EL PASO, Texas -

Final score: 42-12.  ABC-7's Asher Wildman reports that VA Tech quarterback Logan Thomas was knocked unconscious on the hit that ended his Sun Bowl.  Watch highlights, color and analysis on ABC-7 at  6, ABC-7 at 9 on the CW and ABC-7 at 10.

-----------------

Brett Hundley to Shaquelle Evans 59-yard TD pass nails down the coffin lid.  42-12 UCLA.

-----------------

Hokie punt with just over 6 minutes left is the equivalent of a white flag.

------------------

Fans are heading for the exits en masse.

------------------

UCLA touchdown puts it just about out of reach.  Bruins lead 35-12 with less than eight minutes remaining.

------------------

UCLA's Jordan Zumwalt intercepts a Mark Leal pass.  A long, zigzagging return puts the Bruins in position to close it out from the Virginia Tech 10 yard line

-------------------

Hundley sacked to force a UCLA punt from just inside the end line.  Punter stepped on the end line for a safety.  28-12 UCLA with 9:30 remaining.  Hokies about to receive the ball.  It's now a two-possession game with a 16-point differential.

--------------------

A VA Tech punt with 11:27 pins UCLA deep on its own 5 yard line.  But time is running out on the Hokies.

--------------------

UCLA "pick six" interception return by Myles Jack gives UCLA a comfortable 28-10 lead with 13:22 remaining.

--------------------

UCLA drives the field and scores on a 5-yard shovel pass from Brett Hundley to Paul Perkins, to extend the Bruin lead to 21-10.

--------------------

The 4th quarter begins with UCLA leading 14-10, with the ball on the Virginia Tech 15 yard line.

--------------------

Tight pass coverage by Bruins prevents TD.  Michael Branthover, the fourth placekicker of the season for the Hokies, kicks the first field goal of his college career, to cut UCLA's lead to 14-10.  

--------------------

UCLA fumbles punt.  VA Tech long snapper Dahman McKinnon recovers ball on the UCLA 12 yard line.

--------------------

The second half is underway.  Virginia Tech starting quarterback Logan Thomas remains out of the game.  

---------------------

UCLA leads 14-7 at the half.  Hokie quarterback Logan Thomas to be evaluated for possible head injury at halftime.  He does not appear to be in obvious pain, and is having lighthearted conversations with teammates on the sideline.

----------------------

Hokie drive ends in a missed field goal.  Still 14-7.

-----------------------

Backup quarterback Mark Leal remains in the game on the Hokies' next series.  

-----------------------

86-yard touchdown run for UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley.  14-7 Bruins.

-----------------------

-----------------------

The first quarter has ended with the score tied 7-7.  

-----------------------

A long UCLA drive ended with no points on the board after a field goal attempt by Ka'imi Fairbairn sailed wide left.

-----------------------

Both teams have traded punts.  The score remains 7-7 in the last 5 minutes of the 1st Quarter.

-----------------------

The Hokies answer with a 1 yard touchdown run, after a long pass from Logan Thomas to Kalvin Cline.  7-7.

-----------------------

The Bruins have scored first and lead 7-0 after a touchdown run by QB Brett Hundley.

-----------------------

The 80th Hyundai Sun Bowl is underway.   UCLA is driving after taking the kickoff from Virginia Tech.   The Bruins are wearing ghastly black uniforms and helmets instead of their signature powder blue jerseys and gold helmets.
