UCLA vs. Utah score: Bruins maintain 14-7 lead at halftime

The UCLA Bruins lead the Utah Utes, 14-7, at the half in the Rose Bowl. All 21 points were scored in the first quarter, as defenses tightened up in the second.

UCLA has put together two scoring drives that were polar opposites. The first touchdown came after a 13-play, 69-yard drive. Quarterback Brett Hundley ran the ball in from 12 yards out to cap it off.

The next Bruins score came on a 64-yard touchdown pass from the Hundley to Shaquelle Evans.

Sandwiched by the two UCLA touchdowns was a Utah drive that resulted in a punt. The punt was muffed by returner Steven Manfro. After a scramble, Utah's Ryan Evans recovered the ball in the endzone for the Utes' only points of the half.

Hundley has been efficient, completing 9/12 for 141 yards and a touchdown, as well as the rushing score. Utah will get the ball to start the second half.
