The Bruins took a 7-0 lead when Jamabo scored on a three-yard run to cap a 71-yard drive on UCLA's opening possession. The Rebels answered on their ensuing possession, driving 70 yards to tie the game on a 12-yard run by Thomas.
UCLA went up 14-7 when Jamabo recorded his second touchdown on a 23-yard run early in the second quarter. The Bruins extended their lead to 21-7 a few minutes later when Rosen threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Mossi Johnson.
Jamabo scored again on a seven-yard run to put UCLA up 28-7 midway through the second. UNLV trailed 28-14 at the break after Stanton threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Mekhi Stevenson in the final minute of the first half.
UNLV cut UCLA's lead to 28-21 when Stanton scrambled and scored on an 11-yard run in the third quarter, but UCLA finally put the Rebels away in the fourth when Bolu Olorunfunmi and Rosen both scored on one-yard runs, making it 42-21.
