Quarterback Brett Hundley threw for a touchdown, caught one and ran for another Thursday night to lead No. 12 UCLA to a 34-27 victory over Utah that lifted the Bruins to 4-0 for the first time since 2005.

Hundley, who finished with 211 yards passing, threw an ill-advised pass into the flat that Keith McGill picked off and returned 19 yards for a touchdown to tie things at 24 with 13:23 left. But the sophomore quarterback followed with a 48-yard drive for the go-ahead field goal, then ran 36 yards for a score with 3:33 left to give UCLA (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) a 10-point advantage.

Utah (3-2, 0-2) pulled within seven and had the ball at the UCLA 23, but Travis Wilson threw his sixth interception of the night to end the game.
