Troy Aikman: UCLA Attendance vs. Southern Alabama at Rose Bowl an 'Embarrassment'

The UCLA Bruins defeated the South Alabama Jaguars 32-31 on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, with a last-minute field goal, but even the excitement of a win couldn't hide the fact that there was a lack of fans in the stands.

Former UCLA and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman called the emptiness of Rose Bowl Stadium "embarrassing" and also took a shot at how poorly the team played on Saturday despite the win.

This is an embarrassment but we couldn’t fill the Rose Bowl in 1988 when we were the #1 team in the country.
