Messed with Texas
A 2 touchdown dog to #7 Texas away in Austin, UCLA shocked the country by absolutely manhandling the supposed #1 ranked run defense, winning 34-12. Its one thing to beat #23 Houston at home and rush for 266 yards last week, quite another to do it on primetime national TV against a powerhouse, finishing with 264 rushing yards in Austin. Who cares if our passing game is completely inept with 27 total yards? At least for this week, not Bruin fans. Though we've had offenses with prolific passing attacks (Cade McNown, Drew Olson - 1 season), we've never been a ground n pound team, at least not while I've been a fan. I'm not quite sure what to do with myself.
Johnathan Franklin rushed for 158 yards and 3 TDs last week vs the Cougars and this time hung another 118 yards, 1 TD on the Longhorns. (Derrick Coleman and Kevin Prince also combined for 144 yards, 2 TDs.)
