Jim Mora wanted to get off to a new — a better — start at UCLA in 2012. So he named redshirt freshman Brett Hundley the starting quarterback over the veteran, but oft-injured, pair of Kevin Prince and Richard Brehaut.
So far, looks like Mora’s one for one.
On his first snap as a college quarterback Hundley took it 72 yards to the house to put the Bruins up 6-0 on Rice (Ka’imi Fairbairn‘s extra point was blocked).
Hundley’s also 1-for-1 passing for 36 yards. So, two plays, 108 yards. Not bad.
There’s obviously a lot of game left, and the real story is how Hundley looks overall against a winnable opponent, but he’s off to a hell of a start.
