UCLA has risen from the dead. Again.

Kick Kai Forbath, the nation's best kicker, made a 51-yard field goal on the final play of the game to give the Bruins the 17-14 win.

Forbath had previously missed two field goals, which is nearly as shocking as the Bruins beating the previously surging Beavers.

UCLA improves to 4-5 overall and 2-4 in the Pac-10 and greatly improves its chances to earn bowl eligibility. It needs to win two of its final three games: at Washington on Thursday, at Arizona State on Nov. 26 and home against USC on Dec. 4.

The Bruins defense, dominated last weekend by Arizona, held Oregon State to just 267 total yards. Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for on 64 yards on 14 carries. He didn't score a rushing TD, which ended a streak of 12 consecutive games with one.

Entering the game, the Beavers, now 4-4 overall and 3-2 in the Pac-10, controlled their own Rose Bowl destiny. That's no longer the case.

If Arizona loses to Stanford, Oregon then could lose any of its final three games and still win the Pac-10.

The Beavers play host to Washington State next weekend.
