*UCLA leads the all-time series with California, 48-27-1, and has won the last three meetings in the Rose Bowl.
*The Bruins have won five in a row to start the season. The last time UCLA opened the season with five-straight wins was in 2001, when it started 6-0 and climbed to No. 4 in the rankings.
*UCLA is now just one of nine undefeated teams in college football this season, along with Alabama, Virginia Tech, Penn State, USC, Texas Tech, Texas, Georgia and Florida State.
*UCLA's win snapped Cal's 12-game regular season winning streak, which had dated back to an Oct. 9, 2004 loss at USC.
*Maurice Drew returned a punt 81 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter, his longest punt return of his career and the third-longest punt return for a touchdown (18th-longest return for a touchdown overall) in school history. The punt return for a touchdown was Drew's third this season (also vs. San Diego State and Rice), tying the Pac-10 record held by Glyn Milburn, Stanford (1992), Beno Bryant, Washington (1990), Mark Lee, Washington (1979), Mark Williams (Washington State, 1969), Sam Brown, UCLA (1954) and Jim Sears, USC (1952). Drew has four punt returns for touchdowns in his career, which ties the Pac-10 record held by Glyn Milburn, Stanford (1990-92), Beno Bryant, Washington (1989-91) and Sam Brown, UCLA (1953-55).
*Drew also had a 69-yard punt return in the second quarter and has now recorded four punt returns of 60+ yards this season.
*Drew tied his own school record with five touchdowns and 30 points scored in the game. He had previously set those records in 2004 at Washington.
*Drew's five touchdowns moved him into fifth on UCLA's all-time touchdown list with 31, and his 30 points moved him into 12th place on the all-time scoring list 186.
*Drew rushed for 65 yards to move into 13th on UCLA's career rushing list with 1,965 yards.
*Spencer Havner had nine tackles, moving him into sixth on UCLA's all-time list for career tackles 346.
*Havner had three tackles for loss, moving him into a tie with Jamir Miller (1991-93) and Karl Morgan (1979-82) for eighth on UCLA's career list with 35.
*Kicker Justin Medlock had five PATs to move into 10th on UCLA's all-time scoring list with 197.
*Chris Markey's fumble on a first quarter kickoff return was UCLA's first lost fumble of the season.
*Joe Cowan's touchdown reception in the first quarter was his first of the season.
*Both teams gave up season-high point totals. Cal's previous opponent high this season was 20 by Illinois on Sept. 17, and UCLA's previous opponent high was 24 vs. Oklahoma, also on Sept. 17.
*UCLA had 395 yards of total offense, the most allowed by Cal's defense this season.
*Cal produced a pair of 100-yard rushers in Marshawn Lynch (22-135) and Justin Forsett (10-153). This is the first time Cal has had two 100-yard rushers in the same game since the Cal-Stanford game on Nov. 20, 2004 when Lynch ran nine times for 122 yards and J.J. Arrington ran 27 times for169 yards.
*Tonight's attendance was 84,811, marking UCLA's largest non-USC crowd since 2000 when 88,804 fans attended the UCLA-Michigan game at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 16 (23-20 UCLA victory).
