Utah vs. UCLA 2012: Discontent in Bruins Nation

The UCLA Bruins improved to .500 in conference play and improved to 5-2 overall on the season after the team was able to beat the Utah Utes at the Rose Bowl by a score of 21-14.

The Bruins were led by quarterback Brett Hundley, who scored two touchdowns, threw for 183 yards and ran for 68 more. Running back Jonathan Franklin scored a touchdown and ran for 79 yards, and the defense was stout in allowing just 14 points.

Despite the respectable performance, SB Nation's UCLA Bruins blog, Bruins Nation, feels discontent with the team's success thus far, perhaps as a lasting effect from the team's loss to the California Golden Bears two weeks ago. Nonetheless, the Bruins have the opportunity to change their fans attitude, but it is up to them to do that.

If we can consistently play the type of football of which we are capable, I like our chances against anyone. It's up to this team to convince its fans that this is a team that they can trust, and that it is a team that it is definitely worth going along for the ride, because we will get where we expect to go.

The Bruins will have a bye week before heading out of state to take on the Arizona St. Sun Devils.
