The UCLA Bruins, albeit rather quietly, moved to 5-0 on the season with a dominating performance over the Cal Golden Bears at home inside the Rose Bowl by a score of 37-10.
Speaking of quietly, QB Brett Hundley once again displayed why he should be considered a legitimate Heisman contender with another amazing performance, and this time it was a personal best showing. Hundley finished the game 31-of-41 with a career-high 410 yards and three touchdowns.
All three of Hundley’s scoring strikes were to three different receivers in the forms of Shaq Evans, Devin Fuller and Thomas Duarte.
With the majority of the focus in the Pac-12 being on two members of the northern division in Oregon and Stanford–who was upset earlier this evening–the Bruins are consistently proving that they’re not just a force to be reckoned with in the south, but rather the entire conference.
And now, we’re going to find out just how much of a force they really are.
This win tonight over the now 1-5 Golden Bears was more of a tune-up for what the Bruins have coming the next two weeks. Next week they will go on the road to face Stanford in Palo Alto, which will then be followed by a trip to Autzen to take on the Ducks.
UCLA will have two chances within the next two weeks to show us exactly how serious they are about possibly playing for a national championship in their own stadium come January.
