Medlock's field goal ties for the fourth-longest field goal in school history (school record is 56 yards by Chris Sailer, 1997 vs. Oregon).
Ten redshirt freshmen (Dennis Keyes, Chris Horton, Michael Pitre, Bruce Davis, Aaron Whittington, Troy Brown, Noah Sutherland, Nikola Dragovic, William Snead and Olukayode Oredugba) and nine true freshmen (Fred Holmes, Brian Abraham, Chris Joseph, Shannon Tevaga, Rodney Van, Brandon Braezell, Michael Norris, Kenneth Lombard and Brigham Harwell) played for UCLA in the first half.
Oklahoma State tailback Vernand Morency has rushed for 200+ yards in three of his last four games (269 vs. Kansas, 227 vs. Baylor).
Morency's total of 261 yards rushing is the third-best rushing total ever against the Bruins and the most against UCLA since Miami's Edgerrin James rushed for a school opponent record 299 yards in 1999.
