Arizona finds the end zone before halftime against UCLA on trick play

Oct 9, 2021, 9:40 PM | Updated: 10:54 pm

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.

It helped keep Arizona within striking distance of the Bruins through two quarters, cutting the Bruins lead to 14-13 as the team headed to the locker room.

The Wildcats are looking for their first win since Oct. 5, 2019 when they beat Colorado, 35-30.

Arizona is also looking for the first win of the Jedd Fisch era after losing its first four games to start the season.

The Bruins pulled away in the second half for a 34-16 win.
