UCLA survives Utah, 34-27

In a game pock-marked by fumbles, injuries, interceptions and flags, UCLA survived an ugly game at Rice-Eccles Stadium, beating Utah, 34-27 to open its Pac-12 schedule. The Bruins grabbed six interceptions after entering Thursday with just one on the season, with freshman linebacker Myles Jack snuffing out the Utes last-ditch drive.

Brett Hundley, who appeared to injure his eye during the game, finished with 17 of 27 passing, 211 yards and a touchdown. He added one more touchdown catch from Devin Fuller. Running back Jordon James left the game near the end of the first half with an ankle injury and did not return.

    What a great game and great win for the Bruins.

    Thursday night games are upset specials.

    On the road; tough environment. It was hovering around 38 degrees all game and it started raining late.

    The PAC-12 refs once again make a mockery of themselves on national T.V. There were atrocious calls all night, including the phantom hold on a nice punt return. The placement of the ball was also a bit off all night. It appeared the refs were walking off a yard on each UCLA down.

    Utah played tough. They played inspired football. UCLA just played a little tougher and a little more inspired.

    Hundley: wow! Aside from the pick-six. What a game. Passing, rushing, and receiving touchdowns, that’s incredible. Also, nice pooch punt inside the ten.

    He also had to deal all night with bad snaps and a ferocious rush.

    What was up with the snaps tonight? Wow!

    Paul Perkins stepped up big after James went down.

    I think Barr should start getting more national recognition now. Enough with the highly overrated Clowney.

    The young secondary, simply wonderful.

    Career long kick for Fairbare (sp?)

    Good job Bruins.
