1 - UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin's national ranking in yards/game with 215.5/game and all purpose yards with 249.5/game
1 - Pass completed by Nebraska in the fourth quarter at UCLA. Unfortunately, it was to the other team. It happened with 3:07 left in the game.
1 - UCLA's ranking in teams with national titles in all sports. 108 national titles total, including 19 in men's volleyball, 11 in men's basketball and a combined 15 in men and women's water polo. How many in football you ask? Why, zero. So FIVE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS you can still feel better than UCLA (for now, anyway).
2 - Number of games UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley had started, including the game against Nebraska.
5.77 - yards per pass attempt versus UCLA. Remember this, it's important later on.

7 - Arkansas State's national ranking in total offense with 574.5 yards per game
7.0 - Braylon Heard's yards per carry average against UCLA
7.2 - Husker offense yards per carry average against UCLA
7.4 - Ameer Abdullah's yards per carry average against UCLA. YOU THINK MAYBE YOU GOT THE POINT NOW?

15 - Arkansas State quarterback Ryan Aplin's national ranking in passing at 303 yards per game
16 - Nebraska's national ranking in total offense. Also Nebraska's national ranking in rush offense. OH WHERE IS THE RANKING FOR PASSING OFFENSE YOU SAY? HAVE SOME PATIENCE, DAMMIT.
22 - Nebraska's national ranking in sacks with six
23 - third down conversions - nationally. The Huskers are 50% - 13-for-26

56 - Number of rushing attempts UCLA had against Nebraska for 344 yards, a 6.14 yard per carry average.
66.2 - Taylor Martinez' current completion percentage.
67 - number of plays Nebraska ran against UCLA. That up tempo offense is designed to let you run more plays, but when you go three-and-out and don't run no clock, the other team gets to roll up yardage like nobody's business.
69 - number of plays the UCLA Bruins ran versus Rice
94 - plays the UCLA Bruins ran versus Nebraska.

119 - Nebraska's national ranking in rushing defense, giving up 264.50 yards per game.
192 - times I called Tim Beck an idiot for not running the ball more, not slowing the game down, not lining up in a heavier set, not using Mike Marrow or Imani Cross at all, and putting his offense in a position to fail (CALL A READ PLAY IN YOUR OWN END ZONE AGAINST A WILDLY AGGRESSIVE DEFENSE) when they need to win the game because the defense was awful. Wait. Maybe that was the number of times I called him a dumbass. Idiot/dumbass - is there a difference?
192 - ounces of beer I drank Saturday night.
