PASADENA — California has made it halfway through coach Sonny Dykes' first season without beating another FBS team.

After another blowout loss, Dykes focused on the signs that the Golden Bears might be getting better very soon.

Brett Hundley passed for a career-high 410 yards and three touchdowns, and Paul Perkins rushed for an early score in No. 11 UCLA's 37-10 victory over Cal on Saturday night.

Jared Goff passed for 215 yards in the freshman's first game since his school-record 504-yard performance, and Daniel Lasco rushed for the Bears' only touchdown. But the Bear Raid offense didn't do nearly enough to keep up with Hundley, finishing with 320 yards on 80 offensive plays.

"We're learning, that's the thing," Dykes said. "We're a team that hasn't put a solid football game together all year. Defensively, we played well enough to have a chance, but offensively, we just struggled to execute basic plays."
