PASADENA, California (Ticker) -- Tyler Ebell ran for 160 yards and fellow freshman Matt Moore threw a touchdown pass in his first collegiate start as UCLA rallied for a 28-18 Pac-10 Conference victory over Stanford.
Ebell went over 100 yards for the fourth straight game and scored the go-ahead touchdown for the Bruins (5-3, 2-2 Pac-10), who bounced back after spotting the Cardinal an early 15-0 lead.
An 18-yard TD run by Ebell, who carried a school freshman-record 39 times, put the Bruins ahead to stay at 22-18 with 12:22 left.
Nate Fiske added field goals of 36, 22, 19, 23 and 44 yards for UCLA.
Moore became the first true freshman to start for the Bruins since Cade McNown in 1995, a move necessitated after Cory Paus suffered an ankle injury and backup Drew Olson separated his shoulder.
Moore completed just 7-of-19 passes for 142 yards. He threw a 22-yard TD pass to Mike Seidman in the second quarter to cut Stanford's lead to 15-10.
Kyle Matter had a rough game for Stanford (2-5, 1-3), completing just 10-of-22 passes for 75 yards and absorbing six sacks.
The Cardinal's Kerry Carter carried 23 times for 84 yards and scored on a one-yard run in the first quarter. Defensive end Julian Jenkins recovered a fumble in the end zone to make it 15-0.
