UCLA REPORT CARD
RESULT: USC 28, UCLA 14
WEEK 12 GPA: C-
Richard Brehaut wasn’t awful, but have to feel like he could’ve done so much much more against suspect USC pass defense.
I don’t care if Johnathan Franklin fumbles every time he touches the ball, there’s ZERO reason for giving him one carry in second half.
Dropped touchdown by Taylor Embree sullied what was an other-wise decent night.
Expected more out of offensive line featuring four senior starters 12 games into season, even against talented Trojan defensive line.
David Carter, Cassius Marsh looked impressive in pass rush, but little else from front four.
Akeem Ayers – three tackles, .5 tackle-for-loss – continued recent run of baffling play. Is he still a first-rounder?
Aside from Allen Bradford’s 47-yard screen touchdown, very impressive game by UCLA DBs, particularly Tony Dye (13 tackles, interception).
Shame of all shames: Four USC games, zero field goal attempts for Kai Forbath.
Offensive play-calling still confounding, but defensive game-plan good until fourth quarter.
