UCLA Football Clings On For High-Scoring Upset Win Over Washington


The Huskies made it close down the stretch, but the Bruins’ high-powered offense managed to eke one out and secure the victory at the Rose Bowl.

UCLA football (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) pulled off an upset win over No. 15 Washington (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) on Friday night, holding off a major comeback effort en route to a 40-32 victory. The Bruins led 40-16 at the start of the fourth quarter, only to watch that lead dissolve down to eight in the final minutes.

It took a third down strike from quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson to tight end Hudson Habermehl to ice it and keep the clock ticking once the Huskies had burned through their timeouts, just adding to the signal-caller’s big-time performance. With Thompson-Robinson leading the charge, the Bruins didn’t punt until there were fewer than eight minutes remaining in the final quarter.
