Hundley on UCLA's season: 'It all comes down to consistency'

The 2014 football season began in Westwood with a buzz that hasn't been heard since Troy Aikman was under center. This was supposed to be UCLA's year -- the year that UCLA football was finally mentioned in the conversation with the other west coast powerhouse programs—Oregon and Stanford. Instead, the Bruins ended the regular season ranked No. 19 with a 9-3 record, on the outside...

UCLA QB Brett Hundley will turn pro, says Coach Mora

UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley probably could have come out this past draft class, but it’s likely a good thing that he stayed in school. All of the 2014 quarterbacks saw their NFL Draft stock fall during the evaluation process, and if Brett Hundley was indeed behind Teddy Bridgewater on the big board to begin with, then it’s a good thing he came back to Westwood for another...

Kendricks becomes UCLA's all-time leading tackler

Eric Kendricks doesn't care much for nostalgia. UCLA's redshirt senior linebacker prefers to live in the now and not in the not-so-distant future. One practice and one game at a time. So when he broke the school's career tackling record in his final game at the Rose Bowl, it didn't matter, he said.  His 470 career tackles didn't help UCLA defeat Stanford, and that was the one and...

UCLA eliminated from Pac-12 contention after seventh-straight loss to Stanford

The Bruins followed a script similar to the one two years ago. After a big win over USC at home, the Bruins followed it up with an anticlimactic loss to Stanford. A season that started out with such promise, and saw all of that promise return in the few weeks, has now ended at the hands of an unranked Cardinal team.  No. 9 UCLA has not beaten Stanford since 2008, and it was the...

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A 6-5 team is all that stands between No. 9 UCLA and the Pac-12 title game, but Stanford is no average team. Well, no average defense, anyway.

UCLA focuses on being 'precise' in upcoming game vs. Stanford

UCLA hasn't beaten Stanford since 2008, but as far as the team is concerned at the moment, it's the three losses since head coach Jim Mora came aboard that stands out the most. Two years ago, the Bruins suffered two-straight losses in two weeks at the hands of the Cardinal. Last year's matchup on the farm was a slug-fest that left several Bruins injured and frustrated. And while...
