One week after absorbing their first loss to the Oregon Ducks, the UCLA Bruins redeemed themselves by convincingly handling Stanford 38-13 at the Rose Bowl.

The Bruin defense tightened up on Saturday  

The Bruin defense that allowed 545 yards at Eugene, tightened up on Saturday to shut down Stanford’s offense. While UCLA’s Defensive Coordinator Bill McGovern recovered from an illness, former Trojan coordinator Clancy Pendergast stepped in to fill the role.

Bruin linebacker Darius Muasau  

The UCLA defense was led by a top performance from Bruin linebacker Darius Muasau, who had a season high nine tackles and an interception. The defense kept the Cardinal offense well under 275 yards on the night and by forcing punts, gave the ball back to the powerful Bruin offense often.

Dorian Thompson-Robinson lead his team  

Once again, a mature Dorian Thompson-Robinson led his team with his arm and ability to run. The senior quarterback was 18 of 29 for 200 yards through the air and no interceptions. Thompson-Robinson had another 72 yards on the ground and a touchdown, while distributing the ball for others to perform.

Kazmeir Allen put the game away 

Hard running Bruin tailback Zach Charbonnet averaged nearly 10 yards per carry, while gaining 198 yards on 21 carries and three touchdowns. Bruin receiver Kazmeir Allen caught three passes, but put the game away with a dynamic 72-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.Currently ranked 10th by the Associated Press, UCLA (7-1) travels to Arizona State (3-5) on Saturday and will return home to play Arizona on November 12th.
