Stanford 27, UCLA 24: Extra Notes

— 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.

  • This one hurts. Ouch. Big difference between Rose and
    Alamo or Holiday

    This one hurts for sure, but should tell us how far we’ve come in under one year. Nothing takes away the disappointment of being that close to the Rose Bowl, but we’re now playing with the best teams in the Pac 12 in the most important and meaningful games – and playing well. Couldn’t be more proud of our Bruins and how they represented us this season and looking forward to the future.

    UCLA killed itself with its penalties. UCLA’s penalties handed Stanford its last 10 points.

    UCLA killed itself with mistakes. The penalties were the worse in this game. The interception was really bad.

    As the most penalized college football team in the nation, the UCLA players should be ashamed.

    Jim Mora needs to work next year on instilling more mental discipline on the players so they don’t give away games like they did today.

    I already bought my Alamo Bowl tickets.

    • jameskatt

      I sold them. Unfortunately we got the Holiday Bowl in San Diego instead of the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas. The Holiday Bowl tickets are sure cheaper than the Alamo Bowl tickets. I was looking forward to San Antonio, but Oregon State got it instead, finishing above UCLA in the last BCS standings.

    How do these single-season records compare when divided by the number of games in a season? We have a 13 game season this year, which makes it a somewhat unfair comparison. Assuming the former records were 12 game seasons, here’s what they are:

    Cade’s single-season total offense: 304.3 total off. yards / game
    Hundley: 290.5

    Terrence Austin’s single-season all-purpose yards: 156.5 all-purp. yards / game

    1998 single-season offensive yards: 487.3 yards / game
    2012: 474.5

    1988 First downs: 24.3 first downs / game
    2012: 24.2

    Yes, the numbers are bigger, but when you adjust them for inflation of an extra game, I’m not convinced they mean as much.

    That said, Hundley’s a Freshman. Here’s to 3 more great years (and us finding a new J. Franklin).

    Hundley needs to learn to throw the football away rather than losing yards by being sacked.
