UCLA’s first loss cost the team 13 spots in the AP poll, the Bruins dropping to No. 20 after falling short against unranked Arizona State.
Here’s our coverage from the 38-25 debacle at the Rose Bowl on Saturday night:
» Almost nothing went right for the Bruins, whose battered defense couldn’t do enough to make up for a sputtering offense.
» As both teams struggled early on offense, it was kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn who came up big.
» Vinny Bonsignore’s column on UCLA, which couldn’t wake up in time to stay within sight of its playoff dreams.
» Arizona State coach Todd Graham: “There wasn’t much trickery to it. We came over and dominated the line of scrimmage, dominated all three phases.”
