Baylor quarterback Nick Florence, bottom center, looks for an escape route as UCLA linebackers swarm him on Thursday in San Diego.

 

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Glasco Martin ran for three touchdowns, Nick Florence threw for two scores and ran for another, and Baylor overwhelmed UCLA 49-26 in the Holiday Bowl on Thursday night.

Lache Seastrunk rushed 16 times for 138 yards and one score for Baylor, which outgained UCLA 494-362. The Bears came in leading the nation in total offense with 387.7 yards per game.

Valencia High graduate Steven Manfro returned four kicks for UCLA, totaling 96 yards.

Florence's 188 yards passing gave him 4,309 for the season, breaking Robert Griffin III's 2011 school season record of 4,293.

Baylor's defense came up big, too. The Bears sacked Brett Hundley six times, including two by Chris McAllister.

Baylor (8-5) won its final four games and five of six. UCLA (9-5) lost its final three.

The Bruins were never in this one. Baylor raced to a 21-0 lead by early in the second quarter on Glasco's 4-yard run and Florence's TD passes of 8 yards to Antwan Goodley and 55 yards to Tevin Reese.
