No. 18 UCLA improved to 8-2 with a 44-30 win over Washington, who fell to 6-4. The Bruins controlled the game throughout and never received an upset bid from the Huskies.
Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley looked fantastic as he passed for 302 yards and two touchdowns on 29-of-36 passing, and he ran for another two to go with 18 rushing yards to keep himself in the discussion as a dark-horse Heisman candidate. Running back Paul Perkins ran for 98 yards on 19 carries.
Kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn also performed greatly as he made three field goals to go with five extra points.
For the Huskies, quarterback Cyler Miles was kept in check by the UCLA defense as he threw for 155 yards and an interception on 15-of-25 passing.
However, he performed well in the running game by rushing for 62 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. Linebacker Shaq Thompson continued to be a multi-talented player as he led the Huskies in rushing with 100 yards on 16 carries.
