The UCLA youth quarterback also scrambled his approach for 94 some-more yards and another score. Yawn.
See, Hundley’s been so consistently stellar that No. 25 UCLA roughly reaches a indicate where a group anticipates those kinds of ostentatious numbers any and each week.
“Our expectations of him are maybe a small unrealistic, off a charts,” UCLA manager Jim Mora said. “We only kind of take them for granted.”
Hundley will really have a courtesy of Colorado (2-5, 0-4 Pac-12) when a Bruins (5-2, 2-2) transport to Folsom Field on Saturday. The Buffaloes know all too good what Hundley can do if given a chance.
After all, Hundley threw for dual scores and ran for dual some-more in a 45-23 win over a Buffaloes final season.
“He’s only very, really explosive,” Colorado manager Mike MacIntyre said. “He creates it all go, there’s no doubt about that.”
Hundley is shutting in on a school’s career record for flitting TDs. He’s dual divided from restraining Cade McNown during 68.
For Colorado quarterback Sefo Liufau, it’s all about removing his certainty back. He took final weekend’s 56-28 detriment to USC unusually hard, observant he played one of his misfortune games. Liufau finished with 143 yards passing, dual touchdowns and dual interceptions before giving approach to backup Jordan Gehrke.
“It was only frustrating, though you’re going to have that sometimes,” Liufau said. “Not even a pros have a good diversion each week.”
MacIntyre appreciates that kind of caring from Liufau, that he takes waste to heart.
“I’m blissful he’s not a other approach where he’s blaming everybody else and observant this and that,” MacIntyre said. “Taking censure for it to know it … and going from there, we consider is good for all of us.”
Things to know when a Bruins transport to Folsom Field for a 100th homecoming diversion in Colorado history:

Now a receiver for a Bruins, Payton will gladly leave that shortcoming to someone else. Spruce has had utterly a deteriorate for a Buffaloes, heading a republic in catches (71) and TDs (11).
“He’s been vivid me for years,” Payton said. “He’s always been a unusual player.”
TRIBUTE: The Buffs will wear decals on their helmets with a initials “DQ” to respect David Quessenberry, who played for MacIntyre during San Jose State and was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in Jun while in stay with a Houston Texans.

Rios missed all of final deteriorate after constrictive a singular fungal infection that hospitalized him for some-more than dual months. He mislaid some-more than 50 pounds and was told by doctors he might not survive. But he recovered and returned to a margin this summer.
“I’m not going to distortion to you: It was one of those good moments that make college football so special,” Mora said. “It meant a lot to a lot of people.”
BOWL ASPIRATIONS: Colorado needs 4 wins in a final 5 games to turn play authorised for a initial time given 2007.
“That’s not something we speak about during any length,” MacIntyre said. “We know that if we put an volume of games together and keep winning games, afterwards we’ll be in a bowl.
“Of course, we wish to be in one, there’s no doubt about that. I’m not downplaying that, though that’s not something where we go out and say, `Hey, we need to win this one or we’re not going to a bowl.”‘
SEEING RED: The UCLA offense is 25 for 25 inside a red zone, with 18 touchdowns. That’s tied for a best commission in a republic this season.
