For a drive, the Huskies converted on a couple of short-yardage situations, and tied the score on Jake Locker's 3-yard touchdown run at the 5:57 mark.
The eight-play, 61-yard march was set up by Cort Dennison's interception of Richard Brehaut's pass.
It started with easily the offense's most fluid play - a Locker-to-Devin Aguilar 22-yard strike along the right sideline.
Chris Polk got the Huskies a first down on a 2-yard run on third-and-inches with eight minutes to go.
Never miss a local story.
On second down from the UCLA 3, Locker took off left, and parachuted over Bruins' safety Rahim Moore for the score.
The UW had other scoring chances, but Erik Folks missed field goal attempts of 53 and 55 yards.
The 55-yarder was on the final snap of the first half - set up by Polk's 32-yard run, breaking five tackles along the way.
The UW has 165 yards; UCLA 117.
