The Bruins took control on the very first series starting from the UCLA 25 and drove down to the Arizona 37 yard line using a mixture of short passes and runs. With two rushes totalling 10 yards, Johnathan Franklin was within 11 yards of Gaston Green's career 3,731 yards rushing. Franklin took the hand-off from Brett Hundley scampering through, around and past the Wildcat defenders on his way to the endzone becoming the new Bruins career rushing leader.

Here's his record breaking run:

P1190587 P1190589 P1190591 P1190592 P1190593 P1190594 P1190595

P1190596 P1190597 P1190598 P1190599 P1190602 P1190605 P1190608 P1190610 P1190615 P1190616

After the record breaking run, Coach Mora called a timeout to properly honor Franklin's achievement. Gaston Green's congratulations played on the video board while the Rose Bowl crowd gave a standing ovation. The electricity throughout the stadium was palpable early and Arizona never had a chance.

Franklin would go on to gain 162 yards on 24 carries for two touchdowns as the Bruins manhandled the Wildcats 66-10.

Here's to the mayor and his continued success as he puts an exclamation point on his UCLA career.
