Brett Hundley passed for 189 yards and ran for 131 more, and No. 25 UCLA pulled its season back from the brink with a dominant defensive performance in a 17-7 victory over No. 14 Arizona on Saturday night.

Paul Perkins rushed for a touchdown and Hundley threw a 70-yard TD pass to Jordan Payton during the decisive third quarter. The Bruins (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12, No. 22 CFP) stayed in the Pac-12 South race with their first home victory in nearly two months.

Anu Solomon went 18 for 48 for 175 yards on a nightmarish offensive night for the Wildcats (6-2, 3-2, No. 12 CFP), who couldn't score in the final 57 minutes. Arizona has lost three straight to UCLA since coaches Rich Rodriguez and Jim Mora joined the Pac-12.

Cayleb Jones caught a TD pass on Arizona's opening drive, but its prolific offense was shut out by UCLA after that.
