San Jose State managed to find the end zone to equalize barely into the second quarter, but UCLA was able to go back ahead with just over five minutes left in the half. UCLA scored when Richard Brehaut found Joseph Fauria with a fourteen yard strike. San Jose State score on a one yard run by David Freeman, capping off an 88 yard drive.
In a similar story to last week, UCLA has scored on drives full of big plays. Their last scoring drive went 75 yards in just over two minutes, and consisted of just six plays. Conversely, SJSU dinked their way down the field for only thirteen more yards, but used sixteen plays in eight minutes.
With both teams with under 200 total yards, it hasn’t been an offensive clinic. SJSU is dominating possession, but also has racked up 93 yards in penalties. If the Spartans settle down, they’re in this game. UCLA will have to play a solid second half, or risk letting SJSU right back into this one.
