Washington Huskies defeat UCLA Bruins 24-7. After dueling three-and-outs, the Bruins capped a 13-play, 92-yard drive with a 31-yard touchdown run from Johnathan Franklin for a 7-0 lead.

And that was it for the Bruins highlights, thank you for coming! Do not pass go, and do not go to a bowl game.

It was bad enough that Richard Brehaut was particular ineffective going 5-for-17 for only 42 yards and two interceptions, but after being knocked out the game in the third quarter with a concussion everyone realized he was the best option for the Bruins.

Darius Bell was pulled after four series when he threw his own interception for a Huskies touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter going 0-for-3. Then came some kid named Clayton Tunney who went 1-for-8 with an interception. It was that kind of night.

At least the Bruins contained Huskies quarterback Jake Locker. He only threw 10-for-21 for 68 yards and an interception while only carrying the ball four times for nine yards and a touchdown. But they had no answer for running backs Chris Polk and Jesse Callier. Polk had the ball 27 times running for 141 yards and a touchdown while Callier only had nine touches but went a respectable 105 yards.

Indiana Pacers defeat LA Clippers 107-80. Talk about the revenge of the Dunleavy. And Mike Dunleavy, Jr. wasn’t even at the game because of the birth of his child! With Darren Collison also out with a bad ankle, that didn’t bother the Pacers any. After all they were playing a one-win team.

I’m trying to look at the positives of the game for the Clippers. They came out attacking getting an early six point lead. Despite horrible offense from both teams that led to a two-minute scoring drought late in the quarter, the Clippers came out with a three-point lead. And that was about it.

Eric Gordon in his homecoming led the Clips with 19 points while Blake Griffin was held to only 12 points. The Clips shot only 33% while allowing the Pacers to shoot just over 50%. The Pacers were led by Danny Granger with 22 points who has had a pretty good season in the early going.
