Washington State falls to UCLA, 44-36

The Washington State Cougars, awash in controversy, were unable to defeat the UCLA Bruins.


UCLA is blowing out Washington State at the half

The Washington St. Cougars have seen a tie game balloon into a 30-point deficit as the UCLA Bruins lead, 37-7, at the half of their Pac-12 contest in Pullman.

The Bruins and Cougars are neck-and-neck in offensive production but the Bruins have been able to capitalize with touchdowns while the Cougars have not.

With it tied at 7 after the first quarter, the Bruins put three touchdowns on the board in only 3:32 of possession time. Quarterback Brett Hundley threw three second-quarter touchdowns to three different receivers as the Bruins have taken complete control over the game.

Cougars quarterback Jeff Tuel has 126 yards on 11-for-14 passing, while Hundley finished the half with 167 yards on 11-for-12 passing, three touchdowns and one interception. Neither team has really been able to run the ball against the other.

The Bruins have seized their opportunities while the Cougars can't seem to find the end zone anymore. The Bruins have even scored 16 points on a safety, an interception return and a fumble recovery.


UCLA, Washington St. all tied up after one

The Washington St. Cougars and UCLA Bruins have traded touchdowns in their Pac-12 contest in Pullman on Saturday and are tied at seven apiece after the first quarter.

The Bruins scored first after they blocked a field goal attempt by the Cougars and Roosevelt Davis picked it up and ran for a 68-yard touchdown to make it 7-0. But the Cougars came back with a 7-play, 90-yard drive that ended in a Connor Halliday touchdown pass to Dominique Williams to tie it up.

The Cougars have held the ball for over 12 minutes as UCLA's offense has barely seen the field. The Cougars, therefore, are dominating statistically with 166 yards of total offense compared to the Bruins' 22.

Cougars quarterback Jeff Tuel has 126 yards on 11-for-14 passing.

The Bruins are 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the Pac-12 coming into the game while the Cougars are still winless in the Pac-12 (0-6) and just 2-7 overall.
