Texas Vs. UCLA Final Score: Mack Brown Owns Rose Bowl Once More

After winning two straight Rose Bowls earlier in the decade, the Texas Longhorns have again made Pasadena feel like home. The Horns downed the UCLA Bruins 49-20, retaliating for at least a portion of those three straight blowout losses at the hands of the mighty Bruins.

It was 21-0 before UCLA got on the scoreboard, and the Bruins wouldn't come within 15 points for the rest of the competition. The Horns coasted out the victory on the legs of Malcolm Brown and others, with Brown posting 114 of Texas' 240 rushing yards.

Both teams fiddled with their quarterback presentations, but only UT's rearrangement was by design. Case McCoy and David Ash carried out their ordained rotation, though they only combined to throw 18 times. Receiver Jaxon Shipley got to throw a five-yard touchdown pass at one point too. (Wow, Garrett Gilbert is WAY down the depth chart now.)

UCLA, however, had to excuse Kevin Prince after three quick interceptions, with Richard Brehaut faring somewhat better. At least he didn't turn the ball over.

Texas Vs. UCLA Halftime Score: Case McCoy, Horns Lead Big

The UCLA Bruins have won three straight games against the Texas Longhorns, dating back to 1998. The combined score in those games: 149-46. A resounding win by the Horns in the Rose Bowl wouldn't make up for all that, but UT fans would still be pretty happy about it. < --- analysis

So far, the Longhorns are on the right track, leading 28-10 at the half. The biggest box score so far has been UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince, who pitched three interceptions on seven attempts before giving way to Richard Brehaut.

The all-new Case McCoy-David Ash starting rotation has piled up 137 yards and two touchdowns on 16 attempts, most of that by McCoy. Ash has yet to express himself by breaking a run or two, but if Texas' defense can continue to haunt UCLA's passing game, he might not have to.
