We don’t need to remind you just how solid UCLA was offensively against the Arizona State Sun Devils down the stretch of the contest. The Bruins hung 45 points in thrilling fashion, and it was the offense that came up with the clutch performance when things got tight.

This offense made up for what was sorely lacking on the defensive end — as ASU did manage over 500 yards of total offense — and pulled a win out of their rear end with Ka’imi Fairbairn making a go-ahead field goal as time expired.

It was a crazy win and UCLA fans are pretty damn proud of it.

Let’s get to the grades.

Quarterback: A

Although it’s tough to give out too many “A’s” in these posts, Brett Hundley has consistently proven to be the baddest freshman QB in the Pac-12 and, possibly, the country. Against ASU? He went 19-for-29, threw four touchdowns and accumulated over 270 yards, all while evading defenders when his offensive line — which performed much better, but still not ideally — collapsed.

    The offensive line rating should be a tad higher and the receivers a bit lower, imo. They simply weren’t getting open. Using a timer, I found that our offensive line was doing better than before.

      It was, but I’ve also given ‘em a C- before. I can’t give ‘em much higher because Hundley was still scrambling most game. But I gotchu, they were better.

    Why are you bashing Damien Thigpen? He caught two touchdowns?

      Oy! Sorry, forgot about those. Still, his performance was probably included in WRs.
