Bruins wallop Buffaloes, 44-20, becoming post-season Bowl-eligible

The Colorado Buffaloes must have thought Saturday was their day, putting up 10 unanswered points through the first part of the second quarter.

Unfortunately for the Buffaloes, Saturday was their day to eat the Bruins’ dust.

Although the Buffaloes added another 10 points during the second quarter with the Bruins managing only a touchdown, extra point, and field goal before the halftime break, those were all the points they would earn.

The second half belonged to the Bruins, who added 20 points in the third quarter and another 14 points in the fourth quarter.

UCLA QB Dorian Thomposon-Robinson completed 18 passes for 257 yards, with one interception.

The Bruins dominated in yardage: 257 yards passing and 245 rushing for a total of 502 total yards. The Buffaloes, in contrast, threw for 166 yards and ran for 193 yards for a total gain of 359 yards.

By winning the game, the Bruins became eligible to play in a post-season Bowl game.

The most important game of the season is this coming Saturday: UCLA vs. USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. (USC’s game against Cal Berkeley was rescheduled to December 4 due to COVID.)
