Virginia Falls Just Short Against #7 UCLA

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP)– UCLA scored three defensive touchdowns before Brett Hundley led them on a critical second-half scoring drive and the No. 7 Bruins escaped Virginia 28-20 in the opener for both teams Saturday.

Hundley, widely regarded as one of the nation’s top quarterbacks, was harassed all day by Virginia’s pressure defense, and made the biggest play of the day for UCLA with his feet. It came on a 6-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter when he overpowered safety Quin Blanding on a 6-yard TD run.

The Cavaliers, 21-point underdogs, trailed 28-20 and had a first down at the Bruins 19 late in the game, but three consecutive running plays netted just two yards and irritated the fans, and linebacker Myles Jack disrupted Matt Johns‘ fourth-and-8 pass to Doni Dowling and it fell to the ground.
