LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jim Mora won't get much time to enjoy No. 25 UCLA's season.
Right after the Bruins finished off Arizona State with a game-ending field goal in a 45-43 barn-burner, the new coach had to get right to work on stopping another Pac-12 offense with perhaps even more firepower.
The pace and proficiency of college offenses are wearing out the longtime defensive-minded NFL coach, but he's making enough correct moves to keep the Bruins moving forward in a remarkable debut season.
With the same record as archrival Southern California, UCLA (6-2, 3-2 Pac-12) is bowl-eligible in October for the first time since 2005 after knocking off the Sun Devils.
The Bruins must leave the Rose Bowl only once more in the regular season. They'll get a visit Saturday from high-scoring Arizona.
