Photo highlights of the match-up between the visiting Utes of Utah and our UCLA Bruins at the Rose Bowl

Things were a little shaky early at today's game, but we ended up getting the win.

P1160655
Damien Thigpen returned the opening kickoff to the 34-yard line.

P1160694
Brett Hundley scrambled a lot today starting with the opening play.

P1160695
But he landed a bit awkwardly and after a second down pass that was way off the mark, the Bruins took a timeout to assess his injury.

P1160721
Hundley was good to go and completed a pass to Thigpen, but it ended up short of the first down.

P1160730
So in comes our most consistent player.

P1160890
On our next possession, Hundley completes a pass to Steven Manfro, but it's a two-yard loss.

P1160909
Jordan James finds a hole and runs for 4 yards.

P1160956
Shaquelle Evans reaches high for a 5-yard reception.

P1170032
After catching a pass, Joseph Fauria tries to put a move on the Utah defender...

P1170033
...going air-born in the process for a 12-yard gain and a first down.

P1170057
Thigpen gains 7 yards down to the Utah 23.

P1170113
Johnathan Franklin gets 5 down to the 12 yard line.

P1170127
And Hundley does the rest, keeping the ball on the zone read...

P1170128
...as a defender keys on the wrong guy...

P1170133
...Hundley weaves through the defenders getting great blocks from Torian White (#77) and Xavier Su'a-Filo (#56)...

P1170134
...as he easily...

P1170139
...makes it into the end-zone.

P1170150
Yay Bruins!

P1170160
After the PAT from Mr. Reliable (under 40-yards) Ka'imi Fairbairn, Bruins lead 7-0.

Utah tied it up on a silly special teams mistake, but on the following possession, the Bruins answered quickly. P1170233
The drive began innocently enough with a 1-yard gain by Franklin.

P1170279
Hundley completed a 10-yard pass play to Jordan Payton for a 1st down.

P1170306
Then Hundley connected with Shaq Evans on a 64-yard catch and run for a touchdown (while I was fumbling around with my camera). UCLA led 14-7 at the Half.

The lead was extended to 21-7 with a 66-yard drive on the Bruins' first possession of the 3rd quarter. P1180324
Franklin started things off with 3-yard gain.

P1180343
Manfro added 4 yards on a pass play.

P1180371
Facing 3rd and 3, Hundley scrambled 6 yards for a first down.

P1180403
An illegal block made it 1st and 21 and Hundley completed a pass play to Fauria for 6 yards to the UCLA 42.

P1180426
Hundley had to use his legs again, this time for 13 yards to the Utah 45.

P1180440
JetSki ran 5 yards for a first down.

P1180450
The Bruins ran the same play and this time JetSki got another 1st down and gained 18 yards.

P1180503
After two incomplete passes, scrambling again, Hundley gained 9 yards to the Utah 13.

P1180517
Facing 4th and one, the Mayor came through for 4 yards and a 1st down.

P1180539
If the Mayor is hot, give him the ball! Showing incredible balance, Franklin gains another 6 yards down to the 3 yard line.

P1180555
You'd think the Utes would figure it out, but Franklin leaves defenders in his wake on the way to the end-zone.

P1180557

P1180589
With the PAT the Bruins are up 21-7 and hang on to win 21-14.
