Keys To The Game

September 29, 2007|Chris Foster

1 Run or fall. When UCLA has the ball, the line matchup can be summarized this way: Immovable object vs. the sometimes irresistible -- sometime resistible -- force. Oregon State gives up only 29 rushing yards a game. UCLA has had two 300-yard rushing games and two duds.

2 Better to take than give away. Oregon has a minus-eight turnover ratio and had five interceptions and a fumble in a 44-32 loss to Arizona State last week. UCLA's defense has teetered but also created big turnovers, returning two interceptions for touchdowns.

3 Can Canfield connect, or will Ben be big? Oregon State quarterback Sean Canfield is coming off a forgettable performance against Arizona State; UCLA's Ben Olson is returning from a concussion. One of them can be a clear-headed winner today.

No. UCLA (3-1, 2-0) at Oregon State (2-2, 0-1) Today, 3:30 p.m. TV: FSN West Radio: 570
