The Bruins opened the game with a very nice drive, however at the one yard line our best WR decided to cough up the ball on what would have been a first and goal at the one. Helli and UW would play solid D the rest of the first half, finally after many punts back and fourth UW put a nice drive together that ended in a nice 30 yd td run on a counter that fooled us bad as the UCLA defense was over agressive and all crashed inside and got beat to the corner. 7-0 UW. What became a theme in this game was a UW score followed quickly by a UCLA answer. UCLA got the kickoff and three plays later we were in the endzone with about a minute left in the first half the game was tied at 7. UW tried to get something going right before the half but would toss a pick into traffic and UCLA got its first defensive TD of the season on the return and went to the locker room feeling very good about ourselves. The second half opened with more very good D, both teams QBs were erratic at times and threw some rather bad passes to nobody to the delight of both coaches I am sure. The Bruins would start a drive but a dropped pass was followed by a long gainer being taken away by a holding call on the young Bruin Oline. Then late in the third qtr or maybe early 4th UW put a quick scoring drive together torching our zone blitz scheme on that drive for an easy TD pass down the middle to a wide open WR. The game was tied up again at 14. The UCLA team went down the field on two plays we hit an out to the TE which Helli knew was coming but a great throw threaded the ball in there, then we hit an out route to the WR on the other side and caught UW being agressive and it was a walk in catch and run TD. UCLA leads 21-14. Both teams swapped picks and good D again. UCLA then mounted the game winning drive eating the last 3:45 of the game outside of a few ticks and kicking a FG for a ten point lead. UCLA wins this tough defensive game 24-14. GG Helli.
