Washington Huskies defeat UCLA Bruins 24-7. After dueling three-and-outs, the Bruins capped a 13-play, 92-yard drive with a 31-yard touchdown run from Johnathan Franklin for a 7-0 lead.

And that was it for the Bruins highlights, thank you for coming! Do not pass go, and do not go to a bowl game.

It was bad enough that Richard Brehaut was particular ineffective going 5-for-17 for only 42 yards and two interceptions, but after being knocked out the game in the third quarter with a concussion everyone realized he was the best option for the Bruins.

Darius Bell was pulled after four series when he threw his own interception for a Huskies touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter going 0-for-3. Then came some kid named Clayton Tunney who went 1-for-8 with an interception. It was that kind of night.

At least the Bruins contained Huskies quarterback Jake Locker. He only threw 10-for-21 for 68 yards and an interception while only carrying the ball four times for nine yards and a touchdown. But they had no answer for running backs Chris Polk and Jesse Callier. Polk had the ball 27 times running for 141 yards and a touchdown while Callier only had nine touches but went a respectable 105 yards.
