UCLA running back DeShaun Foster finished the game with 117 yards rushing on 24 rushes to record the 12th 100-yard game of his career and the fifth in six games this year. Foster now ranks tied for fifth with Wendell Tyler on the all-time school list for most career 100-yard games.

Paus' 273 passing yards were a season-high.
Devon Reese's touchdown off a blocked punt by Marcus Reese (no relation) was UCLA's second in as many games. This marks the first time in available records (since 1957) that UCLA has scored on two blocked punts in the same season, much less in back-to-back games.
