10. Billy Kilmer 1958-60
Billy Kilmer was a phenomenal athlete. Not only was he a UCLA quarterback, but he also made an impression as a running back in his time with the Bruins.
In his three seasons with the UCLA Football team, Kilmer had helped the Bruins adjust with new coach William Barnes. UCLA was 3-6-1 in his first year but improved from season to season.
Kilmer’s only victory over USC was in his second year in 1959. The Bruins had tied for first place in the conference afar beating the Trojans 13-9 (quick side note, USC was banned from post-season play this season… sound familiar?).
The 1960 season was his break out year as he lead the nation in total offense as a passer and a runner. He eventually lead the Bruins to a 7-2-1 record, but end up 2-2 in conference, good enough for 3rd place.
