UCLA shocks Washington State 67-63 after major comeback in Pac12 opener
PULLMAN, Wash. — It didn’t start out smooth, but Washington State piled 49 points on UCLA before things went south.
Quarterback Anthony Gordon threw an interception in the Cougs’ first drive of the game, which the Bruins turned into a 7-nothing lead after a 14-yard touchdown catch by Josh Kelly.
WSU responded immediately with a four yard touchdown pass from Gordon to Easop Winston Jr. A few drives later, the Cougs went up 14-10 with another 28-yard catch by Winston Jr. He ended up with three in the game.
Gordon threw another interception in the second quarter, but started heating up after that. Washington State’s defense got a few stops, and Gordon found Travell Harris, Tay Martin and Renard Bell to extend their lead over the Bruins to 42-17 by the third quarter.
Gordon threw a WSU record 9 touchdowns, but UCLA forced fumble after fumble from the Cougs, and piled on 60 points in the third and fourth quarters, they win 67-63.
