UCLA 36 Nebraska 30, Final

A hard fought battle for both sides, UCLA ultimately found their rhythm on defense come the second half and sealed their fate. Victorious over Nebraska, the Bruins have proved they may just deserve a little Top 25 love.

UCLA QB Brett Hundley found a way to make his offense keep working with a lot of help from RB Joseph Franklin. A total of 568 yards for the Bruins, plus the 435 yards for the Huskers, made for a big offensive night all around.

Bruins fans needed this win. One to be remembered for a long time, UCLA deserves to feel good about this one. For Nebraska, it's back to the drawing boards as the defense continues to plague an otherwise strong offense. As long as Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez can learn to stay cool under pressure, the Huskers are still in contention to make a mark in the Big Ten this season.

For UCLA? Teams like USC may want to take notice. Upset alert may need to be considered throughout the entire season now for the Bruins. Hundley and his teammates look up to the challenge.
