You nerds love numbers. After every game, we’ll try to remember to pick through the stats for that game and provide you with a few interesting numbers for that game.
- The number of rushing yards allowed by the UCLA defense, a testament to just how damn good that front seven is, with Damien Holmes and Anthony Barr being incredibly disruptive all game.
- The number of UCLA offensive players which received a pass from Brett Hundley. Of those 12, eight receivers caught the ball at least twice. There was also a rare Ricky Marvray appearance.
- The number of touchdowns UCLA QB Brett Hundley accounted for. Two of those touchdowns came through the air and the other two came on the ground.
- The last year that UCLA had a road win this big, margin-wise. That win was against Washington State in Pullman in late November. Since then, UCLA has only won one road win by double digits, which was against Texas in 2010.
- The new number of DT Ellis McCarthy, who received playing time — wait for it …. …… .. . . . . . . — at right guard on offense, making UCLA’s offensive line interesting to say the least.
- The total amount of all-purpose yards from Johnathan Franklin, who caught three balls for 78 yards and ran 111 yards off of just 15 carries, returning to his Heisman contender form.
- The number of offensive plays that UCLA ran against Colorado, a totally different tier above the 70 plays that UCLA ran against Oregon State last week, which bumps up the Bruins’ average to 83 plays per game, in stark contrast to the 64 players per game Rick Neuheisel averaged last year.
- The amount of yards that the Colorado offense put up through the air, which only confirms our concern with UCLA’s secondary, in which Sheldon Price and Aaron Hester both struggled mightily, albeit a lot less than against Oregon State.
- That’s us, bitches. GO BRUINS!!!
