--The Bruins snapped a three-game losing streak to California and have won five of the last six meetings at The Rose Bowl.
--The 294 team rushing yards were the most since Oct. 2, 2010 against Washington State (437). It is the seventh time in the last two seasons that the Bruins have eclipsed 200 yards rushing.
--UCLA is a perfect 13-0 when holding its opponent under 20 points during Rick Neuheisel's tenure. The Bruins are 9-3 when rushing for at least 100 yards under Neuheisel and 10-3 when winning the turnover battle.
--Redshirt junior quarterback Kevin Prince ran for a career-best 163 yards. He had a season-best, 32-yard long rush midway through the second quarter. It marked the first time since 1976 (Jeff Dankworth vs. California) that a UCLA quarterback rushed for over 100 yards and the most for a Bruin QB since John Sciarra (178 vs. Tennessee in 1974).
--Redshirt freshman safety Tevin McDonald recorded his first three career interceptions, with one late in the second quarter and two early in the fourth. The last 3-INT game for a Bruin was by Rahim Moore (9/5/09 vs. San Diego State). It ties a school record and was accomplished for the fifth time (Craig Rutledge, 1986; Darryl Henley, 1986; Ron Carver, 1971). The three picks in one game by a freshman is a Pac-12 Conference record, which has been accomplished three other times.
--The four interceptions by the Bruins are the most since they had four on Oct. 11, 2003 at Arizona.
--Redshirt junior running back Johnathan Franklin moved into 12th place on UCLA's career rushing list and has 2,258 for his career.
--Senior running back Derrick Coleman ran for his team-leading seventh, eighth and ninth touchdowns, with one late in the second quarter and two in the fourth. He last had three touchdowns against Washington State on Oct. 2, 2010.
--Senior wide receiver Nelson Rosario moved into 12th place on UCLA's career receiving yards list and has 1,815 for his career. He also moved into a tie for 11th (Taylor Embree) in career receptions with 117.

--Saturday's loss marked the first time Cal lost to UCLA since 2007. UCLA holds a 50-32-1 in the all-time series that began in 1933.
--Keenan Allen finished the night with seven catches for 83 yards. Allen entered the game leading the nation in receiving yards per game (129.4 ypg). Allen moved up on Cal's single-season top-10 lists in two categories - receptions (67, 5th) and yards (989, 6th). He also extended his streak of consecutive games with a catch to 19, all his games at Cal.
--Marvin Jones extended his streak of games with at least one catch to 33 consecutive contests as his first catch came on the first play from the line of scrimmage. Jones is Cal's active career leader in receptions (135), receiving yards (2,034) and receiving touchdowns (13). The 135 receptions ranks just outside the top-10 all-time at Cal, while the 2,034 receiving yards are also just outside the top 10.
--Zach Maynard completed 14-of-29 passes for 199 yards and four interceptions. It was the first time this season that Maynard did not throw for at least 200 yards, completed at least 15 passes or tallied a touchdown either passing or rushing. UCLA's Tevin McDonald was on the receiving end of three of those four interceptions. The last time an opponent had two or more interceptions in a game against Cal was earlier this season against USC when Dion Bailey picked off Maynard twice. The last time Cal surrendered four interceptions was on Dec. 27, 2008, in the Emerald Bowl against Miami. Fla. Combined with Maynard's fumble, it was the second time this season that the Bears have allowed five turnovers in a game (USC). Maynard boasted a 39-yard run that was the second longest of his career (43 vs. Fresno State).

-- With his two extra points, Giorgio Tavecchio has 216 career points that ranks ninth all time at Cal. He is eight points away from Chuck Muncie (224). He has made 11 of 14 field goals this season after his lone try at UCLA was no good.
--Bryan Anger booted a season-high punt for the third consecutive game with 64-yard punt in the first quarter on the first of his five punts on the day. His previous season bests in order were a 62-yard vs. Utah on Oct. 22 and a 61-yarder against USC on Oct. 13. He also had three punts of 50 or more yards at UCLA and has 12 on the year. Anger also placed three punts inside the 20.
--D.J. Campbell had a career-high, and team-high, 11 tackles and recovered a fumble for the second straight game and the fourth time in his career on a muffed UCLA punt in the third quarter that led to C.J.
