When Henry "Red" Sanders came to UCLA to coach football in 1949, the uniforms were redesigned. Sanders added a gold loop on the shoulders—the UCLA Stripe.

He dubbed the baby blue uniform "Powder Keg Blue," a powder blue with an explosive kick. .This would also differentiate UCLA from its older brother, UC Berkeley (and all other UC teams, as all UC campuses' official colors are blue and gold).^ Since 1927, Bruins of all ages have come out to support their school during Blue and Gold Week.

The school was originally a college for teachers, but became a university in 1919, and has been called UCLA since 1927. It was originally in Hollywood, but is now in Westwood. In 1950, it gained independence from the University of California, Berkeley. During the 1960s and 1970s, there were many student protests . [4]

The school has buildings designed by several famous architects, numerous gardens, fountains, and museums. It has academic programs in many fields, including a very famous Film School and medical programs in association with several hospitals.

UCLA has many good sports teams on the Division I level. Their teams are called the Bruins, or small bears. These teams have won 103 championships. The basketball team plays in Pauley Pavilion and has won 11 championships with players such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton and Gail Goodrich. The football team plays in the Rose Bowl. UCLA also has good volleyball and water polo teams, and has sent hundreds of athletes to the Olympic Games. UCLA has a strong rivalry with USC, the other university in Los Angeles, in all sports. There are lesser rivalries with Stanford, Cal and Notre Dame.
