Davis Mills carved up the Bruin defense in the first half and Stanford leads UCLA, 20-3. Mills completed 12 of 15 passes for 185 yards. Stanford scored on three of the four first half possessions.
Each Stanford scoring drive ended with a short run. Two of the Cardinal’s three touchdowns came from a one-yard plunge by Austin Jones who bookended a two-yard run by Isaiah Sanders.
Meanwhile, the Bruin offense, which is missing Demetric Felton tonight, has been unable to find the end zone. UCLA also had four first half possessions. Two of those possessions ended with a punt while the other two ended with field goal attempts. Nicholas Barr-Mira hit a 31-yard attempt in the first quarter, but missed a 37-yard attempt in the second quarter.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson was 8 for 12 and just 65 yards in the first half before leaving the game in the second quarter with what appeared to be a knee injury. He was replaced by Chase Griffin at the end of UCLA’s third drive of the half.
With Felton out, Brittain Brown has run the ball eight times for 53 yards to lead UCLA while DTR added 46 yards on nine carries.

I’m a watch till the bitter end. What a weird year.
Back to back sacks! Nice to see some intensity from the D to start the half.
Looks like Norwood is back from the bathroom
Looks like Chase Griffin gets the ball.
nice run, son
Seven runs and one pass I think on that drive.
Looks like Keegan Jones is next up
Looks like we decided to block.
Nice Gates pick!
I do think it's pretty impressive that we managed to play our entire season without having to cancel any games. Not many teams in the country can say that, and I think Oregon State is the only other Pac12 team to do so. It does sat a lot for the discipline of the players and staff.
First interception of furd this year. Who is this Gates kid?
Looks like Brown and Keegan gonna be a 1-2 punch next year
That sack was 100% on Griffin
We don't have a kicker who can make it from the 31?
Wow! You can't get any more wide open than that!
I prefer Chip’s play calling on 4th and 4 over 4th and 1.
Dammit. I keep forgetting I’m like a minute behind because of streaming.
I was gonna say our D finally showed up, but nvm....
What a pick! Osling played that perfectly!
Osling with a Pic!
What craziness is this where our defense is better in the second half?
Whatever happened at halftime clearly had a huge effect on the team
Brown destroying the Stanford DB for about 20 yards.
Gotta think someone got in the players faces at halftime.
Chase Griffin is on fire!
Griffin 4-4 2TDs!
Meanwhile, Bama handing Gators their asses!
What a turn of events! 21 unanswered points!
I think we can retire the idea that Kelly just phones it in and is merely collecting a paycheck.
Good D series.
Nice run back.
Man the run game is clicking this half
Wow nice execution on that swing pass. That was blocked beautifully.
D do your thing now!
Taking the FG was a no brainer. 7 point lead with 6 minutes left. Sure would be nice to finish this off.
Actually it might be kind of fun to have OT for the last game of this screwy year.
Who was that pass to?? Turrble...
Jay Shaw Pic 6!
Is Beth calling this from her house again?
