The Cardinal outlasted the Bruins for the second time in as many weeks and claimed its first Conference title since 1999. Stanford Quarterback Kevin Hogan completed 16-of-22 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown and added 47 yards and a touchdown on the ground en route to earning the game's most valuable player award. Stepfan Taylor, who established a new school career rushing record late in the second quarter, paced the Cardinal with 133 all-purpose yards (78 rushing, 55 receiving). UCLA started off strong, moving the ball consistently on its opening drive, which covered 85 yards in eight plays and culminated with a 51-yard touchdown scamper by Franklin. Stanford answered on its first possession, marching 69 yards in 11 plays and capping the drive with a one-yard touchUCLA 24 down run by Hogan that knotted the game at 7-7. UCLA took to the ground on its ensuing possession, stringing together runs STANFORD 27 of 48 and 19 yards to set up a five-yard touchdown run by quarterback Brett Hundley that put the Bruins back in front, 14-7. E arly in the second quarter, with the Bruins driving once again, Stanford safety Ed Reynolds intercepted a Hundley pass and returned it 80-yards to the UCLA one-yard line. Running back Stepfan Taylor found the endzone on the next play to tie the game, 14-14, and Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson rounded out the first-half scoring with a 37 yard field goal as time expired to give the Cardinal a 17-14 lead at the break. UCLA held Stanford on its opening possession of the second half and drew even with a 31-yard field goal by Ka'imi Fairbairn. After forcing another Stanford punt, Hundley led the Bruins on a 12-play, 80-yard drive that resulted in a 20-yard touchdown run by Franklin that gave UCLA a 24-17 advantage. The Cardinal countered on its next offensive series, driving 63-yards in 10 plays to set up a 26-yard touchdown strike from Hogan to wide receiver Drew Terrell on 3rd-and-15. After a holding penalty on the ensuing kickoff pinned UCLA at it's own eight-yard line, the Bruins marched into Stanford territory before being forced to punt. The Cardinal regained the lead with 6:49 remaining in the fourth quarter, as Williamson connected on a 36-yard field goal attempt. UCLA had a chance to tie the game in the final minute, but Fairbairn's 52-yard attempt came up just short, sealing the win for the Cardinal, 27-24. 2012-13 BOWL RESUL TS GILDAN NEW MEXICO BOWL Atten.
