No. 7 UCLA ready to back up hype in season opener

LOS ANGELES (AP) If No. 7 UCLA can live up to the lofty expectations it carries into the new season, its first two road games will merely be trial runs for bigger and better things to come.

Myles Jack calls ejection from UCLA’s Monday practice ‘embarrassing’

On Monday, UCLA head coach Jim Mora tossed his star linebacker from practice at Cal State San Bernardino after the sophomore had an altercation with offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- Myles Jack is a celebrity? Well, that's news to him. UCLA's sophomore linebacker and part-time running back still thinks it's funny that people now know his name.

Running down Heisman contenders not named Jameis

The preseason front-runner for the Heisman Trophy last season was easy. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won it as a freshman the year before, so there was little reason to pick against him.
