickoffs for 68 yardsto become UCLA's career leader in both kickoff returnsand kickoff return yardage.
