SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Quarterback Brett Hundley promised that the No. 17 Bruins won't be looking past slumping Washington State on Saturday to next week's game with rival Southern California.
That focus has served UCLA (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) well, as the Bruins lead the Pac-12 South after beating Arizona last week.
Washington State (2-7, 0-6) seems to be falling apart during a six-game losing streak that has prompted coach Mike Leach to describe some of his players as zombies and empty corpses. Star receiver Marquess Wilson is suspended for the UCLA game for storming out during a conditioning drill earlier this week. It's not clear when he will return.
The scene isn't nearly as stormy at UCLA, where first-year coach Jim Mora has the Bruins ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since the 2006 season.
