    Houston, TX - After stopping Houston's offense and forcing a punt, the UCLA Bruins marched down the field and looked to score an easy TD. However, the offense suddenly became anemic and settled for a FG from their freshman kicker. At this sudden stop of momentum, UCLA fans wondered if this would be another low year under new head coach FacePlant City.

    The UCLA defense stopped the Houston offense once again and this time the offense capitalized with a TD to TE M. Presley.

    This score gave the UCLA offense heavy momentum as heavy Sr HB Derrick Coleman would rumble for a 56 Yard TD. The Bruins did not look back from then on.

    Both UCLA HBs had great days. However, Coleman gave the offense more of a spark and created more scoring opportunities.

    Coach Faceplant City had this to say:

    "As many know, we have an immense amount of HBs on our depth chart. We have talent all over the place. We will keep alternating the running game with the quicker pace of HB Johnathan Franklin and the power game of HB Derrick Coleman. For right now, however, Coleman has made great strides and will be the starter for us unless things start to change."

    The passing game was on target as well as Kevin Prince went 14-19 for 219 yards and 2 TDs. Many of these passes were very spread out to all of the WR core and TD to star WR Nelson Rosario.

    Houston's passing game was off and on and created two TDs for them very late in game. QB Turner and their HB Charles Sims caused the most trouble on offense.

    UCLA looks to keep their momentum throughout their BYE week practice before their first big test against Michigan.

    "I will not let this program decline as it has in the past year."

    Players of the game:

    UCLA - HB Derrick Coleman - 12 Att, 104 yards, 2 TDs

    Houston - QB Cotton Turner - 42 Att, 27 Comp, 285 yards, 2 TDs

    After a magnificent win against Heisman candidate HB Dyer and the Auburn Tigers, the Wolverines went on the road to UCLA to see if they could keep their momentum going.

    However, momentum would be halted by the intense play of the UCLA defense.

    The game stayed close the entire game as the UCLA offense played with a very strict ground game and tried to manage the game. However, when passing was needed the most UCLA QB Kevin Prince delivered going 11-18, 167 yards for a TD and an interception. The game was more focused, however, on the running of Senior HB Derrick Coleman going 96 yards and 2 TDs of 19 carries.

    While the rushing of the Wolverine offense was non-existant, the passing was on target due to the play of QB Tate Forcier and a HUGE play that kept Michigan in the game with a run by TE K. Koger all the way down the sideline right after half.

    UCLA held on to a tight lead throughout the entire game and was finally threatened when Michigan scored and only needed a 2-point conversion to tie the game late in the 4th. However, the 2-point conversion would fail in part due to the pressure brought on by the UCLA D-line that was seen all game (4 sacks total).

    The onside kick by the Wolverines was flagged for catching the ball too early, and UCLA attempted to run out the clock but failed in doing so entirely and ended up punting. With only around 40-50 seconds left, the Wolverine offense had to go down the entire field and get a FG for the win but were halted by an interception by the tough UCLA defense who ran it back to the 1-yard line and fell to the ground to seal the victory for the UCLA Bruins.

    Coach FacePlant City had this to say:

    "Very close game. I think we could've been further ahead without some dumb play calls on offense and defense by myself and the coaching staff. However, we still pulled out the victory against a very stacked Michigan team. HB Coleman really kept putting us in great position and if he couldn't finish QB Prince would do it for him through the air. If either of them could finish, the defense stepped up ALL GAME. This was a huge win for our team going forward and I give all of the credit in the world to Coach Big Suge for a great game!"
