Pasadena, CA (Sports Network) - Jim Mora took over UCLA's sputtering football program last season and made it relevant again. And with key pieces returning, expectations in Pasadena are high.
The Bruins got off to a soaring start.
Brett Hundley, one of those key returning pieces, threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more scores in No. 21 UCLA's 58-20 thumping of Nevada.
The Bruins scored 41 points in the second half to turn the game into a laugher.
Hundley, whose 4,095 yards of total offense last year as a freshman broke Cade McNown's single-season school record, was 22-of-33 and added 61 yards on the ground for the Bruins, who won the Pac-12 South title last year, but fell to Stanford, 27-24, in the conference's title game.
Cody Fajardo ran for 106 yards and two scores, while going 19-of-32 through the air for 164 yards for the Wolf Pack, who were unable to win in head coach Brian Polian's debut.
