The UCLA Bruins and Oregon State Beavers historically speaking are two of the oldest and most successful football programs in the Pac-12 Conference. They have met on the gridiron 64 times since 1930, with UCLA holding a distinct advantage with a 43-17-4 record against Oregon State. In recent years, the rivalry has been much more competitive in comparison to the earlier years of the series between the two schools.
Oregon State both from 1999-2000 and 2008-2009 won two straight games against the Bruins and that made this rivalry more competitive as UCLA for example at times has dominated in this series as the Bruins won five straight against the Beavers from 2001 to 2007 for example.
Unfortunately, this series between these two schools that dates back over 90 years is more than likely to end after this season, as UCLA will no longer be a member of the Pac-12 Conference starting the 2024 football season.
