The UCLA defense has had enough trouble stopping opposing offenses, but the Bruins suffered from friendly fire during Friday’s 48-17 loss to Utah.
UCLA defensive backs Jaleel Wadood and Darnay Holmes ran into each other on the first play of the third quarter against Utah, allowing Utah receiver Troy McCormick to come free on a simple wheel route for a 75-yard touchdown.
The Bruins (4-5, 2-4 Pac-12) fell to the bottom of the Pac-12 South with the loss and have to win two out of their final three games to secure bowl eligibility.

- Not game related: UCLA lost two more commits over the weekend with three-star safety Dayven Coleman backing out Friday morning before the game and three-star defensive back Kendrick Torain Jr. decommiting Saturday. That’s four decommits in the last week, three defensive backs and one offensive lineman. The Bruins still have 20 pledges for its 2018 class.
Much love for UCLA but After talking to my family I have decided to decommit from UCLA and to open my recruitment back up #Godsplan
