                 === UCLA seals win with sixth interception ===
 
 Salt  Lake City, UT  (SportsNetwork.com) - So much for not being able to force
 turnovers.
 
 The  UCLA defense  intercepted Utah quarterback Travis Wilson six times in the
 12th-ranked Bruins' 34-27 triumph over the Utes on Thursday.
 
 The  Bruins, who  had only three takeaways coming into the game, picked Wilson
 off for the  final time with 24 seconds remaining  and the Utes driving  for a
 potential game-tying score at the UCLA 23-yard line.
 
 "We  came up with some plays on defense, got some stops on defense," UCLA head
 coach Jim Mora said.
 
 Brett  Hundley was 17-of-27 for 211 yards with a touchdown and an interception
 and  ran  for 85  yards and  a score  on 20  carries for  the Bruins (4-0, 1-0
 Pac-12), who are 4-0 for the first time since 2005.
 
 Paul  Perkins  carried the  ball 16  times for 92  yards, Jordan Payton caught
 three  passes for 68  yards and a touchdown and Anthony Barr tallied two sacks
 in the triumph.
 
 Wilson finished 22-of-44 for 288 yards and two touchdowns for Utah (3-2, 0-2),
 which was coming off a Sept. 21 victory against BYU.
 
 "When  you're minus-five in the turnover margin, especially against a team the
 caliber  of  UCLA, you're not  going to win,"  Utah head coach Kyle Wittingham
 said.
 
 Dres  Anderson  hauled in six receptions  for 106 yards and a touchdown, while
 Sean Fitzgerald brought in five balls for 53 yards and a score in defeat.
 
 After Keith McGill's 19-yard interception return for a touchdown tied the game
 at  24-24  early in the  fourth, the Bruins rattled  off 10 straight points to
 seemingly take a comfortable margin.
 
 Ka'imi  Fairbairn  nailed a 47-yard field  goal to cap UCLA's ensuing 13-play,
 48-yard sequence.
 
 Anthony Jefferson intercepted Wilson later in the frame to give the Bruins the
 ball  at  the Utah 40-yard line  and Hundley scampered untouched for a 36-yard
 score three plays later to make it 34-24 with 3:33 left.
 
 Andy  Phillips  booted through a  37-yard field goal to  get the Utes within a
 score  with just over  two minutes to go and they recovered the ensuing onside
 kick.
 
 Myles Jack, though, secured the victory for the Bruins with the interception.
 
 Earlier,  after Jordon  James concluded a 10-play, 68-yard drive with a 1-yard
 TD plunge on UCLA's opening drive of the game, the Utes put up the next 14.
 
 Wilson  hit Anderson for a 54-yard score on Utah's first touch of the game and
 then  flipped  a 6-yard TD pass  to Fitzgerald later  in the first to give the
 Utes a 14-7 edge after a quarter of play.
 
 Lined  up  in the  left slot, wide  receiver Devin Fuller  took a handoff from
 Hundley  and then hit him for a 7-yard touchdown to cap a 9-play, 80-yard trek
 early in the second to tie the tilt at 14-14.
 
 Randall  Goforth intercepted  Wilson on  Utah's next  series, which  led to  a
 Payton 17-yard TD reception to give UCLA a 21-14 edge.
 
 The  Utes then answered  with a field goal as Phillips split the uprights from
 44 yards out midway through the frame.
 
 UCLA  took  a 21-17 lead  into the break and  Fairbairn nailed a 33-yard field
 goal early in the third to make it a one-score spread.
 
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 The  Bruins  were 7-of-19 on third  down, while Utah finished 2-of-13 in those
 situations ... UCLA outgained Utah, 404-387 ... UCLA leads the all-time series
 between the teams, 10-2.
