Great play call there by UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone and good execution by the Bruins.

UCLA tackle Torian White was injured early in the drive. It appeared to be his right ankle and White was taken off the field on a cart.

The Bruins had to move freshman Caleb Benonoch to White's right tackle position but he did a good job on the Bruins' scoring drive.

Utah 14, UCLA 7 (end of first quarter)

Uh, this could be high scoring.

Travis Wilson now has thrown two touchdown passes after hitting Sean Fitzgerald on a six-yard pass with 58 seconds left in the first quarter.

Missed it by that much. UCLA Randall Goforth nearly stepped in front of the pass and returned it for a pick six.

Your move, UCLA.

It should be said here that has Utah gotten a big lift from co-coordinator Dennis Erickson, who came out of retirement to help young coach Brian Johnson with the offense.

Erickson last coached at Arizona State, but, of course, led Miami to two national titles and also coached at Oregon State, Idaho and Washington State. Erickson was also a head coach in the NFL with Seattle and San Francisco.

There is probably no bigger birth date gap for coordinators in any sport.

Erickson was born March 24, 1947.

Johnson was born Feb. 16, 1987.

UCLA 7, Utah 7 (midway through first quarter)

Well, that early lead did not last long. Utah answered by scoring on its first drive with a 54-yard pass play from Travis Wilson to Dres Anderson.

Name ring a bell?

Anderson is the son of former UCLA and L.A. Rams receiver Flipper Anderson.

Dad doesn't have to worry (probably) about his son exceeding his single-game NFL yardage record.

That's right, Flipper set the NFL record with 336 yards against the New Orleans Saints in 1989.

Blogger note: I was the Rams' beat writer at the time and saw Flipper set the record with this incredible feat in the Superdome.
