UCLA Bruins beat Arizona Wildcats, 34-16

A win against the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday put the UCLA Bruins ahead in the crosstown rivalry with USC — the Trojans lost against the Utah Utes the same day.

Arizona led in passing yardage, notching three times as much as UCLA. The stats for rushing yards were flipped, with UCLA gaining almost three times as much on the ground as Arizona, in a game that saw both teams rack up penalties and penalty yardage.

Arizona scored first on a field goal, a 28-yard kick by Tyler Loop. UCLA topped that with a touchdown on a 3-yard pass from Dorian Thompson-Robinson to Greg Dulcich. Nicholas Barr-Mira kicked a successful point-after.

Arizona was again first to score in the second quarter, another field goal, this one by Lucas Havrisik. UCLA came back to score on a two-yard run by QB Thompson-Robins with a point after by Nicholas Barr-Mira. Arizona closed the half with a touchdown on a ten-yard pass from Jamarye Joiner to Michael Wiley. Loop successfully kicked a point after.

The score was a close 14-13 at halftime.

The teams traded field goals in the third quarter, but UCLA added a touchdown and point after before the quarter ended.

Fourth-quarter scoring was all UCLA, first a touchdown and point-after then a 43-yard field goal by Barr-Mira.

The next game for the Bruins will be on the road against Washington.
