UCLA vs. Cal update: Golden Bears lead 16-7 at half

The California Golden Bears scored a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter and enter half with a 16-7 lead over the UCLA Bruins.

UCLA started the quarter with a solid drive that took them inside California’s 30-yard line. Unfortunately for the Bruins, they fumbled the ball and it was recovered by the Golden Bears.

Cal capitalized on the turnover, driving 67 yards on eight plays for a touchdown. Golden Bears’ quarterback Zach Maynard threw a five-yard touchdown pass to C.J. Anderson for the score.

UCLA answered with a long drive of their own. Most of the work came on the ground, as running back Johnathan Franklin ran for 22 yards, while quarterback Brett Hundley added 20 more. However, Bruins kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn missed a 46-yard field goal that would have tied things up.

After being stopped for a three-and-out, California recovered a fumbled Bruins punt and marched 34 yards on five plays for their second touchdown of the quarter.

The Bruins threatened to cut into the lead prior to the half, but Hundley threw an interception that ended the drive.
