Olson completed 31 of 43 for a career-high 338 yards, including 6 of 7 for 71 yards on the final drive of regulation. “This is hard on the heart doing these comebacks,” said Drew, who finished with 109 yards on 29 carries. “Your heart goes bad after a while. It’s never easy. Victories are never easy, and this just shows you how hard it is.” UCLA (6-0, 3-0 Pac-10) became bowl eligible already, moved into a tie with USC atop the league standings, and could move into the top 10 when the national polls are released today. Wazzu (3-3, 0-3) has lost three straight. “What an effort,” UCLA coach Karl Dorrell said. “A lot of heart on this football team, a lot of fortitude. The guys just believe they can win all the time. To do that on the road, in this kind of environment, loud stadium and everybody’s against you but probably a thousand fans, that was fun to see. “I might have a heart attack one of these days. But I’ll tell you what, if I have to win ’em all like this, I’ll take it every time. What a great win, a great comeback. What a great day for UCLA football.” After UCLA held Wazzu to Loren Langley’s 37-yard field goal to start overtime, Drew carried four times for 19 yards in overtime. His 4-yard run took the Bruins inside the 1-yard line, and his de-helmeting plunge one play later sparked a wild celebration along the UCLA sideline. It is the Bruins’ first win at Martin Stadium since 1993, and ended a four-game losing streak to the Cougars. It also is the first time anyone on UCLA’s roster defeated Wazzu. Wazzu tailback Jerome Harrison, who blistered the Bruins for 247 yards and three touchdowns in an upset win last season, scored twice (57 and 21 yards), but had just 78 yards after halftime. Because of Harrison’s start, UCLA trailed 21-0 after the first play of the second quarter, were behind 28-7 midway through the half and fell behind 38-21 when Cougars quarterback Alex Brink scored on a 4-yard bootleg with 23 seconds left in the third quarter. But then came the fourth quarter, which UCLA dominated. Harrison, who ran through seams and darted past defenders, was held to five yards on four carries in the fourth quarter. Brink, who was 19 of 33 for 169 yards, was 3 of 8 for 26 yards in the fourth, and the Cougars managed just two first downs and 47 yards of offense. Meanwhile, Olson started the comeback with a 9-yard touchdown pass to tight end Marcedes Lewis 28 seconds into the fourth quarter as UCLA pulled within 38-28. Justin Medlock added 36-yard field with 9:56 remaining in regulation to make it 38-31 before Olson took over on his own 4-yard line with 4:52 to play. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PULLMAN, Wash. — With his helmet buried amid a pile of humanity and his tinted dreadlocks swishing from side to side, UCLA tailback Maurice Drew emerged from the bodies and lifted the ball skyward. Moments later an official raced in from the side, raised his two arms, and 64 Bruins followed suit. center_img After years of frustrating fourth-quarter collapses, UCLA now views late comeback as child’s play as the 12th-ranked Bruins matched its largest rally in school history, also overcame a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit and stunned Washington State 44-41 in overtime Saturday in front of 35,117 at Martin Stadium. Drew’s overtime heroics offset a career-high 260 yards rushing by Wazzu’s Jerome Harrison. And it was made possible by Drew Olson’s superb evening. last_img read more
