Pac-12 Championship Game: Johnathan Franklin could set several UCLA records Friday

Jeff Gross

Johnathan Franklin could leave his name all over the UCLA record book on Friday.

UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin has two games left in his college career, and he is poised to leave his mark for years to come. Franklin has had a stellar senior season, and could set four different career or single-season UCLA records in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Friday.

Franklin is almost certain to set the Bruins' career all-purpose yardage record, as he needs just 18 yards to surpass Maurice Jones-Drew's total of 4,668. The back can also set both the single-season rushing and all-purpose marks. He needs 65 yards on the ground to overtake Karim Abdul-Jabbar in rushing, and 71 yards to top Terrence Austin in all-purpose yardage.

With a 100-yard rushing game against Stanford, Franklin can also set the school record for most games over the century mark in a season.

The Cardinal will make it difficult for Franklin, as they have one of the best front sevens in the country. If he can break all of these records, that would certainly bode well for UCLA's championship chances.
