UCLA Vs. Nebraska: Bruins Upset No. 16 Huskers, 36-30

There just might be some hope emanating from Westwood. The UCLA Bruins had zero pressure coming into this game. They are unranked and most aren't expecting much from them. It's that somewhat relaxed mentality that allowed the Bruins to upset the No.16 Nebraska Cornhuskers, 36-30.

The stability at quarterback is something UCLA hasn't seen in years. Freshman quarterback Brett Hundley lead the Bruins going 21-31 for 305 yards and four touchdowns. Senior Johnathan Franklin rushed for 217 yards on 26 carries. The only downside to this game was the penalties. UCLA had 11 penalties for 126 yards total.

This is head coach Jim Mora's first year with the Bruins and he's got the team at 2-0 going into their game next week versus Houston at the Rose Bowl. The Bruins may not remain unranked, as their demolishing of Rice and the shocking win over Nebraska could have them making an appearance when the AP polls come out next week.
