UCLA has a talented backup quarterback in Chase Griffin, but it also doesn't hurt to have a strong running game supporting him. Demetric Felton rushed for career-high 206 yards and a touchdown, Brittain Brown added two scores on 72 yards as the Bruins defeated Arizona 27-10 at the Rose Bowl Saturday night. ''To have two backs ready to go like that makes it a whole lot easier,'' said Griffin, who got his first win as a starting quarterback.

Colorado football took a 20-10 victory over visiting San Diego State on Saturday evening in Boulder. The win stretched Colorado's undefeated start to the season to a perfect 3-0. A punishing defense led the charge for the Buffs, with San Diego State's offense only able to muster a single field goal. The Aztec's lone touchdown came on a returned interception. Quarterback Sam Noyer (138 passing yards, one touchdown) and running back Jarek Broussard (124 yards on 34 carries) did enough on offense to earn the win in a rare 2020 non-conference matchup.
