UCLA has a talented backup quarterback in Chase Griffin, but it also doesn't hurt to have a strong running game supporting him. Demetric Felton rushed for career-high 206 yards and a touchdown, Brittain Brown added two scores on 72 yards as the Bruins defeated Arizona 27-10 at the Rose Bowl Saturday night. ''To have two backs ready to go like that makes it a whole lot easier,'' said Griffin, who got his first win as a starting quarterback.
After having to endure an unexpected four-week layoff, Jeff Sims played like he was determined to make up for lost time. Sims threw three touchdown passes and ran for 108 yards, setting career highs, and Georgia Tech beat turnover-plagued Duke 56-33 on Saturday night as each team returned from long layoffs. Led by Sims, the freshman quarterback, Georgia Tech (3-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) ended a three-game losing streak.
