In another defensive struggle, BYU fell to 1-2 on the season with a 17-14 loss at the hands of UCLA at LaVell Edwards Stadium on Saturday night.
The Cougars did enough on defense to hang around, but the offense struggled to find its footing most of the night during the loss in the home-opener.
The Bruins got on the board first on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Josh Rosen to Cameron Griffin two minutes into the second quarter. The play capped off an 80-yard drive that took 5:41 off the clock. Another key play on the drive came when Rosen connected with Darren Andrews for a 35-yard completion.
UCLA pushed the lead to 10 on a 24-yard field goal from J.J. Molson just two possessions later. Adarius Pickett gave the Bruins the short field to work with after intercepting a pass from Taysom Hill at the BYU 39-yard line.
