This was the Bruins’ first win over USC since 2018, and it was a huge win for the program. UCLA trailed 10-7 going into the second quarter, but they outscored USC 34-16 in the second half to secure the victory. The win helped UCLA finish the season with an 8-4 record and a berth in the Sun Bowl. It was their best overall finish since going 10-3 in 2014.

The victory over their biggest rival the Trojans could have been ranked the top victory for the Bruins these past five seasons but the win that is ranked No. 1 gets the top ranking due to it’s overall impact on the program and the significance it had on the season.

No. 1

Date: Sat, Oct 8, 2022

843. 42. 836. Final. 32

UCLA led 14-10 at halftime and never looked back, as they played well in the second half against Utah on both sides of the ball. The win helped propel UCLA to a 6-0 start with their win over the No. 11 ranked Utes. It was also the first victory over Utah since they defeated the Utes 17-9 in 2015. The following week UCLA was ranked No. 9 after their impressive win against Utah.

These two wins were significant for UCLA football in different ways. The win over Utah in 2022 showed that the Bruins are capable of beating the best teams in the Pac-12. The win over USC in 2021 was a huge rivalry win that helped UCLA snap a long losing streak to their crosstown rivals.

In terms of impact, the win over Utah in 2022 is arguably the most significant win for UCLA football since the 2019 season. It was a win that showed that the Bruins are a team on the rise and that they are capable of competing for the Pac-12 championship.
