UCLA scored its winning touchdown following an interception of a pass. UCLA's 6-foot-5-inch end, Mel Profit, deflected the ball into the hands of Tackle Joe Bauwens, who lumbered 15 yards to the SC 32. UCLA marched in from there, then made the lead hold.
As soon as the game ended, a UCLA cheerleader covered Coach Barnes with kisses and pinned a rose on his lapel. "I wouldn't have taken this rose before the game," Barnes said, "but I'm mighty proud to wear it now."
Ohio State has beaten UCLA once this season, 13-3, but it was a little victory and it did not satisfy Woody Hayes. In the Rose Bowl he may rip that rose right off Billy Barnes's lapel.
