A look at some numbers from the first half between the UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans.

SB Nation

Here is a quick look at some numbers from the first half at the Rose Bowl, which saw the UCLA Bruins take a 24-14 lead over the USC Trojans.

14: Points off turnovers for the Bruins, converting both USC miscues into touchdowns.

141: Passing yards for redshirt freshman Brett Hundley in the first half, looking by far like the most comfortable and experienced quarterback on the field. Hundley completed 16 of 19 passes in the half, with one touchdown pass and another touchdown run.

7-8: After throwing an interception on the first play from scrimmage, USC quarterback Matt Barkley completed just two of his first seven passes. But after that horrific start, Barkley recovered to complete seven of his last eight passes of the half, leading two touchdown drives to cut a big chunk out of UCLA's 24-point lead.

.625: UCLA convereted five of their eight third downs, and on one of the three times they were unsuccessful, the Bruins converted on fourth down.

63: Bruins all-time leading rusher Johnathan Franklin ran for 63 yards on 12 carries, including this 16-yard touchdown that gave UCLA a 24-0 lead.

2: Catches for Marqise Lee in the first half, giving him 100 on the season. But after 38 catches and 663 yards in his last three games, Lee's 30 yards in the first half barely registers. Lee also fumbled, one of two Trojans turnovers.
