UCLA fans booed when Kevin Prince entered the game, but he delivered when the screws tightened.
And coach Rick Neuheisel really needed that.
A 58-yard pass from Prince to Nelson Rosario set up the Bruins go-ahead score, which included a 2-point conversion. Andrew Abbott intercepted Washington State QB Marshall Lobbestael on the next possession, and Prince and the Bruins were able to run off the final two minutes off the clock.
UCLA improves to 3-3 and 2-1 in the Pac-12. Washington State falls to 3-2 and 1-1.
The Bruins are off until they visit Arizona on Thursday, Oct. 20. The Cougars host Stanford next weekend.
