Let's take a look at the key numbers from Arizona State's 45-43 loss to UCLA.

1 - Turnovers by ASU, but it was costly. Late in the first half, Taylor Kelly avoided a safety, but his pass was awful and easily intercepted and returned to the Sun Devil five-yard line. One play later, Johnathan Franklin scored for give UCLA their first lead with 1:08 left in the half.

1:33 - Time left in the game when UCLA took possession for the game's final drive.

3.2 - Yards-per-carry of Cameron Marshall, who managed just 57 yards on 18 carries. He now has just 349 yards and five touchdowns through eight games, a year after running 1,050 and 18 scores.

4 - Touchdowns thrown by both Brett Hundley and Taylor Kelly.

9 - Tackles for loss (including five sacks) by ASU, who still managed some effective pressure without Will Sutton.

12 - Touchdowns in 2012 by Marion Grice after he scored three more (one rushing, two receiving) against the Bruins.

17 - Total tackles by UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks, who was everywhere.

53.8% - Third down conversion percentage by UCLA. ASU routinely gave up costly conversions that extended Bruin scoring drives.

60 - Yards allowed by ASU in the last 1:33 of the game to set up UCLA's game-winning field goal.

100% - ASU kicker Jon Mora was a perfect three-for-three on his field goal attempts.

164 - Yards by UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin, who ASU routinely could not stop with Will Sutton out of the lineup

176 - Combined receiving yardage by ASU running backs DJ Foster and Marion Grice, as they continue to show they are the offense's best overall playmakers.
