Stanford 14, UCLA 6: Halftime reflections

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Stanford obviously isn't afraid of running right at UCLA, see 130 yards rushing in the first half.

But one wonders if the Cardinal might need more out of its passing game than two completions for 19 yards -- 18 of which came on a single pass from Tavita Pritchard that set up the Cardinal's second touchdown of the half.

On the Bruins side of things, it's not hard to see the problem: two turnovers from quarterback Kevin Craft.

First, Craft was intercepted on a second-and-9 pass from the Stanford 12-yard line, killing a great scoring opportunity.

Second, Craft fumbled on a sack from Tom Keiser on the Bruins 29, which set up Stanford's second TD.

But he bounced back strong, leading the Bruins on a 77-yard drive for a field goal as time expired in the first half.

Craft has previously demonstrated resiliency, recall his second-half brilliance against Tennessee after four first-half interceptions.

But at some point you'd think coach Rick Neuheisel and offensive coordinator Norm Chow would like to see four consistent quarters from him.
