UCLA Destroys Virginia Tech 42-12 In The 80th Hyundai Sun Bowl

The UCLA Bruins put on an offensive show at the 80th annual Sun Bowl by scoring 42 points on Virginia Tech and their fourth ranked defense.

47,912 fans witnessed a new Sun Bowl record as Bruins quarterback and future NFL draft pick Brett Hundley rushed for 172 yards on 10 carries and scored two touchdowns as well in what was a performance for the ages.  Hundley’s most impressive touchdown run came at the 9:17 mark of the second quarter when he rushed for an 86 yard score to give UCLA  the 14-7 lead.

Virginia Tech, who made only their second Sun Bowl appearance since 1947, received a tremendous blow when their quarterback Logan Thomas was knocked out of the game in the second quarter when he was leveled by Bruins ILB Jordan Zumwalt.  Prior to the hit, Thomas was the leading rusher for the Hokies with 49 yards on just 3 carries.  Virginia Tech was able to hang in there with UCLA until the half where the Bruins held a narrow 14-7 lead.

The Bruins dominated the remainder of the game as the Hokies and their back up quarterback Mark Leal committed three turnovers and went on to lose the contest 42-12.  UCLA QB Brett Hundley and LB Jordan Zumwalt were named the game’s co-MVP’s.  Following the game UCLA head coach Jim Mora Jr. spoke about his quarterback’s remarkable performance, he mentioned,
