Unranked - Not a good way to finish the season. - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
After losing three consecutive games to end the season, Bruins finish a promising year on a very disappointing note in Mora's first year at UCLA.
Unfortunately for UCLA football the final rankings are not laughing matter. After finishing the regular season at number 17 and coming so close to the Rose Bowl, Bruins finished unranked in all major polls. It just confirms the fact while Jim Mora met the minimum expectations in his first year at UCLA and has the program on the right director, it wasn't a total success.
The bar is going to much higher next year and that certainly will include finishing the season as a top ranked program (along with a must win at the Mausoleum over what is now basically a crippled and irrelevant Southern Cal under Hello Kiffin).
