UCLA was in perfect position to take a two-touchdown lead, with a second and goal from the Cal one-yard line, but had to settle for J.J. Molson’s 25-yard field goal that gave the Bruins a 10-0 lead early in the second quarter.
The Bruins brought in three tight ends on the second down and handed off to receiver Michael Ezeike, who was brought down for a two-yard loss while trying to run outside. Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson was then brought down for a five-yard loss on third down, bringing in Molson.
Thompson-Robinson completed a nice 46-yard pass to tight end Caleb Wilson on the drive and has completed all eight of his passes so far for 92 yards. But he appeared to have some miscommunication, twice trying to hand off to no one.
