bRUINED The Happy Ending

The UCLA Bruins had a chance to finish a miserable season on a high note, but in typical Bruin fashion, they blew it. Defensively, they actually played well, but they continued their struggles on offense. It was quite funny that everytime I declared them officially out of the game, BYU would hand them a gift. Instead of going into the halftime locker room with an 11 point lead, the cougars decided to hand the ball off from their own 20 with only 14 ticks on the clock. Of course, they fumbled, set the Bruins up, and UCLA hung 7 before intermission.

Upon my second declaration of victory, The Cougars allowed the Bruins to travel the length of the field with just over a minute left to play. It was a drive that started on the Bruin 1 and extended to the BYU 10. Forbath had kicked field goals of 50 and 52 yards earlier in the game to bring the Bruins to within a single digit. Now with a chip shot in front of him, the Bruin season ends on a blocked kick and BYU victory. Could it have been any more fitting?

3 of the Bruin losses this season came against Utah, Notre Dame, and BYU. They should have their Pac 10 privileges revoked.
