Colorado can't maintain Pac 12 momentum

After getting off to a slow start, the UCLA Bruins took care of business on the road at Folsom Stadium, beating the Colorado Buffaloes by the score of 42-14 on Saturday.

The Bruins offense began the game with a slow start, but was able to extend their lead through every quarter of play. Meanwhile, UCLA's defense remained stout throughout the game as they held the Buffaloes to just 14 points, via passing touchdowns.

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley was the star of the game for the Bruins. The freshman threw for over 300 yards, completed 24 of 37 passes and found the end zone four times on the day -- two on the ground and two through the air.

Hundley was supported by senior running back Johnathan Franklin, who ran for 111 yards despite receiving just 11 carries in the game.

As aforementioned, the Buffaloes offense struggled on Saturday and the running game was virtually non-existent. As a unit, Colorado combined for just 35 yards on 29 carries.

Box Score Hero: Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley completed 24 of his 37 passes for 307 yards and four touchdowns.

Rankings Ramifications: The Bruins fell out of favor after losing at home against Oregon State, but this road victory will help them stay on track to get back into the rankings.

But Did They Cover? The Bruins were a 21-point favorite and were able to cover the spread.

Next Week's Schedule: UCLA will remain on the road and take on the California Golden Bears on Oct. 6 while Colorado will get the week off before taking on the Arizona State Sun Devils at home on Oct. 11.

Colorado entered halftime down 14 against UCLA

The Colorado Buffaloes entered halftime down 14 points at home against the UCLA Bruins on Saturday afternoon after the team has been unable to shake off the Bruins constant pressure both offensively and defensively.

While the Buffaloes closed the first quarter down just seven points, the team was unable to build on any momentum in the second quarter and entered halftime down 14 against the Bruins, who have dominated the game thus far.

Buffaloes quarterback Jordan Webb has completed just 13 of his 20 passes in the first half, but did throw for one touchdown and no interceptions. But if the Buffaloes want to open up their passing game, they'll need help from the ground.

The second quarter was all Bruins, however, as quarterback Brett Hundley is responsible for three of the four touchdowns scored in this game. Meanwhile UCLA's featured running back, Jonathan Franklin, nearly accumulated for 100 rushing yards.
