Paus lifts UCLA over Cal

— California wasn't about to let DeShaun Foster run wild, as Washington did a week earlier.

Instead, it was Cory Paus who did the Golden Bears in.

Paus passed for a season-high 273 yards and three touchdowns in less than three quarters late Saturday night as No. 4 UCLA overcame a sluggish start to beat winless California 56-17.

Foster, who entered the game as the leading rusher in the country with a 162.6-yard average, gained 117 yards on 24 carries and caught two passes for 61 yards.

Held to 38 yards on 12 carries in the first half, the 6-foot-1, 215-pound senior scored on runs of 1 and 6 yards and a 34-yard pass from Paus.

Foster ran for a school-record 301 yards on 31 carries and scored four touchdowns in UCLA's 35-13 victory over Washington.

"You saw the way they were playing defense nine guys in the box," Paus said. "We're still going to run the ball. I'm just glad we were able to do some things we wanted to do."

Paus, who opened the game with an incompletion before connecting on his next 11 passes, finished 13-of-16 without being intercepted. He has attempted 189 straight passes, including 122 this season, without an interception.
