LA Times: Cal puts its Best foot forward in 45-26 win over UCLA

About the time California's Jahvid Best was weaving his way through what looked like powder blue pylons, slipping tackle after tackle against the UCLA defense, the idea that there was a problem should have crossed the Bruins' minds.  Best's 93-yard touchdown run underscored the Bears' ability to make big plays -- and the Bruins' inability to prevent them -- in Cal's 45-26 victory Saturday in a Pacific 10 Conference game at the Rose Bowl.  By the time Cal linebacker Mychal Kendricks was sailing down field on a 68-yard interception return to polish off things, the Bruins probably realized their season was in critical condition.

All the feel-good giddiness of a 3-0 start has been spent after a third consecutive loss that left UCLA 0-3 in Pac-10 play. The Golden Bears (4-2, 1-2) tapped that account dry with three offensive touchdowns of 42 yards or more. So where do the Bruins go from here?
