Brett Hundley’s career night highlights UCLA win over Cal

Brett Hundley threw three touchdown passes and notched a career-high 410 passing yards as UCLA overcame some sloppy early play to dominate California, 37-10, on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl.

The Bruins led, 24-10, at the half and then shut out the Bears in the second half while looking downright sharp compared to the first half, when they incurred eight penalties. UCLA, the nation’s leader in penalties per game, had just one penalty after halftime.

Despite showing signs of life in the first half, Cal (1-5) never really had a chance against the No. 11 Bruins (5-0). The Bears are as banged up as any team in the Pac-12 and their lack of quality depth on defense, in particular, was glaring. Worse, Cal’s freshman quarterback, Jared Goff, appears to be hitting the rookie wall. He threw for 215 yards with no touchdowns against UCLA, well below his averages coming into the game.

Hundley had no problem picking up yards against the hapless Bear secondary. He completed passes to 10 different receivers, with Devin Fuller leading the way with six catches for 98 yards. UCLA’s leading rusher, Jordon James, was out with an injury, so Hundley’s career day came at a good time — the Bruins managed just 78 net yards on the ground.

UCLA is now 5-0 for the first time since 2005, but the tough part of the schedule looms. A Stanford team that is no doubt ornery coming off a loss to Utah will host the Bruins next Saturday. Then a trip to Eugene comes after.

How good are the Bruins? ¬†We’ll soon find out.

    Was at that UCLA game today. Had a good time, good to go home with a W.

    Still, at this point I instinctively cringe whenever I see a yellow flag go flying, because it’s probably going against the Bruins.

    the Pac 12 is strong this year, and unlike those boys in the southeast, no one can duck out of a game vs another powerhouse team for six years and live to tell about it

    UCLA will play at Stanford next Saturday, in a game that lost a little bit of luster with the Cardinal losing to Utah on Saturday….if UCLA survives that game, they get a trip to Autzen stadium to take on the high octane Oregon Ducks on Oct 26.

    Stanford has their toughest stretch coming up, vs UCLA, at sneaky power passing team Oregon St and then a Thursday Nov 7 home game vs Oregon.

    if the Ducks get by Wazzu, UCLA and Stanford, then they will be in the drivers seat for the pac12 north title with only Utah, @Arizona and civil war vs Oregon state left…..and then a possible rematch against UCLA

    still a lot of football left to play in the pac.
