PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Brett Hundley passed for 183 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 68 yards and another score, and UCLA's defense largely shut down Utah in a 21-14 victory Saturday.

Johnathan Franklin rushed for 79 yards and a TD for the Bruins (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12), who bounced back solidly from a blowout loss to California that knocked them out of the Top 25 last weekend.

Shaq Evans caught a 64-yard TD pass from Hundley, who showed off his uncommon freshman poise while winning a duel with Travis Wilson. Utah's freshman quarterback passed for 220 yards in his first career start, but the Utes (2-4, 0-3) lost their third straight.

UCLA's defense shut out the Utah offense until Wilson led a 90-yard drive capped by Jon Hays' 1-yard TD pass to Dres Anderson with 3:16 to play.
