FINAL SCORE: UCLA 37, Cal 1o. The Bears (1-5, 0-3 Pac-12) remain winless against FBS teams since a year ago Sunday, when they won 31-17 at Washington State. No. 11 UCLA, which got a career-high 410 passing yards and 3 TDs from Brett Hundley, improved to 5-0, 2-0 in the Pac-12. Goff was 26 for 43 for 215 yards, by far his least-productive full-game performance.
THIRD QUARTER: UCLA 30, Cal 10. Two field goals by the Bruins and not much else here. Amazingly, UCLA has outscored its opponents 71-0 in the third quarter. The Bears hardly threatened that distinction. UCLA has a 398-201 yardage edge. Goff is 20 for 33 but for just 148 yards — 4.5 per attempt. Lasco has 39 rushing yards and six attempts. Hundley is 26 for 36 for 333 yards.
HALFTIME: UCLA 24, Cal 10. The Bears actually pulled within 17-10 after Daniel Lasco’s 6-yard TD run with 2:35 left in the half. The drive was aided by 3 UCLA penalties totaling 25 yards. UCLA then responded with a 73-yard TD drive, pushing the margin back to 14 points on a 27-yard TD pass from Brett Hundley to Thomas Duarte. UCLA outgained Cal 325-138 in the half. Goff was 14 for 24 for 117 yards. Hundley was 21 for 25 for 263 yards and two TDs. Cal’s ground game netted 21 yards on 14 tries. UCLA has outscored its opponents 65-0 in the third qtr of its first four games and gets the second-half kickoff.
END OF FIRST QTR: UCLA 10, Cal 0. Bruins outgained Cal 188-19 and had eight first downs to one for Cal. Bruins had the ball for 9:21 of the quarter. Brett Hundley was 11 for 12 for 150 yards. Jared Goff was 6 of 9 for 25 yards. Cal had minus-6 rushing yards in the qtr.
WELCOME: I’m here at the Rose Bowl for the late-night matchup between the Bears (1-4, 0-2) and the No. 11 Bruins (4-0, 1-0). A beautiful evening in Pasadena, but a late-arriving crowd so far at the cavernous facility.
I’ll provide a few highlights as I am able tonight, but deadlines will prevent me from being too detailed here. Enjoy.
