UCLA has finished off an impressive season-opening win over Nevada, 58-20, at the Rose Bowl Saturday night.
The Bruins broke open a close game with two quick touchdowns early in the third quarter and were all but unstoppable after that.
Quarterback Brett Hundley completed 22 of 33 passes -- to 10 different receivers -- for 274 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for two touchdowns, gaining 61 yards in eight carries.
Jordon James led the rushing attack with 155 yards and a touchdown in 21 carries. Shaquelle Evans had six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown and gained 52 yards on two punt returns.
Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo, a junior from Anaheim Servite High, kept the Wolf Pack in the game for a while with a tough and athletic performance.
He completed 19 of 32 passes for 164 yards and ran 22 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns.

New quarterback, a third-team running back, couple of new linemen ... and the beat goes on.
UCLA cannot be stopped. At least not by Nevada.
Malcolm Jones scored from one yard out -- his second rushing touchdown in a little more than two minutes.
The 33-yard drive was set up by a 33-yard punt return by Shaquelle Evans.
Backup quarterback Jerry Neuheisel connected with Logan Sweet on a 21-yard pass that set up Jones' scoring run.
Jerry Neuheisel now into the game at quarterback for UCLA.

Malcolm Jones has come all the way back.
The former Gatorade national high school player of the year left UCLA's program before last season; asked to come back as a non-scholarship player before this season; and earned a scholarship with his work during spring and summer training camps.
Now he's made the end zone.
