UCLA vs. Cal update: Golden Bears trail 7-3 after 1st quarter

The Cal Golden Bears were victimized by an early turnover, and the UCLA Bruins took advantage of a short field for a 7-3 lead 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.
