Haener, Fresno State get past No. 13 UCLA
PASADENA, Calif. — Jake Haener threw for 455 yards, including the go-ahead touchdown to wide receiver Jalen Cropper with 14 seconds left, as Fresno State upset No. 13 UCLA 40-37 Saturday.
Haener overcame a crushing fourth-quarter hit to his right hip to rally the Bulldogs (3-1). After the Bruins (2-1) regained the lead with 54 seconds left on Bishop Gorman product Dorian Thompson-robinson’s 15-yard pass to wide receiver Kyle Philips, a limping Haener directed a six-play, 75-yard drive that gave Fresno State its fourth straight win over UCLA.
Cropper had three receptions for 50 yards on the drive. Josh Kelly also had a 26-yard catch that put the ball at the UCLA 12 with 23 seconds to go. Cropper totaled 14 catches for 141 yards and Kelly eight for 120. Ronnie Rivers ran for 136 yards and two TDS for the Bulldogs.
Thompson-robinson threw for 278 yards and three TDS, and Philips had seven catches for 113 yards and two TDS. Zach Charbonnet ran for two TDS for the Bruins, who were ranked for the first time in four years.
Fresno State was up 23-10 at halftime and 26-17 in the fourth quarter, but the final 7:27 had four lead changes.
No. 23 Brigham Young 27, No. 19 Arizona State 19: At Provo, Utah, Jaren Hall threw for 214 yards and two TDS for the Cougars (3-0), who forced four turnovers in their third straight win over a Pac-12 foe.
