The UCLA Bruins are the athletic teams that represent the University of California, Los Angeles. The Bruin men's and women's teams participate in NCAA Division I as part of the Pac-12 Conference and the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF). For football, they are in the Football Bowl Subdivision of Division I (formerly Division I-A). UCLA is second to only Stanford University as the school with the most NCAA team championships at 119 NCAA team championships.[2][3] UCLA offers 11 varsity sports programs for men and 14 for women.[4]

History

Nickname and mascot

See also: Joe Bruin

Upon UCLA's founding as the Southern Branch of the University of California in 1919, the football team was known as the "Cubs" because of its younger relationship to the California Bears in Berkeley. In 1923, the team adopted the nickname "Grizzlies." In 1926, the Grizzlies became the 10th and final member of the Pacific Coast Conference, which already included the University of Montana Grizzlies.[5] The school, which had taken the "University of California at Los Angeles" name that year, became the "Bruins" and has been recognized as such in the years since.[6]

The Bruins began to use live bears as mascots in the 1930s, renting animals to appear at all UCLA home football games at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The practice grew less common until the 1950s, when students and alumni brought "Little Joe Bruin" to Westwood. A Himalayan bear cub from India, "Little Joe" grew too large and was transferred to a circus. "Josephine" was purchased by a group of alumni in 1961 and was kept in the backyard of the Rally Committee chairman. She was eventually taken to the San Diego Zoo.[7]

A costumed mascot by the name of Joe Bruin was introduced in 1963.[8] In 1967, the first female student to take the mascot role created Josephine "Josie" Bruin and joined Joe at athletic events.[6] The design for the costumed bears has changed over the years, and Joe has had at least six looks over his history.[9]

Team colors

The UCLA athletic teams' colors are UCLA Blue and Westwood Gold.[10] Blue symbolizes the ocean and wildflowers; yellow to reflect the Golden State, the California poppy and sunsets.[7] The shades have shifted over the years with changing apparel sponsorships. The most recent update came in 2021 after Nike and the Jordan Brand began outfitting the Bruin varsity sports teams.

In the early days of the school, UCLA had the same colors as the University of California, Berkeley: Yale Blue and gold. When football coach Red Sanders came to UCLA for the 1949 season he redesigned the football uniforms. The Yale blue was changed to a lighter shade of blue. Sanders figured that the baby blue would look better on the field and in a film. He would dub the baby blue uniform "powder-keg blue."[11]

In 2002, UCLA Athletics and Adidas developed a new True Blue color that was darker than powder blue.[12] The shade was replaced in 2017 with a return to Powderkeg Blue when UCLA switched to Under Armour as its apparel provider.[13] In 2021, Nike and the Jordan Brand aligned the athletics blue with the university's UCLA Blue hue, which has been used by the school's academic and administrative units.[14]

The 2010 team, under head coach John Savage, won the Los Angeles Regional and Super-Regional, and was the first team to win 48 games in a season. The Bruins joined seven other teams in the 2010 College World Series and finished in second place, behind the University of South Carolina Gamecocks.[15] The 2011 team won the Pac-10 Conference title.

The 2013 team won UCLA's 109th NCAA Championship and their first in baseball in the 2013 College World Series by beating Mississippi State 3–1 and 8–0.

Many UCLA baseball players have gone on to play in Major League Baseball (MLB). In the 2009 World Series, Chase Utley hit two home runs to help the Philadelphia Phillies win Game 1. There were a total of four former UCLA baseball players in the 2009 playoffs: Philadelphia's Ben Francisco and Chase Utley, Colorado's Garrett Atkins, and St. Louis' Troy Glaus, who was the 2002 World Series MVP for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Chris Chambliss and Gerrit Cole were No. 1 overall picks in the MLB drafts. Trevor Bauer was drafted as the No. 3 pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks on June 6, 2011. Former UCLA shortstop Brandon Crawford hit a grand-slam home run in his major-league debut with the San Francisco Giants on May 27, 2011, and helped the Giants to win the 2012 Major League World Series. Cole debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates by winning his first four games he pitched and also drove in two runs with a single in his first at-bat in the 2013 MLB season.

Basketball (men)

UCLA Bruins vs. Oregon State Beavers, New Pauley Pavilion, January 2013

Several of the most revered championships were won by the Men's Basketball team under coaches John Wooden and Jim Harrick. The rich legacy of UCLA basketball has produced 11 NCAA championships – 1964, 1965, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, and 1995. From 1971 to 1974, UCLA won 88 consecutive men's basketball games, an NCAA record for men. Recent UConn Huskies women's basketball teams have set overall NCAA basketball records with 90-game and (ongoing) 91-game winning streaks. The 35-year period (1940–1974) preceding and including the UCLA streak was characterized by less dynasties, however: 20 different men's teams won titles during that span. In comparison, the women's game to date has produced 35% less (tournament) parity, with 13 schools winning all 35 titles offered since its inception.

Past rosters of UCLA basketball teams have included greats such as Rafer Johnson who was the 1960 Olympic Decathlon Champion, Gail Goodrich, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then known as Lew Alcindor), Bill Walton, Reggie Miller and Walt Hazzard. The Bruins also had a winning record for 54 consecutive seasons from the 1948–1949 season to the 2001–2002 season.[16]

In recent years, UCLA Men's Basketball was returned to prominence under Coach Ben Howland. Between 2006 and 2008, UCLA has been to three consecutive Final Fours, while UCLA's players have received numerous awards, most notably Arron Afflalo, a 2007 First-Team All American and the Pac-10 Player of the Year, and Kevin Love, a 2008 First-Team All American and the Pac-10 Player of the Year.[17] UCLA has produced the most NBA Most Valuable Player Award winners, six of them by Abdul-Jabbar and one by Walton, who was Abdul-Jabbar's successor.[18]

In March 2013, UCLA relieved head men's basketball coach Ben Howland of his duties after UCLA dropped an 83–63 decision to Minnesota in a second-round game of the NCAA Tournament. The current head coach is Mick Cronin, former head coach at Cincinnati.

Basketball (women)

Main article: UCLA Bruins women's basketball

In the 1977–78 season, the women's basketball team, with a 27–2 record, were the AIAW Champions under head coach Billie Moore. The 2014–15 team won the 2015 WNIT championship by defeating the West Virginia Mountaineers 62–60 on April 4, 2015.

Women's beach volleyball

The UCLA Bruins women's beach volleyball team plays in the Pac-12 Conference.[19] UCLA launched its beach volleyball program in 2013.[20]

Women's National Championships: 2018, 2019
The beach volleyball team won its first national title on May 6, 2018, by defeating Hawaii and Florida State at Gulf Beach Place, Gulf Shores, Alabama. They repeated one year later on May 5, 2019, defeating rivals USC to win the National Championship.

Cross country

The UCLA Bruins men's cross country team appeared in the NCAA Tournament thirteen times, with their highest finish being 5th place in the 1980–81 and 1981–82 school years.[21] The UCLA Bruins women's cross country team appeared in the NCAA Tournament eleven times, with their highest finish being 6th place in the 1985–86 school year.[22]

In 1954, the UCLA football team earned a share of the national title with a 9–0 record and a #1 ranking in the Coaches UPI football poll, while Ohio State was ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll. Owing to rules in place at the time, UCLA was unable to face off against Ohio State in the Rose Bowl, which would have resulted in one or the other being declared national champion. The Bruins have played in the Rose Bowl Game 12 times, winning 5 of them. The Bruins have won or shared the conference title 17 times. Among the many former UCLA football stars are Jackie Robinson (better known for his exploits as a baseball player, but nevertheless a 4-sport letterman and All-American), Heisman Trophy winner Gary Beban, Bob Waterfield, Troy Aikman, Carnell Lake, and Tommy Maddox. One of the great moments in recent history for the Bruins came on December 2, 2006, when they beat USC 13–9 in one of the greatest upsets in the rivalry. The Bruins are the Pac-12 Conference South Division Champions for two years in a row and played in both the 2011 and 2012 Pac-12 Football Championship Games.

UCLA became the first school to have a top winner in both basketball and football in the same year with Gary Beban winning the Heisman Trophy and Lew Alcindor (now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) winning the U.S. Basketball Writers Association player of the year award in 1968.

15 football players and coaches have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, John Sciarra being the latest inductee in the Class of 2014. A notable player and alumnus of the UCLA football team is current NCIS star, actor Mark Harmon. Winner of the "all-around excellence" award, Harmon led his team to victory several times as the quarterback.

The current head coach is Chip Kelly. Kelly was hired on November 25, 2017.

The UCLA Bruins men's football team have an NCAA Division I FBS Tournament record of 16–19–1 through thirty-six appearances.[23]

Golf

The UCLA Bruins men's golf team has won two NCAA Championships, in 1988 and 2008. In the 2008 national championship, the team was led by senior Kevin Chappell, who won the respective individual title. In that championship, UCLA won by one shot over USC, and by two shots over Stanford. In 2009, UCLA came first in the NCAA Central Regional, pulling off their third regional championship in the last seven years. With that victory, the defending national champions, advanced to their seventh consecutive NCAA Championship, a school record. For 2011, the Bruins were first in stroke play before losing in the match play of the national championship tournament; and freshman golfer Patrick Cantlay was named GCAA Division I Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year Award, the fourth player from UCLA.[24] Cantlay was also the National Freshman of the Year, winning the Phil Mickelson Award in addition to being the Pac-10 Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year.[25] Chappell won National Player of the Year in 2008, Corey Pavin in 1982 and Duffy Waldorf in 1985. At the 2011 U.S. Open, Chappell was the low American (tie with Robert Garrigus) and Cantlay was the low amateur. The team has won five Pac-12 Conference championships: 1982, 1983, 1985, 2003, 2006 and has had numerous individual conference champions the first of which was Peter Laszlo in 1970.

The women's team won the national championship in 1971 (DGWS), 1991, 2004 and 2011. In 2014, sophomore Alison Lee won the inaugural ANNIKA Award, which was created to honor the women's collegiate player of the year as chosen by a vote of coaches, college golfers, and members of the media.[26] In 2016, junior Bronte Law won the prestigious award as well.[27] The women's program also has many notable professional alumnae on tour, including British Open Champion Mo Martin, Sydnee Michaels, and Mariajo Uribe.

Former Bruin golf professionals include Scott McCarron, John Merrick, Corey Pavin, and Duffy Waldorf. Bruin alum Brandt Jobe tied for second at the 2011 Memorial Tournament. Maiya Tanaka, a member of the UCLA Women's Golf team from 2007 to 2009, competed with her sister Misa on The Amazing Race 20.

Main article: UCLA Bruins men's soccer

Since the beginning of the men's soccer tournament in 1959, UCLA has won national championship in 1985, 1990, 1997, and 2002; and finished second in 1970, 1972, 1973, and 2006. The men's soccer team won the 2008 Pacific-10 Conference championship and received the conference's automatic bid in the NCAA National Championship Tournament, their 26 consecutive appearances. The conference title makes it the sixth title in 9 years.[30]

Three UCLA alumni – Frankie Hejduk, Sigi Schmid and Mike Lapper – helped the Columbus Crew to win its first-ever Major League Soccer title by defeating the New York Red Bulls 3–1 in the 2008 MLS Cup.[31] Cobi Jones, USA's most capped national player, played for UCLA. Also, four former Bruin players, Carlos Bocanegra, Benny Feilhaber, Jonathan Bornstein and Marvell Wynne, were on the U.S. men's national team squad that defeated No. 1 ranked Spain in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup semi-final.[32]

The team was involved in the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal as head coach Jorge Salcedo was arrested, and indicted by a federal grand jury in Boston for conspiracy to commit racketeering.[33] His indictment charged Salcedo with taking $200,000 in bribes to help two students, one in 2016 and one in 2018, get admitted to UCLA using falsified soccer credential admission information.[34][35] As a result, he was placed on leave by UCLA from his coaching position at the school.[34][36] On March 21, 2019, it was announced that he had resigned.[37] On April 21, 2020, it was announced that he had agreed to plead guilty to the charges against him.[38]

The UCLA Bruins men's soccer team have an NCAA Division I Tournament record of 74–41 through forty-five appearances.[39]

Notable non-varsity sports

Badminton

The UCLA varsity men's badminton team won three national championships in 1977, 1981 and 1982.[82] The 1977 squad was led by Chris Kinard, multiple winner of the U.S. Men's Singles Championship before and during his career at UCLA. Kinard is a member of the U.S. Badminton Hall of Fame.

The women's varsity badminton team also won the AIAW intercollegiate championship in 1977.

Boxing

The men's and women's boxing teams have competed as part of the National Collegiate Boxing Association since 2016, after switching from the United States Intercollegiate Boxing Association. The women's team has earned three individual national boxing titles: one from the USIBA in 2014, and two from the NCBA, in 2016 and 2019.[83][84][85]

Ice Hockey

Rugby

Founded in 1934, UCLA rugby is one of the historically great college rugby teams.[86] UCLA won 3 national championships,[86] and amassed a 362–46–2 record from 1966 to 1982,[87][88] but the program lost its varsity status in 1982.[89] The Bruins play Division 1 college rugby in the PAC Rugby Conference. The Bruins are led by head coach Scott Stewart, who formerly played international rugby for Canada.[90] The team plays its home games at North Athletic Field.

UCLA rugby has been steadily improving in recent years.[when?] UCLA finished the 2010–11 season ranked 25th in the country.[91] In the 2011–12 season UCLA placed second in the Pacific Conference, reached the quarterfinals of the 2012 men's national playoffs,[90] and finished the season ranked 11th in the nation.[92] During the 2012–13 season, UCLA finished second in the PAC conference, highlighted by a 50–38 win over 6th-ranked Utah,[93] which propelled UCLA into a top-10 position in the national rankings. UCLA – along with fellow PAC schools Cal and Utah – was one of the original eight teams to form the Varsity Cup, which began play in 2013.[86] UCLA reached the quarterfinals of the 2015 Varsity Cup, before losing to eventual champions BYU.[94]

UCLA has also been successful in rugby sevens. UCLA reached the quarterfinals of the 2012 Las Vegas Invitational college rugby sevens tournament.[95] UCLA defeated Arizona State to finish third at the 2012 PAC 7s tournament.[96] UCLA defeated Dartmouth to reach the semifinals of the 2013 Collegiate Rugby Championship at PPL Park in Philadelphia in a tournament broadcast live on NBC.[97] UCLA again reached the semifinals of the 2014 Collegiate Rugby Championship, before losing, 17–20, to eventual champions Cal.[98] UCLA won the 2014 West Coast 7s with a 14–12 upset victory over Cal in the final.[99]

Athletics facilities

In 2014, UCLA named all of its recreation and athletics facilities in honor of Jackie Robinson, who was a four-sport student-athlete at the school and went on to play Major League Baseball as the first African American to do so in the league.[100] The Jackie Robinson "42" Athletics and Recreation Complex monument was installed in front of the John Wooden Recreation Center and was unveiled on March 5, 2016. The school also retired number 42 which was the number Robinson worn as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers.[101]

Two notable sports facilities serve as home venues for UCLA sports. Since 1982, the Bruin football team has played home games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. From 1923 to 1981, including the Bruins' 1954 National Championship year, the team played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles. The men's and women's basketball, women's gymnastics and volleyball teams play at Pauley Pavilion on campus. The softball team plays on campus at Easton Stadium. Down the hill, the water polo teams, as well as the swim and dive teams, compete at Spieker Aquatics Center. For baseball, there is the Steele Field at Jackie Robinson Stadium, located close to campus.

Olympic competitors

In addition to the success of its collegiate sports program, UCLA has been represented at the Olympics. In the 2004 Athens games, UCLA sent 56 athletes, more than any other university in the country. At the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Bruins won 15 medals, including 4 gold, 9 silver, and 2 bronze. Additionally, five coaches came from UCLA: Jill Ellis (women's soccer, gold), Guy Baker (women's water polo, silver), Bob Alejo (men's beach volleyball, gold), Jeannette Boldon (women's track and field, multiple medals), and John Speraw (men's volleyball, gold).

Symbolism

The Bruin mascots are Joe and Josephine Bruin. In addition to regular attendance at UCLA sporting events, the duo participates in other events for the university.

On September 30, 1984, the UCLA Alumni Association celebrated its 50th anniversary by installing "The Bruin" statue in Bruin Plaza. It was billed as the largest bear sculpture in the United States, at 10 feet long, 6 feet wide, 3 feet across and weighing more than 2 tons.[103]

The Solid Gold Sound of the UCLA Bruin Marching Band entertains crowds at major athletic and extracurricular events. The school fight songs are "Sons of Westwood" and "The Mighty Bruins." The spirit squad includes the cheer squad, the dance team and the yell crew, in addition to the mascots. The UCLA alumni band is the official band of the gymnastics team at the school.[104]

Rivalries

Main article: UCLA–USC rivalry

See also: California–UCLA football rivalry, Notre Dame-UCLA rivalry, and Arizona-UCLA basketball rivalry

UCLA shares a traditional sports rivalry with the nearby University of Southern California (USC). This rivalry is relatively unique[citation needed] in NCAA Division I sports because both schools are located within the same city, Los Angeles. The Lexus Gauntlet was the name given to a now defunct competition between UCLA and USC in the 18 varsity sports that both competed in head-to-head; in 2003, 2005, and 2007 UCLA won the Lexus Gauntlet Trophy, while the University of Southern California won the trophy in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2009. Competitions with official sponsorship were held from 2001 until the licensing contract ended in 2009. The annual football game features both teams vying for the Victory Bell.

California and UCLA have met annually on the football field since 1939.[105] Because UCLA was founded as the southern branch of the University of California, the series takes on the quality of a sibling rivalry.[106] The series was dominated early by Cal, followed by dominance by UCLA in the 1950s until 80s, and has become more evenly matched recently.

UCLA had a basketball rivalry with Notre Dame, with games played every year from 1966 to 1995.[107] After UCLA's victory on February 7, 2009, UCLA leads the all-time series, 28–19.[108] The performance of UCLA and Arizona influences the national opinion of the conference.[109]

UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame

In conjunction with the opening of the J.D. Morgan Athletics Center in November 1983, UCLA established an athletics Hall of Fame with 25 charter members representing a cross-section of the school's athletic history. Each year, a minimum of one and a maximum of eight former UCLA athletes, coaches or administrators are added to the Hall of Fame. Upon its 23rd year of existence, The Hall of Fame was moved to a new location facing Westwood Plaza. The new Hall of Fame is now double in size after its renovation and expansion, which was completed in the Winter of 2000. The first floor in the east wing of the new J.D. Morgan Athletics Center features the 8,000-square-foot (740 m2) Athletics Hall of Fame and serves as the main entrance to the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Athletics apparel sponsorships

From 1993 to 1999, the school had an apparel contract with Reebok.

In 1999, an agreement was reached with Adidas for six years, ending in June 2005. The deal was to provide equipment and apparel to UCLA's 21 intercollegiate teams. Additional terms of the deal included internship opportunities for UCLA students and an exclusive licensee for athletic replica wear.[110] The reported monetary terms of the agreement included $1.625 million in cash and $1.3 million in equipment each year.

In 2005, the deal was renewed for $2.6 million in cash and $1.6 million in equipment. Additional terms included one full-time Adidas employee on the UCLA campus, $2,500 each year for a "non-UCLA charitable" project selected by the Football or Basketball head coach, game tickets for Adidas executives, radio acknowledgements during games, and appearances by the Football and Basketball head coaches at Adidas events.[111]

In April 2010, a letter of intent to renew was reached between UCLA Athletics and Adidas.[112] By June of that same year the terms of the deal were finalized but not published.[113] In a report, UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero stated that the deal is for seven years and "will approach" the deal Adidas has with Michigan worth $7.5 million.[114]

In May 2016, UCLA signed a 15-year, $280 million deal with sportswear manufacturer Under Armour starting in the 2017–18 season.[115] In June 2020, Under Armour announced that it will be terminating its apparel deal with UCLA.

In December 2020, UCLA signed a 6-year deal with the Jordan Brand to outfit the football and men's and women's basketball teams.[116] Starting July 1, 2021, Nike also outfits the other 25 varsity sports teams at UCLA.[117]
