Washington and UCLA had similar starts to the 2013 season. Washington won its first four, lost three in a row, won two and sits at 6-3 today. UCLA began 5-0, lost a pair, won two and stands 7-2. The principal difference is that the Bruins can still win the Pac-12 South, but Washington cannot win the Pac-12 North, by dint of playing in a division that also includes Stanford and Oregon.
