UCLA quick look

Baylor will meet UCLA in the Holiday Bowl on December 27th. Here's a quick look at the stat leaders for UCLA.

Quarterback

Brett Hundley was offered by Baylor and he has done a great job guiding the Bruins with 673 rushing yards on 151 carries. He has lost 308 on the year from sacks for a net of 365 which ranks second on the team.

Hundley has been great through the air with a 68.2 completion percentage and 3411 yards and 26 touchdowns.

He is dangerous with both his feet and arm, much like Keith Price at Washington last year in the Alamo Bowl.

Running Back

Johnathan Franklin has carried the load this year after blowing up in the first game against Rice.

On the season Franklin has gained 1700 yards on 268 carries with 13 touchdowns. The 6.3 yard per carry is extremely impressive and Franklin can go the distance on any carry.

Franklin is also a weapon on pass routes with 319 yards on 32 catches with 2 touchdowns. He ranks third on the team in receptions and yards.

Wide Receiver

Shaquelle Evans is the leading receiver with 53 receptions for 795 yards and 2 touchdowns. The former Army All-American is a big and physical wide receiver that will cause problems.

Tight End

Joseph Fauria is a beast at tight end. He is the second leading receiver on the team with 41 receptions for 578 yards and 11 touchdowns.

When UCLA gets into the red zone, Fauria is Hundley's favorite target.

Defense

Eric Kendricks is leading the team in tackles with 137, which is 58 more than the number two tackler Tevin McDonald. Kendricks is an exceptionally aggressive inside linebacker in UCLA's 3-4 base package.

McDonald is the leading tackler amongst the defensive backs with 79.

Andrew Abbot plays deep safety and is tied with Sheldon Price for the team lead with 4 interceptions apiece.

Leading the team in tackles for loss with 20.5 and sacks 13.5 is Anthony Barr. Barr plays OLB at 6'4 235 and could enter the draft early this year.

The 3 defensive linemen are also prototypical NFL sized with two 6'4 275 defensive ends and a tree stump of a defensive tackle at 6'1 310.

UCLA is giving up 409 yards per game and just under 26 points per game.
