Hundley knocked out, Bruins unable to mount comeback
The Bruins took the field against Stanford this week, in their last regular season game of the 2013 season. At 6-5, a win would be necessary to assure a bowl bid. Little did they know that Anthony Wilkerson would have a career day, in route to breaking a school record.
The first half had Stanford score all of the first three touchdowns. HB Anthony Wilkerson would run it in from 22 yards and 15 yards out respectively, and helped lead his team into the redzone when Brett Nottingham would hit Jemari Roberts from the 12 yard line, Stanford 21-0. With 0:05 remaining in the quarter, UCLA would finally get on the scoreboard with a Jordon James run, 21-7 Stanford.
On the next Stanford possession, things were looking brighter for the Bruins, as a Nottingham fumble would have Erick Zumwalt pick it up, and take it back 47 yards for a touchdown to put the Bruins within one score. Stanford wouldn't make that mistake twice, as it stood to be their only turnover of the game. Anthony Wilkerson would score from 15 yards out again, for his third touchdown, and to put the Cardinals in front 28-14. UCLA would kick a field goal with 2 minutes remaining, and unable to keep the Cardinals off the scoreboard for the rest of the first half, would give up a 28 yard touchdown pass to Sam Knapp, Bruins down at the half 35-14.
UCLA's defense would clamp down in the third quarter, not allowing a point, but after Hundley stayed in the lockerroom due to a concussion, TJ Millweard would charge his team down the field successfully once, hitting Shaquelle Evans from 38 yards out after the safety tipped the ball into the receivers hands. 35-24 Stanford.
Holding Stanford to a field goal early in the fourth quarter had UCLA in a good position, down 38-24 with 5:30 remaining. Shaquelle Evans would catch his second touchdown of the day when TJ Millweard would hit him on the left side of the field, Evans outrunning a quick Stanford secondary. 38-31 Stanford. The Cardinals and Brett Nottingham would score nearly immediately, Jemari Roberts on the receiving end again, for 69 yards and a touchdown, again putting the lead above one score for the Bruins. Devin Fuller would return the next kickoff for a touchdown, on an electrifying run, to bring it within 7 points and 3:54 remaining, 45-38. The Bruins defense would not be up to the task though, allowing a long clock killing drive by Stanford, capped off with another Anthony Wilkerson touchdown run, ending the game 52-38.
Final Score :
UCLA 38 - 52 Stanford
Player of the Game :
Stanford HB Anthony Wilkerson - 27 attempts, 242 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns
Carolina Clinches CCG Brith With Tight Win UNC 27 MIAMI 24
Despite 3 missed field goals, UNC hung on to a 27-24 victory over a tough Miami team. After jumping out to a commanding 14-0 lead early, Miami answered with 16 straight points (2 touchdowns and a safety) to hit the half up 16-14. The 2nd half saw a more poised UNC team, as TJ Thorpe continued his dominance over the Canes, snagging 6 balls for 150 yards as UNC got the late game win.
The UNC defense was impressive, picking off Williams twice and allowing LE Tim Jackson to get his NCAA record 24.5th sack. GG Bucs, I'm sure my fortune is bound to run out.
