UCLA already has three conference losses after falling to Washington State on Saturday, but the Bruins still have a chance to clinch the Pac-12 South with wins at Utah and USC.
That lifeline came courtesy of the No. 18 Utes’ loss to unranked Arizona, a game that ended while UCLA was still trying to pull away from the Cougars.
“Us as players, we’re not going to admit it,” said running back Paul Perkins. “Well, we will– We always look at the scores and see what’s going on around college football. … Once we lost, we realized we still had a mulligan.”
He also talked about the Bruins’ success on the road, as well as quarterback Josh Rosen’s development.
