The UCLA Bruins are tied with the Arizona St. Sun Devils after one quarter of action in Arizona, 14-14. Things started ugly for after a muffed punt by Steven Manfro and a long ASU drive resulted in a 14-0 lead for the Sun Devils, but the Bruins have been able to settle in and make some gains.
Those gains have come almost entirely on the ground, either on rushing plays or on yards after the catch. Johnathan Franklin looks on his way to the kind of day UCLA needs from him, with 72 yards on nine carries in the first quarter. Brett Hundley has yet to stretch the field, but he did hook up with Devin Fuller, a true freshman recruited as a quarterback. Fuller caught a 15-yard pass in the end zone for UCLA's second score. Overall, Hundley is 5-of-9 for 63 yards.
ASU has been having their own success on offense, gashing the Bruins on their first full drive with a 10-play, 75-yard drive on a number of big runs. UCLA's defense appeared to be standing up, forcing a three-and-out on Arizona St.'s third drive, but as time expired in the quarter, they were again moving the ball.
