Six interceptions doom Utes in 34-27 loss to UCLA (video)

Wilson throws six interceptions as U.’s comeback falls just short against Bruins.

With UCLA star running back Jordan James sidelined for the second half with an injury, UCLA was forced to rely on Hundley and backup running back Paul Perkins to orchestrate the win.

And that they did, leading the Bruins on a 13-play, 48-yard drive that culminated in a 47-yard field goal by Ka’imi Fairbairn to put the Bruins up 27-24 with 8:28 remaining.

In the drive, Perkins rushed five times for 36 of his 92 total yards to keep the chains and clock moving.

Hundley’s key plays came on third downs.

On a third-and-8, he threw a nine-yard pass to Devin Lucien for a first down on Utah’s 42-yard line.

Then, on third-and-21, he scrambled seven yards to get the Bruins in field goal range.

The third down conversions were reminiscent of the third down plays in which he burned the Utes last year in UCLA’s 21-14 win.

Whittingham said earlier in the week the Utes needed to improve their defense in such situations.

Unfortunately for the Utes, the offensive mistakes simply gave Hundley too many chances to beat them, and beat them he did.
