An utterly forgettable first half. The Bruins better have some pretty major adjustments to get back in this game.
The Bruins came into this game with the hopes of a fan base that we are finally seeing the rebirth of Bruin football. Instead, the first half showed us ugly reminders of the past: little intensity, dumb penalties, bad tackling, unimaginative offense, poor discipline, making the opponent's defense look fantastic, being outcoached, being outplayed, and facing an early 21-0 deficit.
Baylor then turned the ball over and the Bruins cashed in a touchdown and looked like they might climb back in this game. Instead, Baylor got a gift first down, we followed with another personal foul, and then more shoddy defense recovered and extended their lead. Baylor 35, U.C.L.A. 10 at the half.
The Bruins have 2 more quarters to show us we were right about this team. Let's see what we've got.
