UCLA simply could not be stopped in the first quarter Saturday against NC Central.

Over the game’s first 15 minutes, UCLA put up 35 points and averaged 21.5 yards per play. On the other side of the football, the Bruin defense forced one takeaway and held the Eagles to just 51 yards on 21 total plays (2.4 per). UCLA scored touchdowns on each of its first two offensive snaps of the game, got a takeaway on NC Central’s third offensive snap of the game, and that set the table for what the rest of the frame was going to look like.

Quarterback Dante Moore threw two touchdowns β€” one of them a ridiculous laser beam for 30 yards. Backup quarterback Collin Schlee had a 57-yard rushing score that was UCLA’s third one-play touchdown drive of the quarter.

Edge rusher Laiatu Latu had an interception. Edge Gabriel Murphy had two tackles for loss.

Everything worked.

Here are the highlights:
