UCLA's Myles Jack saves the day for Bruins with late interception
UCLA fans should be "jacked-up" about the Bruins' linebacker Myles Jack. Just a true freshman, Jack has quickly made a name for himself by making big plays on defense for the Bruins. None was bigger than his interception of Utah quarterback Travis Wilson in the waning seconds Thursday night to preserve No. 12 UCLA's 34-27 victory over the Utes.
Wilson nearly led a heroic comeback after the Utes' Sean Fitzgerald recovered an onside kick with two minutes remaining. However, Jack ended all hope for Utah, picking off Wilson for the sixth time on the night. Jack then showed the maturity of an upperclassman choosing to slide down in bounds so that the Bruins could then take a knee and run out the clock. Check it out below:
One thing is clear: Jack should be haunting opposing teams for years to come before he hits the road...Jack.
