Outstanding Defense not Enough for Bruins in Austin The UCLA Bruins(1-1) traveled to Austin, Texas to play the #3 ranked Texas Longhorns(2-0) in Week 4 of the season. The Bruins coming off their first win, against Southern Miss, would need a little more than luck on their side if they hoped to beat the Longhorns in their home stadium. They got it. In a game that saw the Bruins hold Texas to only two touchdowns, and 276 yards of Offense, and the Longhorns yield 321 yards to Hundley and Co, it ultimately saw the Bruins lose. After Texas took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, off a Johnathan Gray 9 yard run the Bruins defense clamped down. Powering their offense, of all things, to a 92 yard, 12 play drive off an interception for a touchdown off the feet of Brett Hundley, from 5 yards out. 7-7 at halftime. In a quiet third quarter, in the closing seconds, UCLA would wait until the fourth to kick the go ahead field goal, to kick with the 15 MPH winds, enough to give Fairbairn a shot. With 1:38 left, Texas at a 3rd and 11 from the 14 yard line, a blown Bruins assignment(Damn you Man Align!) would allow TE Andy Foster to get behind the defense, scoring the go ahead, Texas up 14-10. Hundley wouldn't flinch, and leading his team down the field, at 4th and 10 from the 30 yard line, he'd hit Devin Foster for 12 yards, or he would have, had Foster been able to take the hit from the crashing safety. The Longhorns would run the clock out from there, escaping with a win, 14-10. Final Score : UCLA 10 - 14 Texas Player of the Game : Texas TE Andy Foster - 2 Catches, 28 yards, 1 Touchdown
V Tech 15
The defenses really showcased themselves in this one. Miami was flying all around the ball and kept the V Tech offense to FGs for nearly the entire game. Denzel Perryman had 9 tackles including 7 for a loss. Tech made big plays in the running game as they had two over 100 yard rushers, but they couldnt turn those into touchdowns. For Miami they also were forced into a ton of Field Goals, but HB Ken Woodard really took the game over and had 14 Carries for 112 yards and was key in the win. Miami's only score on the day would come on a WR Reverse in the redzone.
Trojans win close one at Stanford!
