UCLA came within a few minutes of staging one of the best come-backs in school history. Thanks to a ‘never say die’ effort the Bruins rallied to fall short to Stanford 49-42 in front of 38,391 at the Rose Bowl.

Senior QB Wilton Speight completed 29 of 47 passes for a career high 466 yards.

Trailing 41-27 the bruins reeled off 15 straight points after a safety by Martin Andrus Jr. Darnay Holmes returned the kick-off 93 yards to bring the Bruins to within five 41-36.  

“We had our opportunities today,“ said Bruin head coach Chip Kelly. ” We just didn’t capitalize on them.”

Speight then led them on a 13 play 90 yard drive taking it in the end zone himself on a one yard run.

Just over a minute left Osirs St. Brown caught his only pass of the day, a 52 yard TD from K.J.Costello and that put the Cardinal 7-4,(5-3 PAC-12) ahead for good.

Costello finished the Day completing 23 of 37 for 344 yards and a career high five touchdowns. The win was the 11th in a row over UCLA.

Running back Joshua Kelley was held to 55 yards on the ground after having seven straight 100 yard games. Kelley finishes the season with 1,243 yards number 8 in the PAC-12.
