    UCLA 8 Washington 31

    In their first game under their new coach, Coach Timpegoose, the UCLA Bruins really struggled. The main struggles were on offense, where the Bruins were held scoreless until late in the 4th quarter, and the offense also gave up 14 of the 31 points scored by Washington. The Bruins defense played decent in the first half, only allowing 7 points, but then sort of fell apart in the second half.

    The scoring didn't kick off until 2:12 left in the first half, when halfback Demetrius Bronson, who is filling in for the injured Chris Polk, punched in a 2 yard touchdown run. UCLA had mulitple drives stall out around midfield in the first half, and was forced to punt on all of them.

    The second half was a little bit more eventful, for the Huskies at least. With 1:30 left in the 3rd quarter, defensive end Pete Galbraith intercepted a Kevin Prince pass and returned it 39 yards for the score. Prince was hit on the throw and threw up a duck to make for an easy interception. 13 seconds later, after a fumble on the ensuing kickoff by the Bruins, Jack Locker hooked up with D'Andre Goodwin for a 26 yard pass to give the Huskies a comfortable 21-0 lead going into the 3rd quarter. After another short drive by the Bruins, Washington was able to drive down to the 27 yard line, before having to settle for an Eric Folk field goal. With 4:21 left in the game UCLA would finally get back on the board, scoring on a 7 yard pass from Prince to wideout Jerry Johnson in the back of tthe endzone. They would complete the 2 point conversion to make the score 24-8 and keep the game alive. After stopping Washington two more times the Bruins were beginning to move the ball again, until linebacker Cort Dennison tipped the ball to himself 3 times then proceeded to return the interception 33 yards to seal the game for the Huskies.

    For the Bruins, quarterback Kevin Prince went 14/37 for 206 yards 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions. Jordan Franklin struggled to get anything going on the ground, with only 14 yards on 12 carries. Wide receiver Jerry Johnson and tight end botht had 4 catches, for 69 and 68 yards respectively. Johnson also added in the lone TD for the Bruins.

    For the Huskies, quarterback Jake Locker had a big game, going 23/36 for 311 yards and 1 touchdown. Halfback Demetrius Bronson had 22 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown. Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse led the way for Washington, with 7 catches for 82 yards.

    The Bruins fall to 4-6 and have a bye next week before traveling to Arizona State. They need to win out to become bowl eligible.

    The Huskies improve to 3-7 and travel to Cal next week.

    The Bruins lost any hope they had of becoming bowl eligible with a loss this week against the Sun Devils. Quarterback Kevin Prince threw a whopping 5 interceptions, and most of them killed drives in Sun Devil territory. The Bruins also struggled terribly with tackling, and other fundamentals such as pass and run blocking. According to Coach Timpegoose "We just need to get back to basics, and learn how to play football again. All of these silly mental errors are killing us as a team. Now that we're not bowl eligible, we will just be looking to finish the season out with a win, and build momentum going into next season."
