  Dorian Thompson-Robinson passed for 315 yards and three touchdowns and UCLA beat No. 15 Washington 40-32 in a Friday night matchup of unbeaten Pac-12 teams at the Rose Bowl. The fifth-year senior - who had his sixth 300-yard passing game - also ran 2 yards for a score in the third quarter, when he sidestepped defenders Bralen Trice and Jayvion Green, causing them to fall on one another in a heap near the goal line in making it 33-10. Thompson-Robinson supplied the highlight plays, but plenty of other Bruins contributed to their first regular-season win over a top-15 team since 2014. It is also UCLA's first 5-0 start since 2013.

Zach Charbonnet rushed for 124 yards and a score, Jake Bobo had six receptions for 142 yards and a pair of TDs while the Bruins recorded their first safety in four years and forced a pair of turnovers. Washington's Michael Penix came into the game leading the nation in passing yards but struggled in the first half as UCLA (2-0 Pac-12) scored on four straight drives and jumped out to a 26-10 halftime lead. Penix finished 33 of 48 for 345 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. Penix passed for a pair of touchdowns and 2-point conversions in the fourth quarter as the Huskies got within eight, but UCLA ran out the final three minutes. Rome Odunze had eight receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns. - UCLA/AP College Football

  Zach Charbonnet ran for three touchdowns and Dorian Thompson-Robinson threw for two more to power UCLA to its seventh straight win, a 45-17 rout of winless Colorado on Saturday. The Bruins (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) left Boulder with their first victory at Folsom Field since 2014 and their longest winning streak since winning their first eight games in 2005. Freshman left-hander Owen McCown, the son of longtime NFL quarterback Josh McCown, made his starting debut for Colorado (0-4, 0-1), which has now been outscored 173-47, the first time in program history the Buffaloes have lost four consecutive games by at least 25 points.

McCown got his chance after last year's starter, Brendon Lewis and Tennessee transfer J.T. Shrout failed to ignite Colorado's stagnant offense. McCown scored on a 2-yard keeper and capped an 85-yard, 14-play drive with an 8-yard scoring strike to fellow freshman Jordan Tyson but he had two turnovers and couldn't keep the Buffaloes from dropping to 0-4 for the first time since 2006. McCown finished 26 of 42 for 258 yards with a TD and an interception. He was sacked five times. UCLA outrushed Colorado 249 yards to 51 and the Bruins dominated the Pac-12 opener for both teams with touchdown drives on its first three possessions to build a 21-3 lead that was never threatened. - UCLA/AP College Football

  Nicholas Barr-Mira kicked a 24-yard field goal on the final play of the game and UCLA escaped South Alabama's upset bid with a 32-31 victory Saturday. The Jaguars looked to be in control of becoming the fourth Sun Belt Conference team in two weeks to beat a Power Five team, but were done in when a trick play went awry. The Jaguars tried a fake field goal with 2:52 remaining but Tanner McGee was sacked by Carl Jones Jr., giving the Bruins the ball at the 33. UCLA drove 61 yards in 10 plays, culminating in Barr-Mira's second field goal of the day. Dorian Thompson-Robinson completed 20 of 30 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns as the Bruins start 3-0 for the first time since 2015.

La'Damian Webb rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown and Carter Bradley passed for 237 yards and two scores for South Alabama (2-1), which was looking to join Marshall, Appalachian State and Georgia Southern in the Sun Belt's hit parade. Last Saturday, Marshall and Appalachian State posted upsets against ranked teams Notre Dame and Texas A&M and Georgia Southern's win over Nebraska got Scott Frost fired. Webb and Bradley transferred to South Alabama this season. Webb, who spent the past two seasons at Jones Community College in Mississippi, had his first 100-yard game. Bradley was at Toledo the last four years and nearly led the Rockets to a road upset at Notre Dame last season. He completed 26 of 36 passes, including a 4-yard TD to Caullin Lacy late in the third quarter to put the Jaguars up 31-23 late in the third quarter. - UCLA/AP College Football

  Backup quarterback Ethan Garbers threw for 164 yards and ran for a pair of touchdowns, and UCLA improved to 2-0 for the second consecutive year with a 45-7 rout of Alabama State on Saturday.

  Dorian Thompson-Robinson accounted for 385 yards of total offense and four scores, Zach Charbonnet ran for 111 yards and a touchdown, and UCLA rallied for a 45-17 victory over Bowling Green Saturday in the season opener for both teams. The Bruins trailed 17-7 early in the second quarter before scoring 38 straight points to win their opener for the second straight year. Thompson-Robinson completed 32 of 43 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns along with rushing for 87 yards and two scores. The fifth-year senior supplied an early highlight with a career-long 68-yard TD run during the first quarter to tie the game at seven.

Bowling Green brought a nickel blitz on third-and-3, but the fifth-year senior escaped pressure from Davon Ferguson in the backfield, scrambled right, went down the sideline and then cut across the field, including escaping another diving tackle attempt from a Falcons defender at the BG 34, before going into the end zone. Charbonnet posted his eighth 100-yard rushing game since transferring from Michigan last year. The Bruins rushed for 264 yards, improving to 16-4 when that has happened since Chip Kelly became coach in 2018. UCLA scored 17 straight points in the second quarter to take a 24-17 lead at halftime. Keegan Jones supplied the go-ahead score when he caught a screen pass from Thompson-Robinson and went 52 yards up the left sideline. - UCLA/AP College Football

  08/22/22 - Jacob SykesrSr/2023, UCLA + More +

  Harvard transfer Jacob Sykes found a new home in UCLA through the transfer portal this offseason. Sykes has set high expectations for himself and believes his mindset falls in line with what is being asked of the defense this season. "I attack every day thinking I am the best player in the world," Sykes said. "I just have to prove it every day. I want to establish myself as a dominant player and even if I don't play well one day I'm going to attack the next day with the same mindset." Sykes is a redshirt senior with aspirations of playing in the NFL after his time at UCLA. He had opportunities to play for Northwestern and Rutgers and several Ivy League programs coming out of high school but decided Harvard was best for him. "I settled on Harvard because the name Harvard (on a degree) will open doors," Sykes said. "God forbid I get hurt or anything like that, but I have a great degree to help support my family and those types of things."

He also believes Harvard offered a great balance of athletics and academics for him, with the Ivy League offering a "great caliber of football" that can prepare players for success in the NFL. Sykes decided to explore his options to play for another program in a bigger conference after 2021, because of the extra year of eligibility that was offered to all student-athletes after the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. "It's going good," Sykes said of the level of competition at UCLA. "It's a little bit different here. It's a lot more up-tempo and fast-paced and the guys are a little bit bigger and stronger but it's going well." - Orange County Register

  08/18/22 - Mike MartinezSr/2023, UCLA + More +

  UCLA football coach Chip Kelly confirmed that tight end Mike Martinez is no longer with the program. Martinez played in all three nonconference games last season before an injury kept him out for the rest of the season. The former Mater Dei High standout played in all 19 games during his first two seasons with the program. Martinez participated in spring practice but Kelly did not provide details about the tight end's departure. He was considered the Bruins' best blocking tight end. "(We) have to compensate," Kelly said. "We feel good about our tight end room. They're working extremely hard and I think it's a really good group and we're going to move on." The coach believes tight end is still one of his "deepest" positions on the roster. Michael Ezeike is expected to start at the position and was named to the John Mackey Award watch list for the honor given to the best tight end at the end of the season. The redshirt senior played on special teams and as a reserve receiver during his first three years with the program before switching to tight end in 2021. - Los Angeles Times
