TEAMS: Boston Bruins
UCLA kept its raucous celebration in the locker room, with only a few tweeted photos providing any evidence. By the time the Bruins emerged from their Rose Bowl party following their 36-30 victory over Nebraska on Saturday night, they were all business again, insisting it was just another victory.

The Bruins (2-0) cracked the AP poll at No. 22 on Sunday, earning their first ranking in more than four years.
