UCLA shocks Washington: Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson leads Bruins past No. 15 Huskies with monstrous effort

USA TSI

World No. 15 Washington suffered its first setback in the Kalen DeBoer era when UCLA outscored the Huskies 40-32 in DeBoer’s first Rose Bowl road game. The win leaves Los Angeles rivals USC and UCLA as the only two undefeated teams left in the Pac-12.

UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson played one of the best games of his five-year career for the Bruins. He threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns and added another rushing touchdown to keep a talented Huskies defense on their toes. Running back Zach Charbonnet added 124 rushing yards, while receiver Jake Bobo connected six times for 142 yards and two touchdowns.

However, the defense was perhaps even more impressive for the Bruins. After allowing a touchdown on the opening drive, UCLA forced a safety, a field goal, an interception, a punt and an interception on the rest of Washington’s first-half drives to take a 16-point lead through the middle. weather. Defensive backs Stephan Blaylock and JonJon Vaughns each caught a key interception by Washington star quarterback Michael Penix Jr. to keep the UW offense in turmoil.

Penix wouldn’t be long. In the second half, Washington threw for 212 yards and converted all three fourth-down attempts. Penix led a pair of 12-play drives that ended in touchdown passes to get the matchup closer to a late score. However, Washington was unable to contain Thompson-Robinson on key points to freeze the game.

Penix threw for 345 yards and four touchdowns in a great effort. Wide receiver Rome Odunze added eight receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns. However, the Huskies put up just 3.1 yards per carry against UCLA’s physical defense. The gap between Charbonnet and Washington’s inconsistent running offense ultimately ended up being the difference.
