The UCLA Bruins came up short with the best all-around performance of the season in a 31- 24 loss to Washington.

A Rose Bowl crowd of 51,123 saw true freshman QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson have his best day yet as a Bruin throwing for 272 yards on 17 of 38 pass attempts and one pick.

“We know were right there, so that’s a good feeling,” said Thompson-Roninson.

Junior running back Joshua Kelley had 125 yards on the ground and caught 3 passes for 39 yards in his best out-put of the season. He also became the first Bruin to rush over the century since Paul Perkins in 2015.

“They have a good defense over there,“ said Bruin head coach Chip Kelley. “We didn’t high-five in the locker room. I am not a guy who get’s solace in we were close. That’s not us. Close isn’t good. Close is bad. “

On the defensive side UCLA held the huskies to 126 yards on the ground.  Bakersfield’s own Krys Barnes had nine tackles 7 solo, including  2 sacks also a pass break-up. ”We saw a lot of great things, said Barnes “the offense was doing great things.” 

Running back Myles Gaskin led Washington 5-1 (3-0) with 116 yards on 27 carries. Gaskin became the fifth player in Pac 12 history to have 50 rushing touchdowns. Senior QB Jake Browning completed 18 of 26 passes for 265 and also ran for 49 yards to lead the 10th ranked Huskies.

The Bruins travel to Cal this weekend.
