Through five games of the abridged 2020 college football season, everything was finally coming together for Dorian Thompson-Robinson.
For the first time in his three years as UCLA quarterback, the Bruins had a winning record. Thompson-Robinson’s completion percentage, yards per attempt, touchdown-to-interception ratio and yards per carry were all up compared with his past efforts. And a statement game against rival USC was on tap at the Rose Bowl.
But, despite Thompson-Robinson putting on a show with more than 400 yards of total offense, the Bruins fell just short in the battle for the Victory Bell.
