PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Johnathan Franklin rushed for 158 yards and three touchdowns, and UCLA rolled to a 31-13 victory Saturday night over No. 23 Houston, which lost star quarterback Case Keenum to an injury for the second straight week.

Kevin Prince passed for 99 yards and rushed for a score as the Bruins (1-2) ricocheted back from a humiliating 35-0 loss to Stanford last week with a stunningly one-sided win over the powerful Cougars (2-1), whose chances for a Conference USA title could be slim without Keenum, the fifth-leading passer in NCAA history.

For the second straight week, Keenum was hurt while trying to make a tackle after an interception. After UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers picked off his throw near the goal line in the second quarter, Keenum was left facedown on the Rose Bowl turf.
