The UCLA Bruins will take on the San Diego State Aztecs for a week 2 showdown. UCLA is looking to turn things around after a shaky performance to kick off their season against Cincinnati. The Bruins are expected to be a solid but not top-tier team in the Pac-12.
The Aztecs are expected to have a good season after going 7-6 in 2018. Their season ended in disappointing fashion with a 27-0 loss to Ohio in the Frisco Bowl.
San Diego State Aztecs
The San Diego State Aztecs beat the Weber State Wildcats 6-0 on Saturday night. It was not a contest for those who love offense. Two field goals by Aztecs kicker Matt Araiza were the difference in the contest. Aztecs quarterback Ryan Agnew struggled going for 108 passing yards on 16/30 completions.
The Aztecs ground attack was led by Juwan Washington who had a shaky performance. Washington had 55 yards on 22 carries. The running back should have a better showing against UCLA as he averaged 5 yards per carry last season. Jordan Byrd was a lone bright spot on offense for the Aztecs with 50 yards on five carries.
Dwayne Johnson Jr. had a big game on defense with 12 tackles, 1.5 being for a loss. The Aztecs gave up a total of only 154 total yards in the win. It was also their first shutout win since 2016 against Hawaii.
The UCLA Bruins started off the season with a 24-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats on Thursday night. Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson had a disappointing game with 156 passing yards, two touchdowns, and touchdowns. The signal-caller only completed 8/26 pass attempts and also fumbled the ball twice in the loss.
Demetric Felton led the ground game but he struggled rushing for 71 yards on 23 carries. Felton did his damage as a receiver as he had 91 yards and two touchdowns.
The last three drives for the Bruins ended in a fumble, an interception, and turnover on downs. UCLA allowed some big plays to Bearcats quarterback Desmond Ridder who had 242 yards and two touchdowns. The Bruins did a good job in containing Cincinnati’s ground game which rushed for 3.6 yards per carry.
Elijah Gates and Krys Barnes led the Bruins with 10 tackles apiece in the game.
