ASU's 38-33 win over UCLA: By the numbers

Arizona State held on to beat UCLA 38-33 at the Rose Bowl Saturday night, clinching the Pac-12 South title outright.

Here's a look back at the historic win by the numbers:

1:

With a win over the Bruins, the Sun Devils secured their first ever berth in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Dec. 7. ASU knows it'll face Stanford, the question is where. If the Sun Devils beat their in-state rivals, the Arizona Wildcats, next weekend the Cardinal will have to travel to Tempe for the conference title game.

3:

Todd Graham's squad has beaten three ranked teams -- UCLA, Washington and Wisconsin -- this season. Before Saturday night, ASU hadn't beaten a ranked team away from Tempe since 2007.

6:

The Sun Devils' five-point win gives them nine on the year -- the most for the program in six years. Back in that same 2007 season, ASU went 10-2 before a loss to Texas in the Holiday Bowl.

9:

ASU's defense allowed UCLA to get within five in the second half, but managed to hold on thanks in large part to nine sacks of Brett Hundley -- the most the Bruins' offensive line has allowed all season.

12:

With under six minutes to play, UCLA faced a third down and six at the ASU eight-yard line. On the ensuing play, senior safety Chris Young sacked Hundley for a 12-yard loss. Ka'imi Fairbairn missed a 37-yard field goal following the sack, and the Bruins' best chance to retake the lead was thwarted.

76.9

Taylor Kelly picked a perfect time for his most efficient game of the season. The junior quarterback completed 76.9 percent of his passes (21-of-26) for 225 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for a season-high 97 yards and a touchdown.

168:

Marion Grice was held out of the end zone for just the third time this year, but the senior tailback recorded 168 yards from scrimmage, including a season-high 72 yards receiving.

357:

Although they scored just three points after halftime, the Sun Devils did more than enough in the first 30 minutes of play to get out of Pasadena with a victory. ASU scored 35 first-half points on 357 yards of total offense.

1986:

The last time ASU beat UCLA when both teams were ranked was in 1986 -- the same season that the Sun Devils went on to win the program's first and only Rose Bowl.

2007:

The last time ASU beat UCLA at the Rose Bowl was back in Nov. 2007.
