The UCLA Bruins wanted to send quarterback Brett Hundley out in his final home game of his collegiate career. While Hundley still has games left, he’ll never play another game at the Rose Bowl, as he’s already committed to enter the 2015 NFL draft.
The Bruins lost 31-10 to the Stanford Cardinal for the seventh straight year. It is their longest active losing streak against one team in the Pac-12.
Also, with the loss, the Bruins were eliminated from winning the Pac-12 South. Now, the Arizona Wildcats will face Oregon next week in the Pac-12 Championship.
It is also Stanford’s first win against a Top 25 team this season. Previously, they were 0-5 coming into this game.
Jordan Williams made a 34-yard field goal at 10:40 in the fourth quarter to make it 31-10. Remound Wright scored on a two-yard run at 9:16 in the third, as the Cardinal improved the score to 28-10.
Cardinal junior quarterback Kevin Hogan threw two touchdowns in the second quarter. With 41 seconds left, he threw a 37-yard pass to Devon Cajuste.
Then, with 6:24 left in the quarter, he hit Michael Rector for a 22-yard touchdown. Both touchdowns made the score 21-10.
Bruins kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn hit a 42-yard field goal to make it 10-7.
Wright scored his first touchdown of the game on a 1-yard run with 6 minutes left in the first quarter.
In his final game. Handley gave the Bruins the early lead with a 15-yard touchdown to Thomas Duarte.
