News and Notes - UCLA/WSU

Thanks to Ucla's Sports Information Department, some news 'n notes for UCLA v WSU.

UCLA leads Washington State 38-18-1 in a series which dates back to 1928. The Bruins own an 8-5 advantage in games played in the Rose Bowl, but WSU has won three (2006, 2004, 2002) of the last five contests held in Pasadena. UCLA has won the last three games played in the series, but WSU owns a 6-4 edge over the last 10 meetings.

In last year's matchup, the teams were tied at 28 heading into the final quarter of play in the Rose Bowl. Richard Brehaut, who started the game, ran it in from one-yard out to put the Bruins ahead to stay with 10:08 remaining. Derrick Coleman, who totaled 185 yards rushing for the day, registered his third touchdown of the game on a four-yard run to make the final score UCLA, 42-28.

Johnathan Franklin also had a big game with a career-best 216 yards rushing, his third straight 100-yard plus effort of the 2010 season. The Bruin total of 437 rushing yards was the most by the team since 1979.
