PASADENA, Calif. (AP)—Derrick Coleman rushed for 185 yards and three touchdowns, Johnathan Franklin added 216 rushing yards and UCLA scored twice in the fourth quarter for a 42-28 victory over Washington State on Saturday.
Richard Brehaut passed for 128 yards and scored the go-ahead TD on a keeper early in the fourth quarter while filling in for injured starter Kevin Prince for the Bruins (3-2, 1-1, Pac-10), who won their third straight after an 0-2 start.
UCLA trailed Washington State (1-4, 0-2) by eight points in the second half before rallying to avoid a letdown in the Bruins’ first game since a stunning road win over Texas last week.
The Bruins rolled up 565 yards against the Cougars, 437 on the ground.
Jeff Tuel went 20 for 37 for 311 yards and two touchdowns for Washington State.
