UCLA came to play it’s season finale against Cal. They jumped out to a lead, stumbled a bit before dominating the second half. At the final whistle the Bruins came away with a 42-14 win in front of 36,156 at the Rose Bowl.  

Moments after a Nicholas Barr-Mira first quarter 41-yard field goal senior quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson completed a nine play 40-yard drive by hitting Kyle Phillips with a four-yard scoring pass to put the Bruins up 10-0.   

Cal quarterback Chase Garbers scored on a one yard run with 7:00 left in the second to give the Bears (4-7, 3-5 PAC-12) a 14-10 lead. From then on it was all UCLA.  

Kazmeir Allen who had 200 all-purpose yards last week ran it in from eight yards out to give the Bruins a 17-14 lead.  

The Bruins came out in the third period ready to play. After a pass interference call DTR hit senior tight end Greg Dulcich with a 29-yard touchdown pass his sixth of the season.  

Barr-Mira kicked a 46-yard FG his 21st of the season.  

With 8:53 left in the game Phillips caught a 4 yarder (team leading 10th) from DTR .  

The Bruins rolled up 282 yards on the ground. It marked the eighth time this season the team had 1two 100-yard rushers Zach Charbonnet (106 yards) and DTR (102) ran over 100 rushing yards in the game.  

The defense shut out it’s opponent in the second half for the second time this week and held the Golden Bears under 200 yards of total offense. 

“Our biggest concern going into the game ‘ said Head Coach Chip Kelly. “Was just, what would we get offensively? You had a new coordinator that was not in college last year. So, we spent a lot of time watching the [Denver] Broncos’ tape. I think that what we did was just play our offense and our players got a little bit more settled in the second game. And that’s what we did.”
