Colorado at UCLA: Second Half Game Thread

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The UCLA Bruins look to get back on track against the Colorado Buffaloes. The Bruins take a 21-13 lead into the second half at the Rose Bowl.

This is the second half thread for UCLA's game against the Colorado Buffaloes.

The Bruins came in heavy favorites against a Colorado team yet to win a game in conference play. It seemed like this would be a great chance for Brett Hundley and the UCLA offense to get back on track against an extremely mediocre Colorado defense.

That was not to be the case as the Bruins went 3-and-out on their first two drives. Runs up the middle and Hundley runs on third down surprisingly did not catch anyone off guard.

The defense looked flat to start out, as Colorado was able to piece together yards, missing a FG and making another to take a 3-0 lead. UCLA answered back with a pass to the deep middle of the field, resulting in a gorgeous 76-yard TD reception by Devin Fuller from Hundley giving UCLA a 7-3 lead.

The defense still had not woken up in this game, as Colorado was able to pick apart the secondary moving down the field to score a touchdown on a back shoulder ball to Paul Richardson, taking back a 10-7 lead for the Buffs.

UCLA responded with the best drive of the last few weeks, outside of the scoring drive against Stanford. Hundley looked composed, threw the ball quickly and with excellent ball placement. Eventually scoring on a 11-yard TD scramble up the middle.

A huge hit by Cameron Judge and the UCLA kickoff team forced a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, leading to another TD pass to Devin Fuller giving UCLA a 21-13 lead.

A roughing the punter penalty gifted Colorado another FG attempt which they converted to cut it down to 21-13 with just over a minute left in the half. UCLA would miss a 45-yard FG to end the half after a penalty cost UCLA a shot at scoring.
