PASADENA, Calif. • Redshirt freshman Brett Hundley passed for 320 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 22 UCLA's hard-hitting defense held high-scoring Houston in check Saturday night as the Bruins beat the Cougars 37-6.

Johnathan Franklin, the nation's leading rusher, gained 110 yards on 25 carries, Sheldon Price tied a school record with three of UCLA's five interceptions and Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked three field goals to help the unbeaten Bruins earn their third straight victory under first-year coach Jim Mora.

Hundley completed 27 of 42 passes with two interceptions. Franklin, a senior who averaged 215.5 yards in his team's first two games, moved into second place on UCLA's career rushing list with 3,210 yards. Gaston Green gained 3,731 yards in the 1980s. —
