UCLA appears to be facing an Oregon State team chock-full of eager Beavers.
Oregon State has played only once in three weeks, as its opener against Nicholls State postponed. The Beavers are coming off a bye week.
“I love hitting people,” Oregon State defensive end Dylan Wynn told the Oregonian. “I love just being on the field and not getting in trouble for hitting people. The more away from it you are, the more you want it.’’
Oregon State manhandled Wisconsin, 10-7, in its only game. The Beavers held the then-13th-ranked Badgers to 207 yards.
But are the Beavers any good? The only reference point is Wisconsin, which was dropped from the rankings after an unimpressive 16-14 victory over Utah State last week. The Badgers struggled with Northern Iowa in their opener, winning 26-21.
