UCLA vs. Utah score: Bruins lead Utes, 14-7, despite special teams mistake

The UCLA Bruins lead the Utah Utes, 14-7, after one quarter of play in the Rose Bowl. The Bruins have dominated on offense, but made a big mistake on special teams that has kept the Utes within striking distance.

UCLA opened the scoring with 5:36 to go in the first quarter. Quarterback Brett Hundley took it himself for a 12-yard touchdown run that capped a 13-play, 69 yard drive.

The Bruins stopped the Utes and forced a punt on the next drive, but UCLA punt returner Steven Manfro muffed a punt that rolled into the endzone. Utah's Ryan Lacy fell on the ball to tie the game at 7-7.

It didn't take long for the Bruins to answer back. Hundley hit Shaquelle Evans on a 64-yard touchdown pass to put UCLA on top with 3:24 left in the quarter. Hundley has started fast, completing 7/8 passes for 105 yards.

Utah has the ball and faces a 4th and 1 in their own territory as the second quarter begins.
