It was almost a double embarrassment for UCLA on Saturday.
The Bruins needed a late field goal to escape Sun Belt foe South Alabama, 32-31.
Bringing the Jaguars to the Rose Bowl as an opponent didn’t entice a crowd.
Former UCLA quarterback and current ESPN broadcaster Troy Aikman has had it with the Bruins trying to call a 100,000-seat stadium home.
And he thinks an on-campus stadium that holds about one-third of what the storied Pasadena venue does would be a better option … possibly.
This is an embarrassment but we couldn’t fill the Rose Bowl in 1988 when we were the #1 team in the country. Anyone else at UCLA think it’s time for an on-campus 30,000 seat stadium? Of course, if we can’t play better than we did today, it would be half-empty too. pic.twitter.com/jteVU8XV76
