          === Franklin sets school record as UCLA crushes Arizona ===
 
 Pasadena,  CA  (Sports Network)  -  Johnathan  Franklin became  UCLA's  career
 rushing  leader Saturday  night, as  the 25th-ranked  Bruins cruised  past the
 24th-ranked Arizona Wildcats, 66-10.
 
 Franklin  came into  the game needing just  21 yards to pass Gaston Green, who
 gained  3,731 yards  from 1984-87. Franklin became the school's rushing leader
 with  a  37-yard touchdown run  on his  third carry of  the game. He ended the
 night with 24 carries for 162 yards and two touchdowns.
 
 "It's a great feeling. All praises to my teammates," Franklin said. "They have
 pushed  me every day  -- the linemen blocking for me and the receivers working
 down field. All those guys open up the big holes, and I just run through them.
 I  was  just thinking  about doing  whatever I can  to help  my team win. That
 helped contribute to the team."
 
 Brett Hundley completed 23-of-28 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns for
 the Bruins (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12), who have won three in a row. He also carried the
 ball 10 times for 16 yards and a score.
 
 Joseph  Fauria  caught five passes  for 81 yards  and two touchdowns for UCLA,
 which sits atop the Pac-12's South Division.
 
 Matt  Scott connected  on 15-of-25 passes for 124 yards for the Wildcats (5-4,
 2-4),  who had  a brief two-game winning streak snapped. Ka'Deem Carey carried
 the ball 16 times for 54 yards and a score.
 
 "I'm  embarrassed by how  we played, and it starts with me as the head coach,"
 Arizona  coach Rich  Rodriguez said. "I thought  we were ready to play, but we
 weren't of course and it starts with me and the staff."
 
 Franklin's  37-yard  TD run on  the ninth play of  the game got UCLA's offense
 going.
 
 Arizona  lost  nine yards on  its first possession  that ended with an 18-yard
 punt. Hundley then capped a 7-play, 34-yard drive with a 6-yard rushing TD.
 
 After  a three-and-out by the Wildcats, the Bruins put together a 14-play, 85-
 yard  scoring  drive. On 3rd-and-1 from  the Arizona 11, Devin Fuller caught a
 pass  for one yard. A face mask penalty on the Wildcats gave UCLA a first down
 at  the  five. A pair of  false start penalties  set the Bruins back some, but
 Jordan Payton caught a 17-yard TD pass to make it 21-0.
 
 UCLA  was  forced to  punt the ball  early in the  second quarter, but Richard
 Morrison  fumbled the  ball  on the  return. The  Bruins  recovered and  Jerry
 Johnson  hauled  in a 46-yard pass  a few plays later. Damien Thigpen followed
 with a 1-yard TD run.
 
 Arizona  finally got  on the board when  John Bonano made a 28-yard field goal
 with 6:47 left in the half.
 
 Franklin's  2-yard TD  run and Fauria's 1-yard touchdown catch made it 42-3 at
 the break.
 
 Ka'imi  Fairbairn's  25-yard field goal  early in the  third made it 45-3. But
 Carey responded with a 2-yard TD run on Arizona's ensuing possession.
 
 Fauria's 28-yard TD catch with 5:21 left made it a 52-10 contest.
 
 Steven Manfro and Melvin Emesibe each ran for a score in the fourth period.
 
 
                                   Game Notes
