Well, the first night of college football in the Pac-12 was far from dull. Brett Hundley took his very first snap of his career for UCLA and went 72 yards for a touchdown in a Bruins win over Rice. Meanwhile, new Washington State head coach Mike Leach endured a sloppy and touchdown-less performance from his team in a loss 30-6 loss to a very good BYU team.
