What the UCLA domination of Colorado proves

The UCLA Bruins faced some tough questions after a loss to Oregon State, and they answered at least one of those questions with a 42-14 dismantling of the Colorado Buffaloes.

UCLA moves to 4-1 with easy win

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.

UCLA enters halftime up 14 over Colorado.

The UCLA Bruins closed out the first quarter with a slim seven point lead, but the team was able to extend it to 14 and enter halftime with a 21-7 lead over the Colorado Buffaloes.

After scoring the only touchdown of the game in the first half, Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley scored two more in the second quarter for the Bruins, one via the air and the other on the ground.

In the opening minutes of the second quarter, Hundley connected with Darius Bell on a 17 yard pass for a touchdown. The quarterback later found the promise land once again with 2:14 left in the first half, after he was able to sneak in a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Bruins running back Jonathan Franklin continued his dominance, too, accumulating for nearly 100 rushing yards in the first half alone. The senior running back did that in just ten carries, making it all the more impressive.

On the other end, UCLA's defense has stifled the Buffaloes offense thus far. The Bruins defense has held the Buffaloes to -30 yards and have allowed just 104 yards via the air, including a 17 yard passing touchdown.
