UCLA vs. Stanford score: Johnathan Franklin contained, Bruins enter halftime down 21-10

Andrew Fielding-US PRESSWIRE

Bruins star running back Johnathan Franklin was held in check by Stanford in the first half as UCLA enters halftime down 21-10.

Star running back Johnathan Franklin and the No. 17 UCLA Bruins offense was held in check for the most part, but the team was able to put points on the board to end the half. However, the No. 8 Stanford Cardinal remain in front, 21-10, after one half of play at the Rose Bowl.

The two teams traded scores to begin the game, as each received big-play passing touchdowns from their respective quarterbacks in Stanford's Kevin Hogan and UCLA's Brett Hundley.

However, the scoring exchanges ended there, as Stanford answered with two touchdowns in the second quarter, including a 49 yard rushing touchdown from Stanford's star running back Stepfan Taylor.

Meanwhile, Franklin has been largely bottled up by Stanford's swarming defense up front, as he has managed to gain just 42 yards on 12 carries in the first half.

Fortunately for the Bruins, they were able to get points on the board to head into halftime with, thanks to a 48-yard field goal from kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn, which should certainly be a confidence-booster.
