Texas-UCLA Football: Live Blog, Stats, Analysis
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen, Featured Columnist Dino Nicandros here, live blogging the Texas-UCLA game. We'll be watching to see if the Texas Longhorns (3-0) get caught looking ahead to their huge contest with Oklahoma in "Big D" next weekend, while the Bruins (1-2) are hoping to keep the momentum rolling after a convincing 31-13 victory over Houston.
For the next three hours or so I'll provide some play-by-play, color analysis, and any jacked-up Will Muschamp sightings. Feel free to comment below if you find anything of particular interest.
Welcome aboard. Looking forward to a great game!
Thank you all for hanging with me today. The Longhorns head to Dallas next week to take on OU, while UCLA heads out to play Washington State.
For the final time, UCLA wins 34-12.
Today's MVP: LB Akeem Ayers (1 sack, 1 Int, 1 ff)
As for UCLA, Rick Neuheisel scored a huge win for a program looking to get itself back on the map.
And that does it. Texas falls hard, 34-12 to UCLA. I don't know where Texas goes from here, but I'm not sure it could get any worse.
Wow...just...remarkable. Texas just hit rock bottom today.
The Coleman kid literally can't hear plays being called, yet he still runs rampant. Nothing went right for the Longhorns.
UCLA tacks on yet another touchdown on the legs of Coleman. 34-12 UCLA.
The final seconds are ticking down on a pretty horrific performance by the Texas Longhorns. It's back to the drawing board before OU next week.
Grandpa- "Go back to shotgun? Forget the run?" You know, that wouldn't be such a bad idea.
The Longhorns finally get into the end zone. Gilbert hits a wide open Kirkendoll. Too little, too late.
So now the offense decides to move. If we're learning anything positive, it's that Garrett Gilbert has a rocket. He just doesn't have anyone reliable to throw to.
I agree with Bevo, "Mooo...this is terrible".
With five minutes left, Texas has to score three touchdowns. Do you believe in miracles?
Second straight first down throw by Kevin Prince. The Texas defense is gassed, and there's not much they can do to stop UCLA's offense.
An illegal substitution penalty keeps the Texas defense on the field. The Longhorns are just out of it and can't help but shoot themselves in the foot.
John Chiles had no idea where the first down was and was stopped short on fourth down. That very well could have been the ball game.
UCLA is shocking Texas and the rest of the nation. End of the Third Quarter. UCLA 27 Texas 6
Kevin Prince waltzes into the end zone untouched. Texas is completely unraveling. UCLA up 27-6.
Now special teams is breaking down. UCLA has the ball at the 50.
Texas stalls inside the 20 yard line and settles for the FG. UCLA leads 20-6
The ball will seemingly be in Garrett Gilbert's hands from here on out. The Texas offense is moving.
Texas defense finally gets off the field. If the Longhorns are going to make a comeback it has to start now.
Texas' smaller defensive line is getting beaten up front on nearly every play.
John Chiles drops a pretty ball from Garrett Gilbert. Texas punts. There's trouble in Austin.
Jonathan Franklin is breaking tackles with ease, and he just waltzed in for an 11 yard touchdown. We've got a shocker right now. UCLA is up 20-3.
