|Projected Scoring Margin: California by 7.8|
|Actual Scoring Margin: UCLA by 2|
California won the field position battle by nearly 15 yards per possession, benefited from turnovers by more than two touchdowns, and, based on equivalent points and turnovers, should have won this game by almost eight points. So how did the Bears lose (aside from "they got screwed by an interception call at the end")?
UCLA nearly returned a kickoff for a touchdown and set up an easy score that way. So that was part of it. And the Bears were below average in terms of turning scoring opportunities into scores. Maybe that makes up the difference?
But yeah, terrible interception call at the end.
