2nd Half Thread: Utah leads UCLA 27-21

Josh Rosen is out for his second game in a row, and Mike Fafaul has looked good--when he's not turning the ball over.

After the Utes returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, then scored a second touchdown after a UCLA 3-and-out, the Bruins totally abandoned the run. In mostly four-wide formations, Fafaul lead an uptempo spread offense, with the help of some Utah penalties, to three straight touchdowns, and a 21-14 lead.

The offense has passed the ball 37 times, while running the ball only 7 times--with a very 2016 UCLA yards per carry of just under 2 yards, gulp.

But, Mike Fafaul has thrown two interceptions and fumbled the ball after he scrambled for what would have been the Bruins longest rushing play.

Andy Phillips, Utah's Mr. Automatic, missed a field goal from 44 yards, but his other two provide the difference in the score.
