Houston Vs. UCLA 2012 Final Score: Cougars Can't Contain Bruins, Lose 37-6

The Houston Cougars made changes in the hopes that they would earn their first victory of the season. The only problem is that they ran into a red hot UCLA. Houston dropped to 0-3 after being run over by UCLA's offense, 37-6.

It was a bad night for Cougars' quarterback David Piland. He went 28-for-60 for 249 yards with zero touchdowns and five interceptions. The quarterback faired slightly better when running with the ball. He was second on the team in rushing with four carries on 71 yards with his longest carry being a team high 86 yards. Piland would score Houston's only touchdown.

While it may be difficult to find a bright spot, the Cougars were able to sack UCLA quarterback three times in the game for a total of 20 lost yards. UCLA could only get to David Piland once for a loss of two yards.

It will take even more introspection and changes to figure out how to correct this downward slide. The Cougars have a week off before welcome a struggling Rice Owls team to Reliant Stadium.
