Stephan Taylor rushes for 142 yards for Stanford
PASADENA, Calif. — Stepfan Taylor rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns, Kevin Hogan passed for 160 yards and another score, and No. 11 Stanford beat No. 15 UCLA 35-17 Saturday to win the Pacific-12 Conference North title and a rematch with the Bruins in the conference title game — a game Stanford will play host to next Friday.
The victory was the sixth consecutive for Stanford and its fourth in a row over UCLA (9-3, 6-3), which had a five-game winning streak snapped — its longest in seven years.
Taylor, a 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior who carried 20 times, didn’t play in the fourth quarter. He raised his career rushing total to 4,134 yards and will need 36 yards in the rematch with UCLA to break the Stanford career rushing record of 4,169 yards set by Darrin Nelson in 1977-81.
Hogan, a redshirt freshman making his third start at quarterback for Stanford, completed 15 of 22 passes no interceptions and was sacked twice.
