Looking at full-game stats for this one doesn't feel quite right considering the margins of the first (UCLA 31, KSU 6) and second (KSU 29, UCLA 9) halves. UCLA basically won because the Bruins' big half was bigger, but dialing in a bit, KSU's pass protection was lacking (as was the Wildcats' ability to do anything positive on passing downs), and UCLA's big plays were bigger.
Or, to put it another way, UCLA had Paul Perkins (20 carries, 194 yards) and Deon Hollins (three sacks, two hurries), and KSU did not.
