UCLA wasn't able to come back this time as Arizona defeated them 52-14 before a crowd of 55,775. Four of the five previous games the Bruins were able to comeback, this time they dug too big of a hole to get out of. They trailed 31-7 at the half and were out gained on the ground 315 yards to 85.
"This was a wake-up call," said running back Maurice Drew. "We thought we were better than we really were."
The lone bright spot was former Long Beach Poly star, Marcedes Lewis who had a career high 11 catches for 131 yards, that is the second most in school history. His season total of 48 broke the single season record for tight ends which was held by Paul Bergmann.
The Bruins dropped to (8-1, 5-1) while Arizona rose to (3-6, 2-4).
