UW 10, UCLA 7, 3rd Qtr.

Very similar to the first quarter when UCLA featured a run-heavy attack. Both teams are trying to run it right down the other defense's throat.

The UW opened the second half with seven consecutive runs - the most of a string of rushing attempts since it had 10 in a row in a touchdown-scoring drive against Nebraska in September.

A 16-yard Chris Polk scamper, and runs of 17 and 13 yards by Jesse Callier led to Erik Folk's 27-yard field goal at the 11:06 mark.

It was the UW's first lead since an early 7-0 advantage against Arizona on Oct. 23 in Tucson.

On the Bruins' second drive, they ran six times in a row -but the UW escaped when Alameda Ta'amu dragged down Malcolm Jones for a 1-yard loss on third-and-2.

Polk has 122 rushing yards through three quarters.

UCLA had 39 total yards in the quarter.
