UCLA Football vs. Texas A&M Halftime Report: Bruins repeating 2016


We are at the halfway point of Game 1 in this 2017 season and the UCLA Football team are.  Texas A&M Aggies. Here is what has happened so far.

After a long off-season of having to live with the memory of their 4-8 record from 2016, the UCLA Football team was looking to turn things around in 2017. So far it felt a bit like 2016.

UCLA had started with an efficient drive that was more successful on the pass than the run. They got down the field to get a field goal and the first score of the game, UCLA up 3-0.

After that it was all Texas A&M. After a sack on Josh Rosen, which could be debated that it was an incomplete pass, TAMU went for a touchdown.

On the next drive, Bolu Olorunfunmi, fumbled and the ball was recovered by the Aggies, though they were held to a field goal.

But fear not! The Aggies scored another touchdown by the end of the 1st quarter, going up 17-3 after one.

Texas A&M started the second quarter scoring on bad run defense by the Bruins. After allowing a 72-yard run, the Aggies went up 24-3.

UCLA could not stop Texas A&M’s balanced attack while also unable to move ball. The Aggies managed another score another before UCLA got on the board again after a 54-yard Josh Rosen to Jordan Lasley pass set up a late half touchdown.

Unfortunately, the Aggies countered with another big run that went to the house. It was not a good showing.
