BERKELEY—The UCLA Bruins lost their final game of the regular season, falling to the California Golden Bears 36-10 on Saturday, November 26.

The Bruins have lost six of their last seven games and will not make the playoffs. Despite this, Bruins head coach Jim Mora expressed confidence in his team moving forward.
“In order for us to get back to where we want to be, we all have to resist the urge to look somewhere else for the problem and look at ourselves first,” Mora said. “If we can do that first, then we can come up with the solutions that are necessary to be a good football team again.”
California quarterback Davis Webb threw for 301 yards including two touchdowns in the Golden Bears’ fifth win of the season. Running back Khalfani Muhammad rushed for a game high 116 yards; Malik McMorris ran for one touchdown.
UCLA ended their season 2-7 in the Pac-12 and 4-8 overall.
The Golden Bears are now 3-6 in the Pac-12 and 5-7 overall. They will wait for news on whether or not they will be selected to play in an upcoming bowl game.
