California at UCLA


Full Results UCLA: 198.050 California: 197.200
VT: Campbell 9.950 UB: Chiles 9.975 BB: Malabuyo 9.975 FX: Chiles 10.000 AA: Chiles 39.800

The Big Storyline: Powered by three all-arounders over 39.700—Jordan Chiles, Norah Flatley and Chae Campbell—UCLA exploded for a massive score to break 198 and easily defeat Pac-12 co-champion California. Little errors plagued the Golden Bears, who could not keep up with the barrage of 9.9s the Bruins put up to offset the errors of their own, with Chiles reaching perfection on floor for the second time this season.

Implications: Even with the giant total, the Bruins will only rise marginally due to some much lower away scores they’re unable to drop. The Golden Bears’ new road best should also see them rise. California had a chance to secure the regular season Pac-12 title with a win but ended up sharing the title in a four-way tie with Arizona State, Oregon State and Utah.

Records: Bruin Emma Malabuyo’s beam winning total is a new career best along with her 9.950 on floor.


Current Rankings: No. 8 California at No. 17 UCLA

Why You Should Cancel Plans for It: An already anticipated matchup got even bigger stakes after California’s upset loss last weekend. The Golden Bears have already clinched a share of the Pac-12 regular season title and need a win on the road against UCLA to prevent Utah from claiming a share of the championship.

What We’re Watching: The Bruins are still in need of a statement victory this season, and a victory over the Golden Bears would give them positive momentum heading into the postseason. Jordan Chiles and Emma Malabuyo have had great freshmen seasons as all-arounders, but it was Chae Campbell and her perfect 10 on floor that stole the show to lead UCLA last weekend. All three Bruins will face tough competition from California’s slew of all-arounders in Neveah DeSouza, Andi Li and bars national champion Maya Bordas.

The event is finished.
