Arizona finds the end zone before halftime against UCLA on trick play
Arizona took momentum into halftime against UCLA with a trick play touchdown with :37 seconds left from the 10-yard line.
A backward pass from quarterback Jordan McCloud to wide receiver Jamarye Joiner got the defense to commit to one side of the field.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Michael Wiley was able to slip free on the other side in the end zone where Joiner delivered a second pass to him for the touchdown.
Great trick play by Arizona to end the first half.
