UCLA in control at Oregon State

By Ted Miller

The Desperation Bowl didn't start well for UCLA, but the Bruins have asserted themselves on both sides of the ball at Oregon State and lead 21-3.

Oregon State can't run the ball -- see 13 carries, 16 yards -- and that's putting a lot of pressure on quarterback Sean Mannion.

Meanwhile, Richard Brehaut is making a statement as UCLA's quarterback. He's completed 4 of 5 for 108 yards with a 22-yard touchdown to Taylor Embree. He's also rushed for a touchdown.

James Rodgers, by the way, has two receptions for 48 yards. And a 15-yard personal foul penalty.
