UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson is having himself a busy day at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. He’s not only leading the Bruins against crosstown rival USC, he’s also signing autographs for fans.
Thompson-Robinson, who helped UCLA take a 28-17 halftime lead, scored his fourth total touchdown of the day with a 4-yard scamper near the end of the half. Following the play, a fan in the stands reached down with hat and pen in hand and asked the senior quarterback for an autograph.

Unfortunately for the Bruins, Thompson-Robinson was called for unsportsmanlike conduct — you can see the official pulling him away from the fan — which gave the Trojans a shorter field on their ensuing drive. They made good on the free 15 yards, scoring a touchdown with 23 seconds remaining to make the score 28-17.

The move may have cost UCLA in the moment, but that lucky fan will probably remember the gesture for some time. The job now for Thompson-Robinson is to make sure the Bruins stay on top. He has completed 11 of 17 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns to two interceptions. He also has seven rushes for 27 yards and the score.
