Quarterback Brett Hundley is well aware UCLA has moved ahead of crosstown rival Southern California in the Top 25 and the Pac-12 South standings.
Hundley still isn't thinking about the Trojans - at least not until they meet next week.
But the freshman has heard all about it from his fellow students over the past two days since the No. 17 Bruins (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) routed Arizona 66-10, moving past USC into first place with three games to go.
UCLA has risen quickly in Jim Mora's first season, but the coach says there's no danger of the Bruins overlooking a trip to frigid Washington State (2-7, 0-6) on Saturday night.
Mora and Hundley are both uninterested in celebrating this strong start to an unfinished season.

UCLA's head coach was infuriated that someone would create a fake account for one of his players, and even went as far as saying the person responsible should go to jail.
I'll admit it, I wasn't a huge fan of the Jim Mora Jr. signing at UCLA last winter (read: I thought it was going to be a disaster), so I'm shocked an impressed that he has the Bruins sitting at #17 in the nation, 7-2, and first place in the Pac 12 South after throttling Arizona by 56 last week. I just feel morally obligated to throw one thing in before I give Mora too...
Posts on a phony Twitter account unleashed the inner Jim Mora on Tuesday.
The UCLA coach was angry about a person portraying themselves as freshman safety Randall Goforth. There were several posts made directed at USC receiver Robert Woods, which brought replies from Woods and others.
The account has been suspended. Not good enough, according to Mora.
I think its a joke that someone...

Ahh, social media - sometimes we love you a little too much. In fact it caused a near meltdown for UCLA head coach Jim Mora on Tuesday after someone created a fake Twitter account for one of his players, Richard GoForth, on Monday night. He's a freshman on the Bruins team...
Jim Mora review the tape of UCLA's big win over Arizona Saturday night, talks about the weather up in Pullman, and talks about the value of last week's practices...
According to SBNation, UCLA football coach Jim Mora brought his coaches into the locker room before their matchup with Arizona and asked his staff to paint their faces with eye black.
It seems that statement worked as UCLA crushed 22nd-rank Arizona 66-10, and no one was dumb enough to go full black face. I would call that a win-win.

UCLA HAS emerged from hibernation under Jim Mora. Coming off a 66-10 rout of Arizona, the No. 17 Bruins' confidence is at an all-time high. Having rediscovered their offense and their pass rush, UCLA has claimed the top spot in the Southern Division and is looking ahead to their showdown with USC next Saturday. But…
A fake Twitter account portraying UCLA Bruins freshman Randall Goforth caused quite an uproar Monday night. The Bruins are set to take on the crosstown rival USC Trojans on Nov. 17 and one imposter used the social media site to stir things up using Goforth as an alias.The account has since been shut down, and the identity of the imposter is still not known, but UCLA head coach...
UCLA already has enough to worry about when it comes to their football opponents, so the last thing they need is fake Twitter accounts stirring things up with rival players. Bruins head coach Jim Mora recognizes that, and he went off on a Twitter impostor for posing as freshman safety Randall Goforth and initiating trash talk with opponents.
The impostor Twitter account @RandallG300...
Brett Hundley knows what's going on in the Pac-12 South standings. His fellow UCLA students have told him all about it in the past two days since the Bruins climbed over Southern California to get on top.
But the freshman quarterback has been around Los Angeles long enough to know the crosstown rivalry shouldn't consume him. Even after No. 17 UCLA vaulted past the Trojans...
