Bruins RB Johnathan Franklin Breaks School Rushing Record
Saturday night in Pasadena, UCLA Bruins defeated the Arizona Wildcats 66-10. But the main story came from UCLA's running back Johnathan Franklin, who broke the school rushing record.
Franklin, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound senior from Los Angeles, entered the game he needed 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 put on pause briefly as Franklin was congratulated by his teammates in the end zone following his record-breaking run which finished off a nine-play, 75-yard drive following the opening kickoff.
UCLA is looking good and is now the front runner in the PAC 12 south with three regular season games on their schedule that includes meetings with USC and Stanford.
