Myles Jack, Jim Mora come full circle at UCLA

Long before Jim Mora became a college football coach, he wanted to recruit Myles Jack. Mora first met Jack in Seattle when his son Ryder was playing youth football with Jack's younger brother Jahlen. Mora knew he had a player on his hands. "I remember when they showed up from Georgia and Myles showed up to practice up at this place called Wilburton, he had on his shower...

Bruins look to avoid 'hangover' vs. lowly NM State

This week's test might be the complete opposite scenario from the one UCLA faced last week. After a dominating 41-21 victory on the road against Nebraska, the Bruins moved up to No. 13 in the polls, the highest ranking since November of 2007. But instead of facing a historical powerhouse in front of front of nearly 100,000 people, UCLA (2-0) will face a team that has not made...

UCLA's Goodman explains tweet regarding playing time

UCLA freshman safety Tahaan Goodman is learning the lesson that all freshmen not named Johnny Manziel typically learn when they hit the college level: He's not the best player on the field anymore. Goodman, an prep All-American out of Rancho Cucamonga High, was used to being one of the fastest, most physical and most skilled players each time he took the field. But that was...

A Tale of Two Halves: UCLA Comes Alive To Defeat Nebraska

UCLA Football once again took the opportunity to take over a game in the second half, this time it was against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Mora wants UCLA to 'back up' comeback at Nebraska

UCLA coach Jim Mora isn't making more of the Bruins' come-from-behind road win over Nebraska than he would any other victory. It would be understandable if the Bruins wanted to celebrate this one a little longer. The Bruins scored 38 straight points to overcome an 18-point deficit and beat the Cornhuskers 41-21 on Saturday. It was the biggest comeback by a visitor in the...

Bruins look to avoid 'hangover' vs. winless New Mexico State

LOS ANGELES -- This week's test might be the complete opposite scenario from the one UCLA faced last week. After a dominating 41-21 victory on the road against Nebraska, the Bruins moved up to No. 13 in the polls, the highest ranking since November, 2007.

Pac-12 Hangover - Week 3

As the non-conference games wind to an end, much of the Pac-12 put their own, as well as the conference’s reputation on the line last weekend, butting heads with the ACC, Big-10, SEC, and … well … a couple representatives from leagues that shall remain nameless.  That’s right, while Oregon was playing Tennessee, Cal was playing Ohio State, and ASU was hosting last year...
