UCLA had all the expectations in the world going into AT&T Stadium to face the Texas Longhorns. With one awkward fall on an elbow, those expectations were nearly dashed. The Bruin’s leader, Brett Hundley, had injured his elbow and was out for the game. In his absence, Jerry Neuheisel took the reins and continued to lead the Bruins into a battle.
With Hundley out, the rebuilding Longhorns attacked both the Bruin’s offense and defense and almost upset the perceived national title contenders… but they forgot about Jerry. Though it took a few quarters, Neuheisel was able to get the offense going while the UCLA defense did their part in slowing down Texas.
