PASADENA, Calif. — Brett Hundley threw two touchdown passes and rushed for two more scores, Devin Fuller scored three touchdowns, and No. 17 UCLA shook off back-to-back losses with a 45-23 victory over Colorado on Saturday night.
Damien Thigpen also ran for a touchdown for the Bruins (6-2, 3-2 Pac-12), who rebounded from road defeats at Stanford and Oregon despite a sluggish start in their homecoming game.
Fuller caught a 76-yard TD pass for the Bruins' first score and added a rushing TD with 3:36 to play. Hundley passed for 273 yards and scored on runs of 11 and 1 yards while moving into third place on UCLA's career total yardage list.
Sefo Liufau passed for 247 yards for the Buffaloes (3-5, 0-5), who have lost 13 consecutive Pac-12 games.
The Bruins won despite 11 penalties for 122 yards, steadily pulling away from Colorado with solid defense and just enough playmaking from Hundley, their sophomore quarterback. Hundley finished with 345 total yards, passing Tom Ramsey and Cory Paus on UCLA's career yardage list in just his 22nd game with the Bruins.
Arizona 33, California 28
At Berkeley, Calif., B.J. Denker ran for three touchdowns and passed for a fourth, Ka'Deem Carey went over 1,000 yards for the second consecutive season and Arizona beat California.
A week after setting a school record for most rushing yards by a quarterback in one game, Denker managed just 44 yards on the ground but scored on runs of nine, one and 14 yards. That gave the Wildcats senior a team-leading 11 rushing touchdowns this season, another Arizona record for quarterbacks.
Carey, the nation's leading rusher, topped the century mark for the 11th consecutive game with 152 yards on 32 carries.
