You may have heard the story of Marcus Rios by now.
A few days ago, the UCLA cornerback made an interception in the end zone against California to save a two-point win for the Bruins in the final minute of play. Coach Jim Mora gave Rios the game ball, marking the first time during Mora's tenure with the Bruins that he had made such a move.
Rios nearly died of an extremely rare fungal...
One year ago, when he was in a hospital bed instead of on the football field, Marcus Rios' game-saving moment was one he thought he might never have.
It's easy to point to UCLA's three turnovers and say that they were the story in Saturday's win over California. Or you could say that UCLA's first win at California Memorial Stadium in Berkeley in 16 years was the story.
With time running out and UCLA up by two points, this happened…..
