Bruins move to a perfect 3-0

It wasn't close to pretty, in fact ugly would be the better term to describe the game, but the good news is the Bruins won and are 3-0 for the first time since 2005. Every year and every team plays a game or two that is out of rhythm and good teams find a way to dig deep and win even when things are out of sync.

Though the Bruins are far from being a good team, the potential is there for them to be a very good team.

UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel was worried going into the game coming off the program's biggest win against Tennessee last weekend since they upset their cross town rivals to knock them out of the NCAA Championship game in 2006.

"I knew Bill Snyder would have his team ready and eager," Neuheisel said. "This game scared me as much as any game in my career because of the excitement after the Tennessee win and the backslapping happening on campus.

"The coaches were pleading with the players to get it done and work their tails off, and we also had other distractions, but at the end of the day, we found another way to win that will serve us down the road."
