The Good – UCLA’s resolve as a teamThis could not have been an easy game for UCLA. Earlier in the week they lost a teammate in an auto accident. While dealing with that they had to go into a hostile environment in front of 91,000 Nebraska fans.Going into halftime they were down 21-10, and with the way Nebraska played the first half the game looked all but over. But the Bruins came out in the third quarter, and behind the leadership, and arm, of Brett Hundley they scored 28 unanswered points. They looked like a team rejuvenated.

The students will be releasing blue and gold balloons into the air...

Two undefeated ranked teams will face each other on Saturday. No it is not that game but the match-up between the No. 16 UCLA Bruins and No. 23 Nebraska Cornhuskers could be every bit as entertaining.
UCLA will go into Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, NE in a game featuring two top-25 schools.
ABC will carry coverage of the game between UCLA and Nebraska beginning at 12:00 pm ET.
With a favorable upcoming schedule, Nebraska’s only obstacle to a 7-0 start is UCLA. But the Bruins are a tough test for the Cornhuskers,...
Bo Pelini and Taylor Martinez's times in Lincoln started with promise.
Instead, the duo have been the poster boys of something else entirely: a program that simply looks stalled. If the collective minds at Nebraska aren't already thinking it, it's time to wonder if they're the ones to bring the Cornhuskers back to prominence.
Pelini arrived in 2008 with a reputation...
