THE 25TH YEAR - The 2006 season marks the 25th year that the Rose Bowl has served as the home of the Bruins. UCLA moved from the L.A. Coliseum in the summer of 1982 and went 6-0-1 in that first year, capping the season with a victory over Michigan in the Rose Bowl game. The season-opening win against Utah was UCLA's 100th at the Rose Bowl. The Bruins own a record of 101-43-2 since moving to Pasadena, including a 3-2 record in Rose Bowl games. UCLA is 16-4 under head coach Karl Dorrell, including a current streak of eight straight wins.
