THE LINE

The 2009 tilt between UCLA and Oregon State marks the fourth straight time the Beavers have been favored to win. In the last 10 matchups between the Bruins and Beavers pronosticagors have favored OSU five times and UCLA five times.

Despite the predicted victor being split, the Beavs have struggled defeating UCLA as the Bruins a 39-14-4 advantage, including 12-7-1 in Corvallis, and have won seven of the last ten.

OSU's two wins this decade vs. the Bruins (also won in 2000 in L.A.) are the fewest against any other Pac-10 team (did not play in 2003 and '04). OSU is also trying to break a three-game home losing streak to UCLA in which it has given up a combined 121 points.

Even head coach Mike Riley has had issues with the Bruins, breaking a personal 10-game skid to the powdered blue club - 0-5 at OSU (previous to last year), 0-4 at USC as offensive coordinator and 0-1 at California while a graduate assistant in 1975.

The Beavers are 3-3 against the spread this season beating the spread in their last three games.
