PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Tailback Johnathan Franklin became UCLA's career rushing leader Saturday night in the first quarter of the 25th-ranked Bruins' Pac-12 game against No. 24 Arizona.
Franklin, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound senior from Los Angeles, entered needing 21 yards to overtake Gaston Green, who gained 3,731 yards from 1984-87. Franklin moved into the top spot on the school's rushing list with a 37-yard touchdown run on his third carry of the game, raising his career rushing total to 3,758 yards.
The game was halted briefly as Franklin was congratulated by his teammates in the end zone following his record-breaking run which capped a nine-play, 75-yard drive following the opening kickoff.
Franklin came into the game as the country's seventh-leading rusher this season, having gained 1,042 yards on 156 carries for an average of 130.3 yards.
