                      === No. 22 UCLA handles Houston ===
 
 Pasadena,  CA  (Sports Network) - Brett  Hundley threw two touchdown passes as
 22nd-ranked UCLA routed Houston, 37-6.
 
 Hundley  went  27-for-42 with  320 yards and  two interceptions while Jonathan
 Franklin ran for 110 yards on 25 carries for the Bruins (3-0), who have scored
 115 points in their first three games.
 
 "I  don't think  you should  ever be  satisfied until  the end  when you're  a
 champion,"  said UCLA coach Jim Mora. "I think our players feel like that.They
 are happy that they won, but I don't think they are satisfied with the overall
 performance of our team."
 
 David  Piland  was picked off five  times and finished the game 28-for-60 with
 249  yards  and  had a  rushing  touchdown  for  the  Cougars (0-3),  who  are
 struggling in 2012 after going 13-1 last season.
 
 "They  played  well which gave  our offense  trouble," said Houston coach Tony
 Levine.
 
 The second play of the game saw UCLA take the lead as Piland fumbled on a rush
 and Eric Kendricks returned it 23 yards for a score.
 
 Later  in the first  quarter, the Bruins went on a 15-play, 90-yard drive that
 saw  Hundley  cap the march with  a 7-yard scoring  toss to Datone Jones for a
 14-0 lead.
 
 Ka'imi  Fairbairn's  35-yard field goal 2  1/2 minutes into the second quarter
 accounted  for  the only score of  the frame as  the game went into break with
 UCLA leading 17-0.
 
 The  Bruins  started the  second half with  the ball and  needed just over two
 minutes  to get  into the end zone  when Hundley hit Jordon James on a 12-yard
 score.
 
 Fairbarin  hit field  goals of 23 and 33  yards later in the third to give the
 team a 30-0 lead heading into the final frame.
 
 Piland  finally got  his team on the  board with under five minutes to play in
 the  game with his  86-yard run. The team went for two points and failed while
 Steven  Manfro countered  a less than two  minutes later with a 14-yard run to
 account for the final score.
