Brett Hundley/Markus Wheaton: The Chandler connection

Brett Hundley/Markus Wheaton: The Chandler connection

UCLA redshirt freshman starting quarterback Brett Hundley is familiar with Oregon State senior wide receiver Markus Wheaton. Both played at the same high school in Chandler, Arizona. 

Hundley made the trip to Reser Stadium for the Bruins 27-19 win over the Beavers, but he didn't play. But that didn't stop him from razzing Wheaton.

UCLA's Johnathan Franklin leads the nation in rushing 180 yards per game. Meantime, Hundley has thrown for the second most yards in the Pac-12 this season with 827 yards and 8 passing touchdowns in three games. 

The Beavers (1-0) are early 11-point underdogs to No. 19 UCLA (3-0) for the 12:30 kickoff on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.

The Beavers last win in Pasadena was in 2008, 34-6, behind Sean Canfield, Sammie Stroughter and the Rodgers Brothers.

KVAL Sports will be in LA with the Beavers beginning Friday.
