The Bruins look much better, but there’s still room for lots of improvement.

NCAA Football: UCLA at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

UCLA is down by just a point at the half in Boulder.

The Bruins scored first on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Dorian Thompson-Robinson to Michael Ezeike that capped an 8-play, 47-yard drive. That drive followed a 32-yard punt return by Kyle Phillips that put the Bruins into Buffalo territory.

Unfortunately, on the next drive, Darnay Holmes got beat bad on the very next drive when Laviska Shenault Jr. burned him on a 57-yard touchdown pass that tied the game.

The Bruins came right back and moved 71 yards down to the Colorado 4-yard line in one of the longest drives of the season so far. But, the drive stalled when Thompson-Robinson could not complete a third down pass to Caleb Wilson and UCLA had to settle for three points.

On the Buffaloes’ first drive of the second quarter, Colorado was aided by a 15-yard penalty on Nate Meadors for a horse collar tackle that kept the Buffalo drive alive. Eventually, Steven Montez scored on a 10-yard run.

On the Bruins’ final drive of the half, they drove 42 yards before settling for another JJ Molson field goal.

Overall, the Bruins seemed to have found a rhythm for their rushing game, but the Thompson-Robinson is still struggling completing passes. He was just 12 of 19 for 96 yards in the half. Josh Kelley leads the team with 59 yards rushing so far.
