The Cardinal (7-5-2, 1-4-1) outshot UCLA 15-8 but couldn't hold on after freshman Jordan Morris got his fifth goal of the season by slipping past two defenders in the 31st minute. Gage Zerboni tied it in the 40th, and Nathan Smith put the Bruins (9-3-4, 4-1-3) ahead two minutes into the second half. Top-ranked Cal (11-1-2, 5-0-1 Pac-12) posted a 3-2 win over San Diego State (5-9-1, 2-5-1), giving coach Kevin Grimes career win No. 150. The Bears scored three goals in a six-minute flurry in the first half to take a 3-0 lead. Carlos Monte (James Lick) scored inside the box in the 98th minute, giving Santa Clara (7-8, 4-3 WCC) a 1-0 overtime win at Portland (8-8, 4-4).
