Associated Press
 

Skip Hicks had three scoring runs, tying his school record of 20 touchdowns in a season, and No. 12 UCLA forced four turnovers and had six sacks in a 27-7 victory over Stanford on Saturday at Stanford, Calif.

Hicks scored on runs of 1 and 4 yards in the first quarter and added a 24-yard scoring run with 1:59 left in the game. The Pac-10 record is 23 touchdowns in a season, set by Marcus Allen for Southern California in 1981 and matched by Washington’s Corey Dillon last year.

Hicks had 26 carries for 121 yards for UCLA (7-2 overall, 5-1 Pac-10), which won its seventh straight game.

In his last 19 games, Hicks has run for at least 100 yards 10 times.
