— Kevin Hogan was named the game MVP. As usual, Stanford’s redshirt freshman didn’t throw for big numbers (16 of 22, 155 yards, 1 TD), but came through late. The Cardinal entered the fourth quarter down a touchdown, but Hogan found Drew Terrell for a 26-yard touchdown to tie the game. He also rushed for 47 yards and a score on Friday night.
“He’s very poised,” said UCLA head coach Jim Mora. “He’s careful with the ball. He makes good decisions when he’s on the move, when he’s outside of the pocket, and I think they did a nice job of using him as a runner tonight.”
— Brett Hundley passed Cade McNown’s single-season record for total offense, set in 1998 at 3,652. Hundley, who passed for 177 yards against the Cardinal and ran for 83, now has 3,776.
— Johnathan Franklin’s major milestones were breaking Maurice Jones-Drew’s career all-purpose yards record and Karim Abdul-Jabbar’s single-season rushing mark. He also cracked Terrence Austin’s single-season all-purpose mark of 1,878, set in 2008. Franklin has 2,024 after rushing for 194 and catching for 24.
— Before Friday, Stanford had allowed two rushing plays of over 40 yards (77 at Oregon, 61 at Washington). The Cardinal gave up two more in just the fourth quarter against UCLA, a 51-yarder to Johnathan Franklin and a 48-yarder to Brett Hundley.
- UCLA set a new program record for single-season offensive yards. The 1998 team had 5,847. This year’s squad has 6,169. The first-down record was broken too. These Bruins were already tied with the old mark (292, in 1988) entering the game. They now have 314.
