STANFORD — Tyler Gaffney ran for 171 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Stanford smothered Brett Hundley and ninth-ranked UCLA 24-10 on Saturday.
Kevin Hogan threw for 227 yards and a spectacular touchdown to Kodi Whitfield as the Cardinal (6-1, 4-1) regrouped again after losing at Utah last week. Stanford has not lost consecutive games since October 2009.
Stanford hurried Hundley all afternoon to slow down UCLA's up-tempo offense.
Hundley completed 24 of 39 passes for 192 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions to Jordan Richards — the second with a little more than 2 minutes remaining to seal Stanford's victory. UCLA (5-1, 2-1) has not started 6-0 since 2005.
The Cardinal came out on top again in a rematch of last season's Pac-12 title game and showed they're not bowing out of the conference race. Stanford has won six straight over UCLA, including three times in the last year, and 14 in a row against teams from California.
