UCLA vs. Cal update: Bruins lead 7-3 after 1st quarter

The UCLA Bruins took advantage of a short field early and have a 7-3 lead over the Cal Golden Bears after the first quarter in Berkeley.

Cal's first possession ended on the fourth play of the game when Zach Maynard was intercepted by Andrew Abbott, giving UCLA a 28-yard field. Taking a full seven plays to go 28 yards, the Bruins scored when Brett Hundley hit Cassius Marsh -- a defensive end playing tight end -- for a four-yard touchdown pass.

Maynard led Cal on a long 15-play drive on its next possession. The lefty completed seven passes on the drive to get the Golden Bears inside the UCLA ten-yard line, but was sacked on third down. Vincenzo D'Amato put through a 26-yard field goal for the 7-3 score.

Maynard's interception is the only turnover of the game. Cal has outgained UCLA 90-62 through one frame, but Hundley has been an accurate 7-9 for 40 yards and the score.
