The University of Washington Huskies took their first win over UCLA at Pasadena in over 24 years. The woebegone Bruins have yet to win a game this season, however, head coach Chip Kelly pulled out all the stops and inspired his Bruin squad to put together a strong effort, but that effort would fail as the Huskies would hold on to win 31-24.

Initially the game looked like a decisive husky win as the Dawgs would put together a 24-7 lead. In the 1st quarter, Jake Browning would hit Aaron Fuler for a 25 yard TD then run in for a 1 yard TD towards the end of the half. Unfortunately, the Bruins would fire back in the 2nd half with 10 unanswered points in the 2nd half to bring the game within 24-17.

“When the game was on the line we made the plays when we needed,” Washington coach Chris Petersen said. “UCLA did a nice job of shortening the game as they got back into it.”
Jake Browning would go 18-26 on the day with 285 yard and both a passing and rushing TD. RB Miles Gaskin would collect 116 yards on the ground and 2 TDs of his own.
