Fittingly, Kevin Craft came on in relief for Kevin Prince to finish out the win. After a couple of hand offs, he picked up a first down on third and nine to all but end the game.
Thanks Kevin for your two years of service as a true Bruin Warrior, showing a lot of heart and grit.
As usual, the Bruins started slowly with the defense giving up a touchdown on the Owls opening drive. After trading possessions, Terrence Austin got us great field position with a 47 yard punt return to the Owls 46.
From there, the Bruins took no time in scoring on the very next play - Prince to Rosario.
It was a frustrating first half as the defense gave up 21 points and only managed to get to the Owls quarterback once.
Meanwhile, Prince was inconsistent, throwing a terrible interception while deep in our own territory and less than four minutes left to the half leading to another Owl touchdown.
A different Bruins team emerged in the second half as we scored on our opening drive on a gutsy fourth and one call.
The defense came up big in the second half stopping the Owls at the UCLA 9 on 4th and about a foot.
Rahim Moore's 10th interception of the season put an end to the Owls next drive.
But the game-changer was Akeem Ayer's second pick-6 of the season, followed by the successful 2-point conversion.
Any thoughts of a come back by the Owls were ended as they sort of self-destructed at the end, epitomized by a botched punt attempt resulting in a safety.
Nice come-from-behind win by our Bruins, who showed no quit in tough conditions. Hopefully, this portends well for the future. In the meantime we can all relish this win and I know the warmest place in Washington D.C. right now is wherever Nestor is tossing down a few!
