UCLA vs. Stanford: 10 Things We Learned in Bruins' Loss
Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

In a game that seemed to be dominated by Stanford, UCLA had chances to tie the game late, but the Bruins ultimately fell to the defending Pac-12 champions by a score of 24-10.

Despite completely dominating time of possession in the first half, the Cardinal only managed a field goal and took a 3-0 lead into halftime. Eventually, the Bruins defense wore down from being on the field for 75 plays, allowing the game-clinching touchdown with under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

It all began up front with Stanford's offensive line and the bruising running style of Tyler Gaffney, who had a career day, rushing for 171 yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries. The Cardinal defense also made life difficult for Heisman hopeful Brett Gardner, who threw two interceptions to safety Jordan Richards.

It was a nice bounce-back win for Stanford and a discouraging defeat for the formerly undefeated Bruins. Even still, not all hope is lost for UCLA. Here are 10 things we learned from its loss to David Shaw's bunch.
