UCLA update: The Bruins nabbed a critical 31-14 win over Oregon with a strong defensive performance that shut out the Ducks in the second half. … UCLA had its first takeaways on defense and its first sacks since Week 3 against Memphis. Jaleel Wadood forced a fumble that was recovered by Jacob Tuioti-Mariner and Colin Samuel had an interception. … The offense didn’t turn the ball over for only the second time this year. … After 12 tackles against Oregon, linebacker Kenny Young now has double-digit tackles in four straight games. … UCLA picked up several injuries in the win, including what could be a “very significant” collarbone injury to defensive lineman Matt Dickerson, Coach Jim Mora said.

Washington’s last game: The defending Pac-12 champions have had a whole week to stew about their 13-7 loss to Arizona State on Oct. 7. Before the bye week, the Huskies were held scoreless for 3-1/2 quarters in the road loss while missing two field goals shorter than 30 yards. … Starting left tackle Trey Adams suffered a season-ending knee injury and starting cornerback Jordan Miller will also miss the rest of the year due to a broken ankle. … The Huskies have not allowed a passing touchdown in their four Pac-12 games and lead the conference in both scoring defense (10.6 points allowed per game) and total defense (236.9 yards allowed per game).
