Against Arizona State: The Trojan pass rush forced five sacks for 56 yards and held Taylor Kelly to 46 yards rushing, a net of -9 which was by far his worst showing of the season on the ground.

What that means for UCLA: Statistically, Brett Hundley and Taylor Kelly are very similar quarterbacks with comparable numbers. Throwing the ball, Hundley stands one spot ahead of Kelly in just about every category in the Pac-12. Among quarterbacks running the ball, Kelly stands a single spot ahead of Hundley in just about every category.

The fact that USC was able to shut down Kelly bodes well for their ability to handle Hundley. The Trojan defensive line and linebackers did a particularly good job containing Kelly as he attempted to scramble to the outside and were able to use their speed to neutralize his running ability. They must do the same to Hundley.
