THE GAME: UCLA (3-1) at Oregon State (4-1), 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Reser Stadium. Radio: KEX (1190 AM). TV: ABC.
ON THE BEAVERS: It's a watershed game for the offensive line, which did a terrific job against Fresno State but was exposed by USC. The Beavers have won 19 of their last 21 games at Reser, but one of those losses came last year to the Bruins (38-7).
ON THE BRUINS: UCLA is similar to Southern Cal in some ways Ñ defensive-minded, physical, balanced on offense. Senior QB Cory Paus needs only 115 yards passing to surpass Tom Ramsey and move into second place on the UCLA career list behind West Linn's Cade McNown.
