UCLA is in the middle of a cat-fight with the Colorado Buffaloes in Boulder as we speak and, at the half, our Bruins lead
Of course, the score looks alright, but the game has been pretty maddening on a play-by-play basis. The Bruins’ offense squandered some opportunities early on, confirmed by UCLA’s outgaining of Colorado by 100 yards to start the first quarter.
Of course, UCLA figured it out and found the endzone on a Brett Hundley run.
Not too long after, Hundley decided to follow that up with a gorgeous, 17-yard touchdown pass to Darius Bell, the first touchdown reception of Bell’s career.
Colorado got their licks in, though, exposing our secondary — which, if you’ve forgetting, is absolute crap most times — to the tune of 104 yards passing and an easy-as-hell CU touchdown when the Buffs drove down the field. On that drive, Aaron Hester was the easy goat (shocker, it wasn’t Sheldon Price this time around).
UCLA responded, though, with an incredible fake from Brett Hundley for Hundley’s second touchdown run of the game.
Overall, Hundley’s proving to make a case for the best QB in the Pac-12. Hundley’s 18-for-23 so far, and has thrown for just under 200 yards and a touchdown, to go along with two touchdown runs.
Defensively, UCLA’s front-seven has been fantastic as always, putting pressure on that Colorado backfield to get the ball out quickly. Most notably, Anthony Barr has looked as explosive as he’s ever been, and Damien Holmes has wreaked his fair share of havoc.
Overall, it was a good half, despite my bitching on Twitter.
