UCLA REPORT CARD
RESULT: UCLA 34, No. 7 Texas 12
WEEK 4 GPA: A
The throwing game needs work, but really, does it? Kevin Prince’s ability to read the zone-run and take it himself – 38-yard TD run – was brilliant.
Johnathan Franklin and Derrick Coleman formed an incredible one-two punch (35 carries, 212 yards, two scores) against lofty Longhorns D.
Yet another dropped pass, but Nelson Rosario’s two late receptions were promising, and Ricky Marvray is a blast.
Can’t say enough about the job the newly dubbed “Filthy Five” has done the last two weeks.
Big uglies filled gaps, let defenders roam, and Keenan Graham looks like a budding star.
Forget current superstar Akeem Ayers and future star Patrick Larimore; Sean Westgate (11 tackles) was pivotal.
Chuck Bullough must have a blast scheming up UCLA DBs, especially with emergence of safety Dalton Hilliard.
Much written about UCLA’s two legs – Kai Forbath and Jeff Locke – but coverage and return game vastly improved.
The job that offensive staff has done with running game is nothing short of miraculous. An extra plus.
