UCLA’s 2021 college football season got off to a promising start Saturday with a 44-10 victory over Hawaii at the Rose Bowl.

It marked UCLA coach Chip Kelly’s first nonconference win since he arrived in Westwood. Next week’s game against Louisiana State should offer a better measure as to how the Bruins will stand in the Pac-12 this season.

Here are some of the best photos of UCLA’s win over Hawaii from veteran Times photographer Luis Sinco:
