Stanford 24, UCLA 10—Final
In a game that resembled more of a Big Ten clash, UCLA watched its undefeated reign come to an end, losing to Stanford by a score of 24-10.
After a defensive stalemate in the first half, the offenses erupted in the third quarter. However, the Cardinal dominated time of possession and ran the ball doing the Bruins' throat in the fourth quarter to close out the game.
Perhaps the biggest dark horse through the first seven weeks of the college football season, UCLA has now lost to Stanford three times in the last 12 months. Trying to throw his name in the Heisman Trophy race, Bruins quarterback Brett Hundley was befuddled by the Cardinal defense, specifically Jordan Richards, who had two interceptions on the afternoon.
Stanford tailback Tyler Gaffney had a career day, running for 166 yards and two touchdowns behind a bruising offensive line. In all, the Cardinal out-gained the Bruins by 153 yards and had ten more first downs. They still control their own destiny in the Pac-12 North.
