C-Matt Scott had his worst game of the season, completing 15 of 25 passes for 124 yards and rushing three times for 4 yards before being knocked from the game with an apparent head injury. Backups B.J. Denker (2 for 5, 12 yards) and Richard Morrison (2 carries, 6 yards, no pass attempts) were ineffective against the opportunistic Bruins.
C-Ka'Deem Carey rushed for 54 yards and a score on 16 carries - decent numbers, but well below his season averages. Daniel Jenkins received seven garbage-time carries and gained 42 yards. Jared Baker played late, and gained 8 yards on four carries.
D+With Arizona playing from behind all night, it was imperative that the receivers step up. They didn't: Austin Hill caught five passes for 57 yards, and Dan Buckner caught three passes for 22 yards. Nobody else had more than two grabs.
D+Center Kyle Quinn returned after missing a month with an ankle injury. But as soon as Arizona's starting line came back together, Chris Putton went down with an injury. Arizona's backs averaged 3 yards per carry, a season low, and Scott took the devastating sack. It wasn't the line's - or the offense's - best day.
D UCLA gained 611 yards, and almost exactly half - 308 - came on the ground. Johnathan Franklin gained 162 yards on 24 carries, scored two touchdowns and passed Gaston Green as the Bruins' all-time leading rusher. Backups Steven Manfro, Jordon James and Melvin Emesibe combined to gain 106 yards and score two touchdowns .
D Arizona's secondary didn't fare any better. UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley completed 23 of 28 passes for 288 yards and three TDs in one of his best games as a collegian. The Bruins seemed to pick on cornerback Shaquille Richardson; he gave up two of the Bruins' three passing scores.
C+Another night, another mixed bag for the Wildcats' most schizophrenic position group. Kyle Dugandzic shanked a punt that led to a first-quarter UCLA touchdown, but finished with a respectable 42.3 yards per punt on seven boots. John Bonano connected on a PAT and field goal. Morrison fumbled a punt return, and the kickoff return and coverage teams were average at best.
