Not exactly the start the Arizona Wildcats were looking for. The unranked UCLA Bruins exploded in the first quarter for three touchdowns, none of which were answered by the No. 22 Wildcats. At the close of the first quarter, the hole Arizona has dug itself is quite large, with the Bruins leading, 21-0.
The first touchdown of the game was by Bruins' running back, Johnathan Franklin. It would be an historic 37 yard run for Franklin, as he assumed the top spot as UCLA's all-time leading rusher. Following the record setting touchdown, the Wildcats allowed another rushing touchdown, this time by Bruins' quarterback, Kevin Hundley. To close out the scoring spree for UCLA was Jordan Payton on a 17 yard TD pass from Hundley.
Arizona is struggling to get anything going on offense. After the first quarter, UCLA amassed 195 yards on offense to 'Zona's 21. The Wildcats are 0-for-3 on 3rd down conversions. Quarterback Matt Scott has completed 4-of-7 passes for 19 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions.
