FINAL: UCLA 58, Nevada 20

After a slow start against Nevada, UCLA ran away with an impressive 58-20 win to open the season. Most notable was Jordon James’ debut as a starting tailback. The 5-foot-9 tailback had entered the season averaging 3.3 yards per carry; after three quarters, he already had 155 yards on 21 touches.

Stat of the game? UCLA’s 345 total rushing yards. The Bruins’ best mark in 2012 was 344, in a 36-30 win over Nebraska.

Some questions still exist with a defense that bent early, but the ground game looked like a strong complement for Brett Hundley’s superlative quarterback play.

    Never will complain about an opening night win. Loved the O but the defense needs work before walking into Lincoln to face Taylor Martinez and company. The Huskers’ D gave up over 600 yards to Wyoming which would seem to bode well for the Bruin offense. We might have video game shootout a week from Saturday. Go Bruins!
