Final: Stanford 35, UCLA 0

This was a methodical whipping. Stanford just ground UCLA down before decisively prevailing 35-0.

UCLA's defense was game most of the night, but it wore down in the second half because the Bruins offense is simply lost.

The new "pistol" is firing blanks (I know, that's a bad one). Quarterback Kevin Prince, who's missed nearly every practice this season due to injury, only completed 6 of 12 passes for 39 yards before being yanked for Richard Brehaut at the start of the fourth. Prince threw an interception and his fumble was returned 21 yards for a TD.

Stanford wasn't great. Quarterback Andrew Luck only completed 11 of 24 passes (two TDs). His running -- 63 yards on 7 carries -- was better than his passing.

But the Cardinal didn't have to be great vs. a UCLA team that is 0-2 with an 0-4 start very possible.

Stanford should be better tested at home next week when Wake Forest comes to Palo Alto.

The Bruins play host to Houston, which may not have injured quarterback Case Keenum.
