PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - UCLA kept its raucous celebration in the locker room, with only a few tweeted photos providing any evidence.
By the time the Bruins emerged from their Rose Bowl party following their 36-30 victory over Nebraska on Saturday night, they were all business again, insisting it was just another victory.
It sure felt like more than that after a long-struggling program flattened a perennial college football power.
With a new coaching staff, an exciting freshman quarterback and what certainly seems to be a novel attitude toward success, these Bruins are off to a strong start in the lengthy task of fixing 15 years of mostly mediocre football at UCLA.
The Bruins (2-0) cracked the AP poll at No. 22 on Sunday, earning their first ranking in more than four years.
