You don't get to add players at this point in time. We've got to put them in positions to make plays and give them an opportunity to execute.
That is on us as a coaching staff. Stanford put together its most complete effort of the season before heading into last week's bye, dominating the time of possession in a win over Washington.
Running back Demetric Felton had scrimmage yards against the Beavers, but the Bruins' defense allowed Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton to throw for a career-high five touchdowns passes and run for another. UCLA ranks near the bottom of the country in passing yards allowed Costello sidelined because of injuries.
Scarlett rushed a career-high 33 times for yards and a touchdown in the win over Washington and has all-purpose yards to lead the Cardinal, which is averaging nearly 35 minutes in time of possession, fourth-best in the country.
The defense is led by cornerback Paulson Adebo, who ranks in the top 10 nationally in passes defended, pass breakups and passes defended per game. Stanford is at home since the start of the season. UCLA's largest lead in a game this season has been seven points.
Stanford is when leading at halftime under Shaw and has won 58 of its last 61 games when leading after three quarters.
