UCLA took a 1-2 record to Austin and shocked No. 7 Texas 34-12 in the United States Sports Academy’s College Football Game of the Week.
After a start of 0-2 that included a 35-0 loss to Stanford, the Bruins bounced back with a win over No. 23 Houston and then Saturday’s victory over the Longhorns. UCLA forced four first-half turnovers and ran over the nation’s No. 2 rushing defense with 264 yards on the ground.
The College Football Game of the Week, voted upon by a national panel of experts, is nominated for the College Football Game of the Year at the end of the regular season.
Daniel Moore, the American Sports Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) 2005 Sport Artist of the Year, is commissioned by the Academy each year to create a painting honoring the selected College Football Game of the Year. The Academy donates the painting to the winning university, along with $5,000 for its general scholarship fund.
