  2019 BURLSWORTH TROPHY SEMIFINALIST: Joshua Kelley, UCLA, Running Back, SR - Kelley leads the Pac 12 in rushing with 107.6 yards per game.

Kelley ran for 1,243 yards and 12 touchdowns last season for the Bruins, earning All-Pac-12 First Team recognition by the Associated Press and ESPN.com. Kelley finished with 176 yards and one touchdown on 18 carriers in a win against Stanford earlier this season. - Burlsworth Trophy

  UCLA has gone from woeful to controlling its own destiny in the Pac-12 South in less than a month. The Bruins won their third straight game as Dorian Thompson-Robinson passed for two touchdowns and Joshua Kelley added two rushing scores in a 31-14 victory over Colorado on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl. UCLA -- which is on its first three-game winning streak since 2015 -- goes into the bye week 4-5 overall but 4-2 in conference play. It trails ninth-ranked Utah by just a game in the division going into their Nov. 16 matchup in Salt Lake City. "It's definitely a good feeling, to know that you're in control of your own destiny, and stuff like that, and that you're able to go and make something out of it. Now we just have to go and put the work in and get it done," Thompson-Robinson said.

The Bruins victory mirrored their earlier wins against Stanford and Arizona State. Their offense was balanced, and the defense was able to get consistent pressure on Colorado quarterback Steven Montez. Thompson-Robinson was 21-of-28 for 226 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. The sophomore completed 10 of his first 11, including first-quarter TDs of 16 yards to Devin Asiasi and 45 yards to Ethan Fernea as the Bruins jumped out to a 17-0 lead 12 minutes into the game. The offense took advantage of the defense forcing the Buffaloes to go three-and-out on their first two possessions and Krys Barnes' interception on the third series. - UCLA/AP College Football

  Kelley rushed for 164 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in a 42-32 victory over Arizona State last weekend, the first Bruin with four rushing TDs in a game since Myles Jack in 2013. A junior, Kelley is just the fourth player nationally with four rushing touchdowns in a game this season, and first in the Pac-12. "You know, I like playing at the Rose Bowl," Kelley said following the performance. "We needed a win here, for sure. We haven't had a win at home this season. So that was an extra incentive for us. But our offensive line was so amazing. I can't do that without them." Kelly is averaging 105 yards a game this season, tops in the Pac-12, and he's second in the league to Moss with eight total touchdowns. - AP College Football

  UCLA coach Chip Kelly has often said that when running back Joshua Kelley plays well, the Bruins have a shot of winning. The senior running back had a career night Saturday, which is why the Bruins were able to beat a Top 25 team for the second time this season. Kelley scored a career-high four touchdowns and rushed for 164 yards in UCLA's 42-32 victory over 24th-ranked Arizona State. Kelley has rushed for over 100 yards in three of the past four games. He is the first Pac-12 player and fourth nationally this season to have four rushing touchdowns in a game. "We needed a win here for sure. That was extra incentive for us," said Kelley of the Bruins first home victory. "Us getting back-to-back wins is big for our young core."

Kelly is also the first Bruin with four ground TDs since Myles Jack against Washington in 2013. He helped fuel a UCLA ground game that had 217 yards, marking the first time since 2014 it has had four straight 200-yard games. "I think when everyone in the stadium knows you are going to run it and you are still able to do it, that's a credit to the whole group," Kelly said. The Bruins (3-5, 3-2) scored on five of their first six drives, including four consecutive possessions from late in the first quarter to midway in the third to roar out to a 35-7 lead after it was tied at 7. - UCLA/AP College Football

  Kelley is averaging 135.3 yards in his last four games after mustering just 52 per game in his first three. He opened the scoring with 10:53 remaining in the first quarter on a leap over the middle from 1 yard. The touchdown came five plays after Elisha Guidry recovered Benjamin's fumble at the Sun Devils 42. The senior had 100 yards in the first half, including a 5-yard TD late in the first quarter and a 16-yard run up the middle midway through the second quarter as the Bruins took control. Both of those runs capped 16-play possessions, which is the first time the Bruins have had a pair of scoring drives of 15 plays or more since a game against Texas in 2014. He extended UCLA's lead to 35-7 with 10:40 remaining in the third quarter with a 15-yard touchdown. - UCLA/AP College Football

  Dorian Thompson-Robinson wasn't sure he was going to start Thursday's game until just before game time. It turned out to be the best decision of the night. Thompson-Robinson, using the bye week to help his recovery from a leg injury that caused him to miss a game, passed for two touchdowns and ran for another in helping UCLA end an 11-year drought against Stanford with a 34-16 victory over the Cardinal. "I was day-to-day until tonight," Thompson-Robinson said. "I had been practicing but I was told just before game time." Thompson-Robinson passed for 192 yards and rushed for 66 as UCLA snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Cardinal, dating to 2008. Joshua Kelley rushed for 176 yards, including a 54-yard touchdown run and a 53-yard gain. Kyle Phillips caught 10 passes for 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

"A win is always good," Thompson-Robinson said. "It goes back to getting together in the offseason and working on things like this." Jack West became Stanford's third different starting quarterback of the season, the first time that's happened since 1974. After early success, his inconsistent play led to a stalled offense. "I'm always preparing to be the guy and this week happened to be the game," West said. "It's me making my first start but at the end of the day, it's about execution, which is what we didn't have." The Bruins (2-5, 2-2 Pac-12) scored touchdowns on their first two possessions, both passes to Phillips, to open a 14-3 lead with 4:48 remaining to play. It was UCLA's first lead of more than seven points this season. - UCLA/AP College Football

  UCLA coach Chip Kelly was succinct when asked his opinion of California’s new law that would allow college athletes to be paid for the use of their names and likenesses. “It doesn’t matter what we think. It’s the law,” Kelly said. The Pac-12 Conference has condemned the law, which was signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday. Coaches across the league were uncertain about what it might mean for them, especially in terms of recruiting. Four of the league’s teams are located in California: Stanford, Cal, UCLA and USC.

The law does not take effect until 2023. The schools would not pay the players for their likenesses, but players could be compensated by outside companies. Other states are considering similar legislation. Kelly wasn’t alone among his Pac-12 counterparts in his pragmatism. Almost all of the league’s coaches responded that they were taking a wait-and-see approach to the issue when asked about it. The conference, however, was clear. “This legislation will lead to the professionalization of college sports and many unintended consequences related to this professionalism, imposes a state law that conflicts with national rules, will blur the lines for how California universities recruit student-athletes and compete nationally, and will likely reduce resources and opportunities for student-athletes in Olympic sports and have a negative disparate impact on female student-athletes,” the Pac-12's statement said. - AP College Football

  Coach Chip Kelly says he never lost faith in his UCLA team, even as it was losing its first three games. Kelly said the Bruins played hard all 12 quarters of those losses, and that paid dividends when they fell behind at No. 19 Washington State on Saturday night. Dorian Thompson-Robinson threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Demetric Felton with 1:07 left in the game as UCLA overcame a 32-point second-half deficit to claim a wild 67-63 victory over the Cougars. "I always thought we were a good football team," Kelly said. "If we could be consistent." "When you are battle-tested like our guys are, I think that showed up today."

The Bruins overcame a record nine TD passes by Washington State's Anthony Gordon. After Felton's TD, Gordon was sacked and fumbled - the team's sixth turnover of the game - on the next possession with about a minute remaining and UCLA recovered and ran out the clock. Thompson-Robinson threw for 507 yards and five touchdowns for UCLA (1-3, 1-0 Pac-12). Gordon threw for 570 yards and broke the school record with nine TD passes for Washington State (3-1, 0-1). Jacksonville Jaguars' starting QB Gardner Minshew, a sixth round draft pick who was on the WSU sidelines for Saturday's game, held the school record of seven TD passes in a game, set in November 2018 against Arizona. - UCLA/AP College Football

  UCLA linebacker Bo Calvert is out indefinitely due to a violation of NCAA rules. The school announced the sophomore's status on Sunday but did not specify the infraction. Calvert played in five games last year with nine tackles. His absence is another blow to the Bruins' depth at inside linebacker after projected starter Tyree Thompson suffered a foot injury and had to undergo surgery. Seniors Krys Barnes and Lokeni Toailoa are listed as the starters going into Thursday's season opener at Cincinnati. The Bruins (3-9 last season) are also without senior outside linebacker Keisean Lucier-South for at least the first five games due to academic issues. - AP College Football
