Fresno St. upends No. 13 UCLA


Monte Vista-Danville alum Jake Haener, a transfer from Washington, passed for the go-ahead touchdown with 14 seconds remaining as part of a 455-yard evening as Fresno State defeated No. 13 UCLA 40-37 on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Haener’s 19-yard strike to Erik Brooks put Fresno State in front 33-30 with 2:55 remaining, but Haener was wincing in pain on the ground after taking numerous hits throughout the night.

After UCLA regained the lead with 54 seconds left on Dorian Thompson-Robinson’s 15-yard pass to Kyle Phillips, a limping Haener directed a six-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a 13-yard pass to Jalen Cropper to give the Bulldogs (3-1) their fourth straight win over the Bruins (2-1).

“We know he’s tough, right,” Fresno State head coach Kalen DeBoer said of Haener. “We’ve seen that over the course of last year and this year. He’s tough. When the pressure was great, he was at his best and that’s what’s awesome.”

#23 BYU 27, #19 Arizona State 17: Jaren Hall threw for 214 yards and two touchdowns and the host Cougars (3-0) forced four turnovers against the Sun Devils (2-1). Jaylen Daniels threw for 265 yards for ASU.

Northern Arizona 21, Arizona 19: RJ Martinez threw a 9-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and Northern Arizona stopped a late two-point conversion attempt as the Lumberjack­s (1-2) beat the host Wildcats (0-3) to extend Arizona’s schoolreco­rd losing streak to 15 games.

#14 Iowa State 48, UNLV 3: Brock Purdy completed 21 of 24 pass attempts for 288 yards and three touchdowns as the Cyclones (2-1) rolled past the host Rebels (0-3).
