Recapping UCLA’s 38-23 loss to unranked Arizona State

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.”
