Using a balanced attack led by QB Tom Ramsey, UCLA took a 10-0 lead in the second quarter. In addition, a hard hit by UCLA DB Don Rogers separated Michigan QB Steve Smith's shoulder and knocked him out of the game. But backup David Hall got the Wolverines on the board, making the halftime score 10-7. The key drive was early in the 3rd quarter when Tom Ramsey completed 7 straight passes, converted numerous 3rd downs, and led UCLA on a brilliant time consuming drive that was capped by Danny Andrews' 9-yard touchdown run to make the score 17-7. In the 4th quarter, UCLA got an interception inside the Michigan 20-yard line and scored again for an insurmountable 24-7 lead. Michigan got one last late touchdown for the final score of 24-14. UCLA played a nearly flawless game, with no turnovers and no penalties until taking an intentional delay of game penalty while running out the clock in the 4th quarter.[10][11]
