UCLA vs. San Jose State Score Update: Spartans Tied At 17 With Bruins In Third Quarter

Maybe the UCLA Bruins did need Kevin Prince after all. The San Jose St. Spartans have come to play.

UCLA managed an early touchdown on a mid-first quarter drive thanks to rushes by Richard Brehaut, Johnathan Franklin, and Anthony Barr, with Franklin punching it in. San Jose State responded with an eight minute, 16 play, 88 yard drive with quarterback Dasmen Stewart completing six passes for 67 yards, including a third down AND a fourth down conversion. Stewart punched it in from the one to tie the Spartans up with the Bruins.

After two punts, Richard Brehaut went to the air, and found Nelson Rosario for a 43 yard catch down the middle, Taylor Embree for 18 yards down the right sides, and hit Joseph Fauria for a 14 yard touchdown to put UCLA back on top with a 14-7 lead going into halftime. After the Spartans and Bruins exchanged field goals, Spartan tailback Brandon Rutley burst forward for a 65 yard touchdown that totally lowered my esteem of the UCLA defense about a thousand points and tied things up at 17.

Since the two teams have deadlocked things up, the Bruins have fumbled the ball twice (once in the red zone) and the Spartans have thrown two interceptions twice (once in the red zone). It's that type of game.
