Arizona Wildcats Destroy UCLA In Wild West Massacre, 48-12

It was a pretty wild night in Tucson, AZ with the Arizona Wildcats doing far more than win their first game against and FBS opponent in 10 tries. The UCLA Bruins came into the desert and played the role of hapless victim to a tee, giving up six first half touchdowns to the Wildcats on all six of their first half possessions.

The second half of the game provided little of interest beyond the first two career field goals for the Wildcats field goal kicker, John Bonano.

The win comes in the first game for Arizona under interim head coach Tim Kish. Kish stepped in after Mike Stoops was fired by the school after the team started the season 1-4. 

The end of the first half featured a fan impersonating an official who then ran off the field shedding his costume all the while giant brawl between the two teams erupted. 

Arizona put up a whooping 573 yards of offense against the Bruins with quarterback Nick Foles going 26-39 for 290 yards and three touchdowns, all to Juron Criner. The Wildcats held UCLA to just 37 yards on the ground while they put up 255 of their own.

The win helps the ASU Sun Devils who were competing with UCLA for the Pac-12 South Division title.
