Linebacker Anthony Barr celebrates a sack on Rice quarterback Taylor McHargue during UCLA's 49-24 victory over the Owls in the team's season opener on Aug. 30.

HOUSTON - Johnathan Franklin rushed for 214 yards and three touchdowns as UCLA racked up 343 yards on the ground en route to a 49-24 win over Rice in the team’s season opener on Aug. 30 in Houston. Redshirt freshman Brett Hundley was 21 of 28 for 202 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown. Joseph Fauria caught three passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. After a scoreless third quarter, UCLA put the game away with a 3-yard touchdown pass from Hundley to Fauria to make it 41-24 after the two-point conversion failed with 12:29 left in the game. Franklin extended the lead to 49-24 with a 22-yard touchdown run and Hundley connected with David Allen for the two-point conversion with 7:54 remaining in the fourth. Hundley, who was playing in his first college game, took UCLA's first snap from scrimmage and ran 72 yards down the right sideline for a touchdown. The point after was blocked to make it 6-0. After Sheldon Price's interception of Taylor McHargue, UCLA took three plays to go 47 yards and score on an 11-yard pass from Hundley to Jerry Johnson. The PAT was blocked again to make it 12-0. Franklin took UCLA's first snap on its next drive 74 yards to extend the Bruins' lead to 19-0. The Owls got on the board with a six-play, 75-yard drive capped by an 8-yard pass from McHargue to Luke Wilson to cut the lead to 19-7 with 6:08 remaining in the first and sliced the lead to nine on a Chris Boswell 53-yard field goal four minutes later. After Rice recovered a Bruins' fumbled punt return, the Owls trimmed the lead to 19-17 on a McHargue 1-yard touchdown run UCLABRUINS.COM

UCLA finished with 646 total yards in Jim Mora's first game as head coach, compared to 347 for Rice. Franklin just missed his career high of 216 yards rushing set in 2010 against Washington State.

Top Individuals Defensive end Datone Jones and the Bruins knocked off Big 10 powerhouse Nebraska, 36-30 before over 71,000 fans at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 8.

Pasadena, Calif. - Brett Hundley passed for 305 yards and four touchdowns in an outstanding Rose Bowl debut, Datone Jones sacked Taylor Martinez for the tiebreaking two points with 8:44 to play, and UCLA surprised the No. 17 Cornhuskers 36-30 at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 8. Johnathan Franklin rushed for 217 yards and caught an 8-yard TD pass with 2:13 to play for the Bruins, who improved to 2-0 under new coach Jim Mora with an impressive offensive performance against the Huskers (1-1). But the Bruins couldn't stay ahead until Jones read a pass play in Martinez's eyes and closed on the quarterback with ferocious speed. ''We all made a promise to each other that we weren't going to bow down this year,'' Jones said. ''We came into this year with another chance to play for our team and our family, and we want it to be a good season.'' Joseph Fauria caught two TD passes and Steven Manfro grabbed another from Hundley, the redshirt freshman who went 21 for 31 and coolly led the Bruins to 653 total yards. Even after every big play in his precocious debut, nothing made Hundley light up like his memory of Jones' ferocious sack. ''We were sitting in the sideline, just chilling, and then Datone sacks him, and it's an explosion in the Rose Bowl,'' Hundley said. ''That's just what we needed.'' After Jones put the Bruins ahead in a defense-dominated second half, Andrew Abbott intercepted a long pass by Martinez and returned it to the Nebraska 16, setting up Franklin's TD catch. Brett Maher's third field goal pulled the Huskers within 36-30 20

Rushing - Franklin (U) 26-217, Hundley (U) 12-53, Thigpen (U) 7-37; Abdullah (N) 16-119, T. Martinez (U) 13-112; Receiving - Manfro (U) 4-64, Fauria (U) 4-42, Lucien (U) 3-70, Franklin (U) 3-59; Bell (N) 6-108; Passing - Hundley (U) 21-33-0-305, Brehaut 1-5-0-4; Martinez (N) 17-31-1-179; Interceptions - Abbott (U) 1-24

with 1:38 left, but UCLA recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock on just its second win over Nebraska in eight meetings since 1973. ''We just have a different mentality this year,'' Hundley said. ''We come out and learn from our mistakes, and we play our game. Coach Mora has done an amazing job with this team.'' UCLA has topped 640 yards of offense in each of its first two games under new offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone, the former Arizona State coordinator. Hundley, who rushed for a 72-yard TD on his first collegiate snap last week, repeatedly targeted Fauria, his 6-foot-7 tight end, and freshman receiver Devin Lucien. ''That's a pretty good defense we were going against,'' Mora said. ''That's the Blackshirts out there. For us to step up and run the ball like that, and to see Brett throwing like that, it's great.'' Martinez passed for 179 yards and made a 92-yard TD run in his return to his native Southern California. Ameer Abdullah rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns for the Huskers, who struggled on both sides of the ball in the second half and failed to go 2-0 for the first time since 2004. Both teams made significant mistakes in the third quarter, with Nebraska fumbling on its first play and UCLA later failing on a fake field goal from 37 yards. When Hundley left the game for a few plays to get his right ankle re-taped, the Bruins had to settle for a field goal inside the Nebraska 5. The Huskers didn't convert a third down until the first play of the fourth quarter, but Maher barely missed a go-ahead, 37-yard field goal with 12:12 to play. Courtesy: AP

Top Individuals Damien Thigpen and the Bruins improved to 3-0 on the season with a 37-6 victory over Houston at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 15.

Pasadena, Calif. - Redshirt freshman Brett Hundley passed for 320 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 22 UCLA's hard-hitting defense held high-scoring Houston in check as the Bruins beat the Cougars 37-6 at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 15. Johnathan Franklin, the nation's leading rusher, gained 110 yards on 25 carries, Sheldon Price tied a school record with three of UCLA's five interceptions, and Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked three field goals to help the unbeaten Bruins earn their third-straight victory under first-year coach Jim Mora. Hundley completed 27 of 42 passes with two interceptions. Franklin, a senior who averaged 215.5 yards in his team's first two games, moved into second place on UCLA's career rushing list with 3,210 yards. Gaston Green gained 3,731 yards in the 1980s. Houston's David Piland completed 28 of 60 passes for 249 yards with the five interceptions. Piland's 86-yard run with 4:54 remaining kept the Cougars from being shut out for the first time in nearly 12 years. UCLA finished with 29 first downs and 567 yards of total offense. The Bruins averaged 649.5 yards in their first two games to rank third in the country. Houston finished with 14 first downs and 388 yards in total offense. The Cougars averaged 31 points and 395.5 yards in their first two games. The Bruins led 17-0 after a dominant first half. The lead might have been bigger but for three second-quarter turnovers in Houston territory. UCLA went ahead for good on the game's second play when linebacker Eric Kendricks returned Piland's errant backward pass intended for Ronnie Williams 23 yards for a touchdown.

The Bruins moved 90 yards on 17 plays on their third possession, scoring on a 7-yard pass from Hundley to Datone Jones to make it 14-0. It was the first career reception for Jones, a fifth-year senior who starts at defensive end. UCLA appeared on the verge of scoring again before D.J. Hayden picked off Hundley's sideline pass at the Houston 9 on the first play of the second period. But UCLA forced a punt and Steven Manfro returned it 27 yards to the Cougars 26, setting up a 35-yard field goal by Fairbairn. Houston was unable to capitalize after recovering fumbles at its 31 and 29 on the next two UCLA possessions. The Cougars crossed midfield for the first time after the second recovery, but Matt Hogan was wide left on a 46-yard field goal. Damien Thigpen returned the second-half kickoff 55 yards, setting up a 45-yard, six-play scoring drive capped by Hundley's 12-yard pass to Jordon James. The Bruins committed their fourth turnover midway through the third quarter, but Tevin McDonald's 50-yard interception return two plays later set up a 23-yard field goal by Fairbairn. An interception by Price on Houston's first play following the kickoff set up a 33-yard field goal by Fairbairn that made it 30-0. Houston reached the UCLA 12-yard line early in the final period before Price made his third interception in the end zone for the Cougars' sixth turnover. Manfro's 14-yard run with 3:10 remaining completed the scoring for the game. Courtesy: AP

Despite quarterback Brett Hundley's 372 yards of passing against Oregon State on Sept. 22 at the Rose Bowl, the Bruins still suffered a narrow 27-20 loss to the Beavers.

Pasadena, Calif. - Brett Hundley completed 27 of 42 passes for 372 yards as the No. 19 UCLA football team dropped a 27-20 decision in both teams' Pac-12 opening contest at the Rose Bowl on Sept. 22. The host Bruins (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) entered having scored 15 touchdowns and having averaged 622.0 yards to rank second nationally in total offense. Oregon State (2-0, 1-0) held them to 444 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. UCLA's Johnathan Franklin was held to 45 yards on 12 carries. He averaged 8.2 yards per carry in his team's previous three games. Sean Mannion passed for a career-high 379 yards and two touchdowns, Oregon State put the clamps on No. 19 UCLA's offense, and the Beavers opened their Pacific 12 Conference season by topping the Bruins 27-20 Saturday. Mannion, a third-year sophomore, completed 24 of 35 passes with one interception and has passed for 200 or more yards in 13 straight games. Oregon State's Markus Wheaton had nine receptions for 150 yards and has caught at least one pass in 25 consecutive games. Brandin Cooks had six catches for 175 yards, and Storm Woods rushed for 96 yards on 21 carries for the Beavers. Oregon State had played just once in the season's first three weeks, beating then-No. 13 Wisconsin 10-7 on Sept. 8. The season opener against Nicholls State was postponed because of concerns over Hurricane Isaac. Trailing 17-10, the Bruins were unable to capitalize on two

scoring chances in the third quarter. First, UCLA couldn't convert a fourth-and-2 at the Oregon State 35-yard line after Anthony Barr forced a fumble by Mannion at the Beavers 43 and Tevin McDonald recovered. The Bruins got another chance when Stan McKay intercepted Mannion's pass at the Beavers 48 on the next play, but they were forced to punt. The Beavers then moved 88 yards on 13 plays to take a 24-10 lead, scoring on a 2-yard run by Storm Woods one play after a pass interference penalty against Sheldon Price on third-and-goal. UCLA responded by getting a 1-yard sneak from Hundley that capped a 75-yard drive and made it 24-17 with 14:01 to play.

Boulder, Colo. - One week after suffering their first loss of the season against Oregon State, Brett Hundley, Johnathan Franklin and the rest of the UCLA Bruins bounced back in impressive fashion, downing Colorado 42-14 on Sept. 29 in Boulder, Colo. The Bruin's 4-1 record mark's UCLA's best start since 2007. Hundley threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for two scores as the Bruins (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) improved to 30-10-2 in the weeks following a loss that dropped them from the rankings. They tumbled from No. 19 last week with a loss at home to Oregon State. Franklin set the tone early, running for 97 of his 111 yards in the first half and catching all three of his passes for 48 yards as the Bruins jumped ahead 21-7 at the break. The Buffaloes (1-4, 1-1) were driving in the third quarter when they were stuffed on fourth-and-1 at midfield, then coughed up the ball on their next two possessions. Leading a swarming Bruins defense were linebackers Anthony Barr and Damien Holmes, who combined for four sacks, seven tackles for loss and three hurries of quarterback Jordan Webb. The Buffaloes rallied past Washington State last week with three touchdowns in the final seven minutes, and they needed a similar comeback this time after falling behind by three TDs through three quarters. It was the Bruins who poured on the points this time, sealing their first win in Boulder since a 33-16 victory in 1984. They returned in 2003, losing 16-14. Franklin, who was limited to 45 yards a week earlier, had a big first half, when his 28-yard bob-and-weave on a screen pass set up

Hundley's 1-yard TD keeper that put UCLA ahead 21-7 at halftime. UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks and free safety Tevin McDonald had a monster second half, teaming up to stuff Tony Jones on fourth-and-1 at midfield in the third quarter when the Buffs had the momentum and still harbored hopes of an upset, then combining for a crucial takeaway on their next series. McDonald punched the ball free after tight end Vincent Hobbs hauled in a long pass and Kendricks scooped it up. The Bruins poured it on from there, starting with Hundley's 8-yard TD pass to Joseph Fauria that made it 28-7. Safety Stan McKay picked off a pass from Webb at midfield and returned it to the Colorado 35, setting up a 25-yard TD run by Franklin's backup, Jordon James. Franklin was the lead blocker on running back Damien Thigpen's 23-yard touchdown on a reverse that made it 42-7. The Buffaloes gained just 35 yards in their first four possessions before Webb threw a 17-yard scoring strike to Dustin Ebner, the senior's first career touchdown. Nick Hirschman threw Colorado's other TD pass, a 31-yarder to tight end Nick Kasa in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. Courtesy: AP

Safety Tevin McDonald and the Bruins fell to 4-2 on the season after suffering a 43-17 loss at California's Memorial Stadium on Oct. 6.

Berkeley, Calif. - Zach Maynard matched his career high with four touchdown passes and added a fifth on the ground and California took advantage of six turnovers to stun No. 25 UCLA 43-17 on Oct. 6 at Memorial Stadium. Coming off one of the worst games of his career, Maynard threw an interception on the first series of the game and repeatedly picked himself up off the turf at Memorial Stadium after getting drilled by the Bruins defense to help the Golden Bears (2-4, 1-2 Pac-12) end their three-game losing streak. UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, a redshirt freshman who has looked strong running UCLA's spread offense, never found his rhythm. He had a season-high 31 completions and passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns, but couldn't prevent the Bruins from coming out of Berkeley with a win. The ending was in sharp contrast to the opening drive for UCLA. The Bruins got creative when Hundley threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Cassius Marsh, a defensive end who lined up on the left side of the offensive line then ran a short out pattern. It's a formation UCLA has used previously this season, but the first time Marsh, a 275-pound senior, has scored. Cal responded with a 26-yard field goal by Vicenzo D'Amato then took the lead on Maynard's 9-yard touchdown pass to Anderson midway through the second quarter. Maynard got the drive started with a 42-yard completion to tight end Rodgers then capped it with the throw to Anderson, who beat safety Tevin McDonald on an slant pattern.

That came after Hundley was charged with a fumble after his short pass in the left flat to Devin Fuller was ruled a lateral and recovered by Cal's Nick Forbes. After UCLA kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn missed a 46-yard field goal attempt, the Bruins forced a punt but Kenny Orjioke ran into return man Steven Manfro as Manfro was calling for a fair catch. The ball hit Orjioke in the back and Cal pounced on it. Five plays later, Maynard connected with Allen for an 8-yard touchdown on an inside slant play similar to the one run by Anderson. The Bruins committed their third turnover of the first half when Hundley threw an interception in the end zone after the intended receiver stopped his route well short of the goal line. UCLA pulled within 29-17 on Fairbairn's 30-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, but Cal's defense came up with two more interceptions to secure the win. Courtesy: AP

Andrew Abbott and the Bruins' defense held Utah to just 75 yards on the ground in a 21-14 victory at the Rose Bowl on Oct. 13.

Pasadena, Calif. - Brett Hundley passed for 183 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 68 yards and another score, and UCLA's defense largely shut down Utah in a 21-14 victory on Oct. 13 at the Rose Bowl. Johnathan Franklin rushed for 79 yards and a TD for the Bruins (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12), who bounced back solidly from a loss to California last weekend. Shaquelle Evans caught a 64-yard TD pass from Hundley, who showed off his poise while winning a duel with Travis Wilson. Utah's freshman quarterback passed for 220 yards in his first career start, but the Utes (2-4, 0-3) lost their third straight. UCLA's defense shut out the Utah offense until Wilson led a 90yard drive capped by Jon Hays' 1-yard TD pass to Dres Anderson with 3:16 to play. Anderson, the son of former UCLA receiver Flipper Anderson, had nine catches for 70 yards for the Utes, who have never won at the Rose Bowl. Utah is off to another winless start in Pac-12 play after starting 0-4 last year before a strong finish. Utah got its only points of the first three quarters when Ryan Lacy recovered a muffed punt return by UCLA's Steven Manfro in the end zone late in the first quarter. Hundley went 15 for 21 in another impressive performance against a strong defense, showing off his smarts and athleticism while leading several lengthy drives. Franklin moved closer to the top spot on UCLA's career rushing list with another grind-it-out effort, most notably picking up a crucial first down with just over 2 minutes to play. But Andrew Abbott intercepted a tipped pass by Wilson on the freshman's opening drive, and UCLA mounted a 13-play scoring march capped by Hundley's expert ball fake on a 12-yard TD run up the middle.

Utah evened it 65 seconds later thanks to Manfro, who attempted to field a booming punt while backpedaling furiously toward the UCLA goal line. Manfro missed two chances to control the ball before Lacy picked it up in the end zone. Hundley put the Bruins back in front 67 seconds later with a sideline pass to Evans, who ran untouched into the end zone after a Utah defender gambled on an interception. After UCLA opened the second half by stopping Utah on fourth down at the Bruins 34, Hundley calmly engineered a 14-play scoring drive capped by Franklin's 3-yard TD run. Utah finally got moving in the waning minutes, reaching the UCLA 3 with a trick play featuring receiver DeVonte Christopher throwing a 23-yard pass to Wilson. Wilson then rushed inside the UCLA 1 on third down, but his helmet came off on the play, forcing Hays to take his first snap. The senior calmly hit Anderson, who stretched over the goal line for Utah's first offensive TD. Utah didn't try an onside kick, and UCLA picked up a first down while running the clock down to 8 seconds before punting. The Utes' final trick play went nowhere. Courtesy: AP

Ka'imi Fairbairn knocked in a 33-yard field goal as time expired on Oct. 27 in Tempe, Ariz., helping UCLA to a 45-43 victory over ASU.

Tempe, Ariz. - Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked a 33-yard field goal as the game ended and UCLA escaped with a 45-43 shootout victory over Arizona State on Oct. 27 at ASU's Sun Devil Stadium. Freshman Brett Hundley, playing a few miles from where he grew up, drove the Bruins (6-2, 3-2 Pac-12) into field-goal range after Tyler Kelly's 7-yard touchdown pass to D.J. Foster put the Sun Devils (5-3, 3-2) ahead 43-42 with 1:33 to play. Hundley completed 19 of 31 for 274 yards and four touchdowns. Johnathan Franklin rushed for 164 yards, leaving him 20 yards shy of the UCLA career rushing record. Damien Thigpen put UCLA ahead 42-33 with his second TD pass of the day from Hundley, a 20-yarder with 9:01 to play. But the Sun Devils scored the next 10 to regain the lead. Kelly completed 25 of 35 for 315 yards and four touchdowns with one costly interception that led to a UCLA touchdown that put the Bruins ahead 21-17 at the half. Foster caught seven passes for 107 yards and rushed for 61 yards on 13 carries. Hundley, who starred for Chandler (Ariz.) High School, threw his 18th touchdown pass of the season, breaking the freshman record of 17 set by Tommy Maddox in 1990. Hundley became the first quarterback to pass for more than 200 yards this season against Arizona State, playing with a battered defense. There was more than 1,000 yards of offense - 535 for Arizona State, 486 for UCLA. Kelly's 31-yard burst up the middle set up the go-ahead touchdown on a bright afternoon in the desert. But the Sun Devils, losers at home for the second game in a row after dropping a 43-21 decision to Oregon, left too much time for the Bruins, who had moved the ball up and down the field all afternoon. 26

The Sun Devils looked to nurse a 17-14 lead into halftime with the ball on their 4-yard line and 1:19 to go. But they went with a pass play and Kelly, with UCLA's Cassius Marsh all over him, threw an ill-advised floater that Dalton Hilliard intercepted at the Arizona State 5. Franklin scored on the next play and UCLA led for the first time, 21-17. Arizona State jumped to a 14-0 lead with the game barely five minutes old. The first touchdown came after UCLA's Steven Manfro appeared to lose Josh Hubner's soaring punt in the bright sun. Manfro muffed the catch and Deveron Carr recovered at the Bruins' 13. Two plays later, Kelly threw 7 yards to Kevin Ozier for the score with 13:13 still left in the opening quarter. The Sun Devils mounted a 70-yard drive on their next possession. Marion Grice, who also had two TD catches, scored from the 2 to make it 14-0. But the Bruins responded with two long scoring drives. Franklin carried five times for 39 yards on a 13-play, 75-yard drive for UCLA's first score. His 3-yard run cut the lead to 14-7 with 6:24 still to go in the first. The drive was aided when Arizona State's Junior Onyeali shoved Hundley after the quarterback had released the ball and was called for roughing the passer. The 15-yard penalty came on a third-down incompletion. The Bruins tied it before the first period ended. Hubner's career-long 68-yard punt rolled dead at the 2, and the Bruins responded with a 10-play, 98-yard drive - their longest of the season. Hundley threw over the middle 15 yards to freshman Devin Fuller and it was 14-14 with 1:05 left in the quarter. Jon Mora, taking over field-goal duties from Alex Garoutte, made one from 36 yards to put Arizona State up 17-14 with 11:09 left in the half. Hundley was 5 for 5 for 127 yards in the third quarter, including touchdown plays of 65 and 4 yards to Joseph Fauria, who made a fingertip grab to put UCLA up 35-26 with 7:32 left in the period.

After breaking UCLA's career rushing record earlier in the game, Johnathan Franklin saved his biggest celebration for Melvin Emesibe, who scored his first career TD against the Wildcats.

Pasadena, Calif. - Johnathan Franklin had 162 yards in becoming No. 25 UCLA's career rushing leader, redshirt freshman Brett Hundley passed for 288 yards and three touchdowns, and the Bruins overwhelmed No. 24 Arizona 66-10 on Nov. 3 to move into first place in the Pac-12 South. Franklin, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound senior from Los Angeles, entered the game needing 21 yards to overtake Gaston Green, who gained 3,731 yards from 1984-87. Franklin moved into the top spot with a 37-yard touchdown run on his third carry, capping a 75-yard, nine-play drive following the opening kickoff that put the Bruins (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) ahead for good. Franklin, who carried 24 times and scored twice, raised his career rushing total to 3,873 yards as the Bruins, off to their best start since 2005 under first-year coach Jim Mora, raced to a 42-3 halftime lead in snapping a five-game losing streak to the Wildcats (5-4, 2-4). The Bruins called a timeout after Franklin's record-breaking run to allow teammates to congratulate him. The crowd of 81,673 at the Rose Bowl joined in the celebration. Franklin came into the game as the country's seventh-leading rusher. Hundley, who completed 16 straight passes at one stage, finished with 23 completions in 28 attempts without being intercepted. The 66 points were the most scored by the Bruins since Oct. 4, 1997, when they beat Houston 66-10. UCLA gained 371 of its 611 yards in the first half against a shaky Arizona defense, which came into the game ranked 110th out of 120 teams in total defense. The Wildcats, ranked fourth nationally in total offense with a 553.6-yard average, gained just 83 of their 257 yards in the opening 30 minutes.

Arizona's Matt Scott, ranked second nationally in total offense at 386.1 yards per game, completed 15 of 25 passes for 124 yards before being shaken up and leaving the game midway through the third quarter. Scott was unable to finish his team's 39-36 upset of USC last weekend after being injured late in the game. Ka'Deem Carey, the country's 12th-leading rusher, was held to 54 yards on 16 carries. The Bruins took a 21-0 lead before Arizona got a first down, scoring on Franklin's record-setting run, a 6-yard keeper by Hundley seven plays after an 18-yard punt by Kyle Dugandzic gave UCLA the ball at the Wildcats 34-yard line, and a 17-yard pass from Hundley to Jordan Payton that finished an 85-yard drive. David Allen recovered a muffed punt by Arizona's Richard Morrison at the Wildcats 39-yard line early in the second quarter, and Damien Thigpen scored on a 1-yard run three plays later to make it 28-0. John Bonano's 28-yard field goal midway through the second period put Arizona on the scoreboard, but Franklin scored on a 2-yard run to cap a 75-yard, 11-play drive. A 36-yard punt return by Randall Goforth to the Arizona 32 set up a 1-yard TD pass from Hundley to Joseph Fauria with 14 seconds left before halftime. Ka'imi Fairbairn's 25-yard field goal early in the third quarter made it 45-3 before the usually high-scoring Wildcats finally scored a touchdown on Carey's 2-yard run. B.J. Denker, who relieved Scott, fumbled on his second play and Cassius Marsh recovered for the Bruins. Hundley threw a 28-yard scoring pass to Fauria on the next play to make it 52-10. Steven Manfro scored on a 14-yard run and Melvin Emesibe added a 1-yard plunge in the final period for UCLA. Courtesy: AP

Brett Hundley was 23-of-28 for 288 yards and three touchdowns, as the Bruins notched a 44-36 victory over Washington State on Nov. 10 in Pullman, Wash.

Pullman, Wash. - Brett Hundley threw three touchdown passes to help No. 17 UCLA beat Washington State 44-36 on on Oct. 10 at Martin Stadium in Pullman, Wash. With the win, UCLA extended its winning streak to four in a row since a loss at California on Oct. 6, moving into first place in the Pac-12 South. "We are 8-2," UCLA coach Jim Mora said. "We won a game in difficult conditions. That bodes well for UCLA football." Washington State (2-8, 0-7) has lost seven straight and new coach Mike Leach is still looking for his first league win. Connor Halliday threw five touchdown passes in the loss. Washington State dominated the first quarter, then was outscored 30-0 in the second quarter as Hundley threw three touchdown passes and the Bruins piled up 181 yards. The Bruins' defense blocked two WSU field goal attempts, returning one for a touchdown. They also returned a fumble for a score and knocked WSU quarterback Jeff Tuel out of the game. Washington State took the opening kickoff and drove to the UCLA 23, where the drive stalled. Andrew Furney's field goal attempt was blocked by Datone Jones, and the ball was picked up by UCLA's Sheldon Price, who ran it back 68 yards for a touchdown. On the next drive, the Cougars got to the 1-yard line before a penalty pushed them back to the 16. Furney's 33-yard field goal attempt was blocked by Cassius Marsh. Washington State finally scored on its third deep drive of the first quarter, when Halliday hit Dominique Williams with a 6-yard touchdown pass to tie the score at 7-7. Halliday had just gone into 28

Halliday fumbled after a hit from Marsh and the ball was picked up by UCLA's Eric Kendricks, who ran 40 yards for a touchdown and a 37-7 halftime lead. Washington State cut into UCLA's lead in the second half while holding the Bruins to one score. Halliday threw touchdown passes to Brett Bartolone and Marcus Mason in the third, while Jordon James added a touchdown for UCLA on a 2-yard run. Halliday threw fourth quarter touchdown passes to Dominique Williams and Kristoff Williams, the last with 1:31 left. Mora credited Washington State for continuing to play hard in the second half. "We did not lose intensity," Mora said. "Washington State fought their butts off the whole game." "We got the job done, that's all that matters," added linebacker Eric Kendricks, who scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery. Courtesy: AP

UCLA's defense made it a tough day for USC quarterback Matt Barkley, as the Bruins went on to post a 38-28 victory at the Rose Bowl, snapping a five-game losing streak to the Trojans.

Pasadena, Calif. - Brett Hundley passed for 234 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two more scores as No. 17 UCLA beat Southern California, 38-28 on Nov. 17, clinching the Pac-12 South title and emphatically snapping a five-game losing streak in their crosstown showdown. Eric Kendricks blocked a punt and made a fourth-quarter interception for the Bruins (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12), who overcame intermittent second-half rain and USC's star-studded lineup for a gutsy victory that puts them atop Los Angeles' football hierarchy. UCLA punctuated its one-year revitalization under Jim Mora with its first win over the Trojans (7-4, 5-4) since 2006. The football hierarchy in Los Angeles has flipped - and even Kiffin acknowledged it. "I can't argue that," said Kiffin, who has been assured he'll return by athletic director Pat Haden. "When you lose the game, you can't argue. That's why they play the games, so congrats to them. Obviously, we're not thrilled about it, but we're going to get it fixed." Matt Barkley passed for 301 yards and two touchdowns, but threw two interceptions in the Trojans' third loss in four games. Johnathan Franklin rushed for 171 yards and two touchdowns for UCLA, including a clutch 29-yard scoring run with 4:02 to play. Sheldon Price then blocked USC's field-goal attempt with 1:34 left, and the Bruins stormed the field after the final gun before celebrating with students in the corner of the Rose Bowl. Shaquelle Evans had eight catches for 114 yards for UCLA, which clinched a spot in the Pac-12 title game in two weeks with its fifth consecutive win. The Bruins also played in that game last year, but only by default after finishing two games behind postseason-banned USC. Everything has changed in Los Angeles this season: UCLA entered this showdown with a higher ranking and more victories than USC for the first time in a decade, and the Bruins backed it up with a decisive win. Franklin and Joseph Fauria scored while UCLA jumped out to an early 24-0 lead under a morning mist that turned into serious rain by halftime at the Rose Bowl. UCLABRUINS.COM

USC trimmed its huge early deficit to 24-20 on George Uko's fumble recovery in the end zone in the third quarter. The Trojans pulled within 31-28 with Marqise Lee's 14-yard TD catch and a 2-point conversion with 7:22 to play. But Hundley and the Bruins coolly mounted an 83-yard drive, converting a long third down before Franklin sped in for the clinching score. While Hundley led UCLA with the same preternatural calm he has shown all year, going 22 for 30 without an interception, Barkley threw an interception on the game's first play and rarely looked comfortable. Barkley was hammered on a blind-side sack by UCLA's Anthony Barr with 2:21 to play, spending a long moment on the Rose Bowl turf before walking off gingerly. He watched USC's final drive from the sideline. Nelson Agholor and Randall Telfer caught TD passes for the Trojans, and Curtis McNeal rushed for 158 yards. Lee had nine catches for 158 yards, and All-American Robert Woods had five catches for 68 yards. After Aaron Hester intercepted Barkley's first pass into double coverage, Hundley scored on a 1-yard keeper just 81 seconds in to give UCLA its first lead in the rivalry game since 2008. The interception was Barkley's 14th of the season, doubling his total as a junior. Moments later, UCLA mounted an 18-play, 84-yard drive stretching more than 7:30, with Hundley completing his first 10 passes before the Bruins hit a field goal. After Lee fumbled while curiously lined up as a tailback, UCLA scored on Hundley's pretty fade to the 6-foot-7 Fauria. Franklin's 16-yard TD run up the middle in the second quarter. USC's offense finally came alive in the final minutes of the first half, with Barkley leading two drives ending in TD throws to Agholor and Telfer. A significant rain began to fall at halftime, and it immediately bothered the Bruins on a wacky play during their opening drive. Hundley and Franklin both fumbled before two diving linemen knocked the ball into the end zone, where Uko fell on it. But after Kendricks blocked Kyle Negrete's punt, Hundley scored again from 3 yards out for UCLA's third TD on a short drive set up by its defense and special teams. Courtesy: AP

UCLA suffered just its third loss of the season in its final regularseason game on Nov. 24, falling to Stanford, 35-17 before 68,228 fans at the Rose Bowl.

Pasadena, Calif. - UCLA coach Jim Mora made it clear his Bruins weren't at their best Saturday in losing to Stanford. Mora and his players are just grateful to get another shot at the Cardinal next Friday. "Congratulations to Stanford. They played a heck of a game and they're a heck of a football team," Mora said after the 11th-ranked Cardinal beat No. 15 UCLA 35-17 to win the Pacific-12 North title and a rematch with the Bruins in the conference championship game at Stanford. "We have some things that we have to do to get better by Friday night. We will get right back to work." Stepfan Taylor rushed for 142 yards and two touchdowns, and Kevin Hogan passed for 160 yards and another score for the Cardinal (10-2, 8-1 Pac-12), who had to beat the Bruins to earn a rematch because No. 5 Oregon (11-1, 8-1) beat Oregon State 48-24 earlier Saturday. The Cardinal, who have three straight 10-win seasons for the first time, handed Oregon a 17-14 overtime setback last weekend to put themselves in position to win the North title with a victory over the South champion Bruins (9-3, 6-3), who earned their berth in the title game by beating Southern California 38-28 last weekend. The win was the sixth straight for Stanford and its fourth in a row over UCLA, which had a five-game winning streak snapped - its longest in seven years. UCLA redshirt freshman Brett Hundley completed 20 of 38 passes for 261 yards and a touchdown with one interception while being sacked seven times, and Johnathan Franklin, the Bruins' leading career rusher, was held to 65 yards on 21 carries. Stanford entered ranked second nationally in sacks and rushing defense. Taylor, a 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior who carried 20 times, didn't play in the fourth quarter, but Stanford coach David Shaw said his star running back was fine. Taylor raised his career rushing total to 4,134 yards and will need 36 yards in the rematch with UCLA to break the Stanford career rushing record of 4,169 yards set by Darrin Nelson in 1977-81. Hogan, a redshirt freshman making his third start at quarterback for Stanford, completed 15 of 22 passes without being intercepted and was sacked twice. He has guided the Cardinal to wins over three straight ranked opponents, something they had never accomplished before. UCLA was held to 334 yards of total offense while Stanford gained 381 yards overall. 30

Leading 21-10, the Cardinal broke the game open by scoring twice in a 13-second span midway through the third quarter. Taylor scored on a 1-yard run four plays after Jordan Richards intercepted Hundley's pass at the UCLA 42, and Alex Debniak forced a fumble by Kenneth Walker on the ensuing kickoff and Usua Amanam returned it 11 yards for another TD. Franklin's 11-yard TD late in the third quarter cut Stanford's lead to 18 points, and it appeared the Bruins got another shot early in the fourth quarter on Jordan Zumwalt's interception in Cardinal territory, but it was nullified by a defensive holding penalty. Stanford's Jordan Williamson hit the crossbar on a 45-yard field goal attempt with 9:46 remaining, but the Bruins lost the ball on downs after getting as far as the Stanford 38. UCLA reached the Cardinal 14 before turning the ball over on downs again with 2:30 left. Perhaps inspired by the knowledge that Oregon had won, Stanford moved 75 yards on 12 plays after receiving the opening kickoff for a 7-0 lead, scoring on an 11-yard pass from Hogan to Drew Terrell. The Bruins needed only two minutes to tie it, getting a 13-yard touchdown pass from Hundley to Joseph Fauria three plays after Hundley hooked up with Shaquelle Evans on a 71-yard pass play. The 6-foot-7 Fauria has 11 TD receptions this season. UCLA moved to the Cardinal 38 late in the first quarter before Hundley's pooch punt on fourth-and-3 was downed at the Stanford 1. The Bruins forced a punt, but couldn't take advantage of the good field position and had to punt as well. Stanford then moved 88 yards on 10 plays for a 14-7 lead, scoring on a 10-yard run by Anthony Wilkerson, and the Cardinal scored again less than two minutes later on a 49-yard run by Taylor. UCLA got a break late in the second quarter when Stanford punter Daniel Zychlinski couldn't handle a low snap from center and was hit before getting the kick off, setting up a career-best 48-yard field goal by freshman Ka'imi Fairbairn with 1:37 left before halftime, making it 21-10. UCLA didn't get a first down in the second period. The game, played before a crowd of 68,228 at the Rose Bowl, was the first between the schools in which both were ranked among the Top 25 since 2001, when No. 20 Stanford beat No. 24 UCLA 38-28.

Johnathan Franklin broke UCLA's single-season rushing record in the Pac-12 Championship game at Stanford on Nov. 30, however the Bruins suffered a 27-24 loss at the hands of the Cardinal.

Stanford, Calif. - Kevin Hogan threw for 155 yards and a touchdown and ran for 49 yards and another score, helping the eighth-ranked Cardinal beat No. 17 UCLA 27-24 in the Pac-12 championship game Friday night. The redshirt freshman won game MVP honors to put Stanford in the Rose Bowl for the first time in more than a decade. As a defender barreled into him, Hogan hurled a 26-yard tying touchdown to Drew Terrell on third-and-15 early in the fourth quarter. Jordan Williamson kicked his second field goal from 36 yards with 6:49 remaining for the go-ahead score to seal Stanford's first conference title since the 1999 season. UCLA's Brett Hundley threw for 177 yards and a costly interception that set up a Stanford touchdown. He still almost brought the Bruins (9-4) back, but Ka'imi Fairbairn missed a 52-yard field goal wide left in the closing moments for a disappointing loss. Hogan completed 16 of 22 passes to beat a fourth ranked opponent in his fourth straight start since unseating Josh Nunes at quarterback. After the Cardinal rolled past UCLA 35-17 last Saturday at the Rose Bowl, it took all 60 minutes for another victory in the rare rematch. The heavy rain that pounded the Bay Area most of the day relented most of the night, and a tarp that covered the field until about 3 hours before kickoff. Scattered showers still kept the grass slightly slick. The surface never seemed to slow down the Bruins, who ran for 284 yards behind Johnathan Franklin's 194 yards on the ground. The most yards rushing Stanford allowed this season had been 198 in an overtime victory at Oregon two weeks ago. The Bruins made the final road block more difficult than expected. UCLA converted a pair of third downs before Franklin burst through the middle for a 51-yard touchdown. He carried safety Jordan Richards the final 5 yards into the end zone to give the Bruins a 7-0 lead on the game's opening drive. Stanford answered in a hurry when Hogan ran 14 yards on a readoption keeper to convert a long third down, fullback Ryan Hewitt bulldozed through the line on a fourth-and-1 and Stepfan Taylor took a short pass 33 yards inches shy of the goal line. On the next play, Hogan faked a handoff UCLABRUINS.COM

and rolled untouched for the tying touchdown. Taylor finished with 78 yards rushing to eclipse Darrin Nelson's school rushing record of 4,169. Taylor, an outgoing senior, has 4,212 for his career. Before the Cardinal offense even found their seats on the sideline, Hundley ran 48 yards and scrambled for a 5-yard TD to put UCLA back in front, 14-7. With the Bruins about to go ahead two scores, Ed Reynolds intercepted a pass and returned it 80 yards to set up Taylor's short TD run. Officials ruled that Reynolds, who ran three interceptions back for a touchdown this season, was tackled by Hundley short of the goal line and a replay challenge by Stanford coach David Shaw was inconclusive. Reynolds moved into a tie with Oregon State's Jordan Poyer for the Pac-12 lead with six interceptions. Williamson kicked a 37-yard field goal as the first half expired to give Stanford a 17-14 lead. Fairbairn answered with a field goal from 31 yards on UCLA's opening drive of the second half. Franklin capped a 12-play, 80-yard drive with a 20-yard TD run late in the third quarter. That gave the Bruins a 24-17 and put Stanford on the brink of its first home loss this season. Instead, the Cardinal came back in impressive fashion. Hogan heaved the long touchdown to Terrell on third down just over the cornerback's head. Terrell caught the pass in the short corner and pointed to the poncho-wearing crowd. Stanford stuffed UCLA three-and-out and Terrell returned the punt 18 yards to the Bruins 43. That set up Williamson's winning 36-yard field goal with 6:49 remaining. Stanford stopped UCLA again, and Hogan ran for 11 yards on thirdand-2 to help Stanford drain the clock some more before punting back to the Bruins one final time from their own 19 with 2:18 remaining. Tight end Joseph Fauria caught a pass over the middle on fourth-and-7 and lateraled the ball to Jordon James to complete a 17-yard pass. That helped set up Fairbairn's field goal, which never looked on target. UCLA was going for its first conference championship since 1998. Courtesy: AP

Broussard came to Arizona State after having served as the running backs and special teams coach at his alma mater, Washington State University, from 2007-2009. Prior to that, Broussard coached running backs and wide receivers at Portland State University from 2004 to 2006. Previously, he served as the offensive coordinator for Diamond Ranch High School in 2001, before being named head coach in 2002. He began his coaching career at Chino, CA Don Lugo High School as the offensive coordinator in 2000. Broussard was a standout player in both college and professional football. He was selected with the 20th pick in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons. Broussard rushed for 1,472 yards, caught 48 passes and scored 12 touchdowns in four seasons with Atlanta. He joined the Bengals in 1994. In 1995, Broussard became a Seattle Seahawk for his final four seasons in the NFL. Spending a total of nine years in the NFL, Broussard completed his career with 578 rushing attempts, 2,625 rushing yards, 126 receptions, 882 receiving yards and 22 combined rushing and receiving touchdowns. As a collegiate performer at Washington State, Broussard was named to the Pacific-10 Conference’s second-team as a running back following his sophomore season in which he led the Cougars in receiving with 59 catches for 701 yards with three touchdowns. During his junior year, he rushed for 1,280 yards, which ranked seventh nationally and first in the Pac-10. Broussard was only the second player in conference history to lead in receiving one year and rushing the next. Ranking first in the Pac-10 for all-purpose running his senior year, Broussard averaged 162.7 yards per contest. He finished second in rushing with 1,237 yards.

Adrian Klemm Offensive Line Hawai’i, Excelsior (2008) Former NFL lineman and three-time Super Bowl winner Adrian Klemm joined the Bruin staff in December of 2011 after coaching four seasons at SMU. In just a few short weeks in Westwood, he helped the Bruins secure one of the nation’s top recruiting classes and was recognized as the Pac-12 Recruiter of the Year by 24/7 Sports. He was also tabbed by Rivals.com as one of the nation’s Top 25 Recruiters. Klemm, who was a four-year starter at the University of Hawai’i, began volunteering with the SMU program in 2008 after spending seven seasons in the NFL and winning three Super Bowls (XXXVI, XXXVII, XXXIX) as a member of the New England Patriots. He made an immediate impact at SMU, quickly becoming one of the nation’s top recruiters and helping head coach June Jones produce his first 1,000-yard rusher. In 2011, SMU featured the nation’s seventh-leading rusher in Zach Line (122.4 yds per game). Two Mustang offensive linemen went on to be selected in the 2012 NFL Draft - Josh LeRibeus in the third round by the Redskins; Kelvin Beachum in the seventh round by the Steelers. On the field in 2010, Klemm tutored a young SMU line and guided Beachum to first-team All-Conference honors. He also led J.T. Brooks and Blake McJunkin to honorable mention All-Conference USA accolades. His line paved the way for an SMU offense which set school records in total offense, passing yards, passing TDs and first downs among others. Line finished the season with 1,494 yards rushing, the second-best single-season total in school history, trailing only Eric Dickerson’s 1982 effort. Following the 2010 campaign, Klemm was named the top non-BCS AQ

Following this success, Klemm was named SMU’s Recruiting Coordinator in the summer of 2011. In 2009, Klemm helped Beachum earn second-team all-conference honors. The line blocked for an offense that passed for a then-school record 3,666 yards and produced the first collegiate 1,000-yard rusher under coach Jones. Klemm was the 46th overall selection in the 2000 NFL Draft after a standout career at Hawai’i. He played under coach Jones during his senior season (1999), and was a part of the biggest turnaround in NCAA history, as Hawai’i improved from 0-12 to 9-4 and won a bowl game. Following the season, Klemm was selected as the starting left tackle at the Senior Bowl.

Demetrice Martin Secondary Michigan State, Excelsior (2006) Martin was named to the staff in December of 2011.

Mazzone began his career in 1980-81 as a graduate assistant coach at the University of New Mexico. A native of Raton, N.M., Mazzone played quarterback for the Lobos, leading the team in passing in 1976 and 1977.

Angus McClure Defensive Line/Director of Recruiting Sacramento State (1993) Angus McClure is in the midst of his 20th year coaching football and his sixth as a member of the Bruin staff. This season, he is directing the defensive line, having previously coached tight ends, offensive line and special teams since arriving in Westwood in 2007. Angus continues in his role as the Recruiting Coordinator. Over the past four years, McClure has led the recruiting effort which has resulted in Bruin classes being ranked among the nation’s top 20 each year. Last year, UCLA led the South Division of the Pac-12 in rushing and played in the inaugural Pac-12 Championship Game. Over his time as a Bruin coach, McClure has tutored a number of NFL players: Logan Paulsen (Washington Redskins), Matthew Slater (New England Patriots), Kai Forbath (Washington Redskins) and Christian Yount (Cleveland Browns). McClure came to UCLA after serving as the offensive line/run game coordinator at the University of Buffalo during the 2006 season. Buffalo scored more points (201) in conference games than any other member of the Mid-American Conference East Division. Running back James Starks (starter for the 2011 Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers) earned second-team All-MAC honors in 2006 and was an honorable mention Freshman All-American by The Sporting News. Offensive lineman Jamie Richard was drafted and became a starter for the Colts. McClure spent the 2004-05 seasons as an assistant on Bill Callahan’s staff at Nebraska. McClure assisted with the offensive line, coaching the tackles, as well as serving in several special teams roles. The Cornhuskers defeated Michigan in the 2005 Alamo Bowl. As a Husker coach, McClure tutored a number of NFL players: Matt Slauson (NY Jets), Lydon Murtha (Miami Dolphins), Chris Patrick (NY Giants), and Sam Koch (Baltimore Ravens). Prior to his stint at Nebraska, McClure played a major role in some recordbreaking offenses at Sacramento State University, where he was assistant head coach and offensive line coach from 1997-2003. During his tenure at Sacramento State, the Hornets set 52 NCAA Division I-AA, Big Sky Conference or school records. He coached 20 All-Big Sky conference honorees and had six of his players sign NFL contracts. One of McClure’s pupils, Lonie Paxton of the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos, went on to collect three Super Bowl rings. Another offensive lineman, Marco Cavka, was drafted by the Jets. In addition, five Sacramento State players earned All-American honors and four were chosen to participate in college all-star games. In his seven seasons at Sacramento State, the Hornets led the Big Sky in rushing four times (1998, 1999, 2000, 2002). 36

In 1996, McClure coached tight ends at the University of Nevada. He helped the Wolf Pack to the Big West title, a 9-3 record, and the Las Vegas Bowl championship. His tight ends produced a school record 13 touchdowns during the season. Nevada led Division I-A with 527.3 yards per game of total offense and topped the Big West Conference in both rushing and passing. Angus has served as a guest coach in several NFL camps over the years, including the Buffalo Bills (2007, 2006), San Francisco 49ers (2002, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1997, 1996), Seattle Seahawks (1998) and San Diego Chargers (1997). A graduate of Sacramento State, where he played football from 1987-91, McClure also served as a member of the faculty from 1997-2004. He was on the 1988 Hornet team that advanced to the NCAA Division II championship semifinals with an offense which averaged 486.0 yards per game. He began his coaching career at McClatchy High School in Sacramento as assistant head coach and defensive coordinator from 1992-95 while also coaching the offensive line and tight ends.

Lou Spanos Defensive Coordinator Tulsa (1994) Lou Spanos, who has worked for three NFL head coaches who have won a Super Bowl, was named UCLA’s defensive coordinator in January of 2012. He joined the Bruin staff after working as an NFL assistant coach for the last 17 years. Spanos also has labored alongside such notable NFL defensive coordinators as Dick LeBeau and Jim Haslett. In the 2011 and 2010 seasons, Spanos was the linebackers coach of the Washington Redskins. He served on the staff of head coach Mike Shanahan, who led the Denver Broncos to Super Bowl wins in 1997 and 1998. The Bruin coach was instrumental in helping Haslett, the new Redskins defensive coordiator, install the defensive system. Washington’s second-team All-Pro linebacker London Fletcher, who played in the 2010 Pro Bowl, led the NFL in tackles with 166 in the 2011 campaign and was added to that year’s Pro Bowl roster. Spanos also tutored linebackers Brain Orakpo, a Pro Bowler, and Ryan Kerrigan, the NFL Rookie of the Month for September 2011, in their transition to the new defense. The previous 15 seasons, Spanos was a defensive assistant with the Pittsburgh Steelers working under head coaches Bill Cowher and Mike Tomlin, each former NFL defensive coordinators, and winners of the Super Bowl (Cowher - 2005; Tomlin - 2009). While in Pittsburgh, he worked closely with the linebackers and the secondary. Spanos was one of only three assistants on staff to be with the team for its Super Bowl XXX (lost to Dallas), Super Bowl XL (win over Seattle) and Super Bowl XLIII (win over Arizona) appearances. During his long tenure with the Steelers, the defense ranked among the top 10 in the NFL 13 times, including four No. 1 rankings. Pittsburgh managed to win at least 10 games in 10 of those seasons. Spanos helped coach nine different Steeler linebackers who combined for 19 Pro Bowl appearances - Kevin Greene (2), Greg Lloyd (2), Chad Brown (1), Levon Kirkland (2), Jason Gildon (3), Kendrell Bell (1), Joey Porter (3), James Farrior (2) and James Harrison (3). Additionally, Harrison earned the Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2008, while Bell was the Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2001. Spanos originally joined the Steelers in 1994 as an intern in the scouting department before being promoted to a defensive assistant after one season. A 1994 graduate of Tulsa, Spanos was a four-year letterman and starter at center. The 1989 and 1991 Golden Hurricane squads played in bowl games. In 1991, Tulsa beat San Diego State in the Freedom Bowl to finish 10-2 on the year and was ranked 21st on the final Associated Press poll. After his playing career ended (1989-92), Spanos remained at Tulsa as a student assistant working with the linebackers.

He was a coaching intern with the Bruin program in 2011, before being elevated to a full-time position, as quarterbacks coach, for the UCLA bowl game. An outstanding quarterback at the University of Washington, Tuiasosopo became the first player in NCAA history to pass for over 300 yards (302) and run for 200 yards (207) in a 1999 game versus Stanford. He led the Huskies to the 2000 Pac-10 title and a trip to the 2001 Rose Bowl game. Washington defeated Purdue, 34-24, in the New Year’s Classic and Tuiasosopo was named the Rose Bowl Player of the Game. He finished eighth in the voting for the 2000 Heisman Trophy. Marques was also selected as the Pac-10 Conference’s Offensive Player of the Year and as the league’s first-team All-Conference quarterback. Tuiasosopo served as team captain of the Huskies for both his senior and junior seasons and started 27 games in his collegiate career. He finished his career with a Washington school record for total offense. In the course of his career at UW, he compiled 1,495 career rushing yards, 21 rushing touchdowns and passed for 5,879 yards and 33 touchdowns. Tuiasosopo was a second-team All-Pac-10 pick in his junior season and a multiple-year honorable mention all-conference academic team selection. In 1997, he became the first Washington true freshman to start a game at quarterback in a contest versus Oregon. Tuiasosopo went on to be selected in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders and played in the NFL for eight seasons. He spent seven seasons with the Raiders (2001-2006, 2008) and one with the New York Jets (2007). He appeared in 13 games with the Raiders over the years, while backing up Rich Gannon, Kerry Collins and Aaron Brooks.

He was on the staff of the Seattle Seahawks the previous two seasons as a special teams assistant. In 2010, Seahawks kicker Olindo Mare matched the league’s sixth-longest field goal streak with 30 straight successful attempts. The kickoff return units ranked third in the NFL and the kickoff cover group ranked fifth. A linebacker as a player, Ulbrich was drafted out of the University of Hawai’i by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round (86th pick overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft. He won a starting linebacker job with the 49ers in 2001 and was on the team for 10 seasons, playing for head coaches Steve Mariucci, Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan and Mike Singletary. In 2007, Ulbrich took a backup role to first-round pick Patrick Willis, and also had an impact on special teams.

Yarber joined the Bruin staff in January, 2012 after two seasons with the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In 2011, he worked as the wide receivers coach for a promising young unit that included the development of second-round pick Arrelious Benn and fourth-round pick Mike Williams. Under Yarber’s direction, Williams turned in one of the top seasons by a receiver in Buccaneer history, recording 65 receptions for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns. He led all rookie receivers in each of these categories, earning The Sporting News and PFW/PFWA All-Rookie Team selection while finishing second in voting for the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. Yarber also oversaw the emergence of Benn, who was becoming an important part of Tampa Bay’s offense prior to a season-ending knee injury in Week 13. Yarber came to Tampa Bay after spending three seasons (2007-09) on the collegiate level as the wide receivers coach at Arizona State. While at ASU in 2009, Yarber coached two standout wide receivers in Kyle Williams and Chris McGaha. Williams finished the 2009 campaign with 815 receiving yards on 57 catches and eight scores before being a sixth-round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers in the 2010 NFL Draft. McGaha racked up 56 catches for 673 yards and four touchdowns on his way to second-team All-Pac-10 honors. Prior to his work with the Sun Devils, Yarber coached wide receivers for two seasons (2005-06) under Tyrone Willingham at the University of Washington. During the 2003-04 seasons, Yarber coached the San Francisco 49ers’ wide receivers. From 1999-2002, Yarber coached at Oregon State, where he worked with the running backs for one season (1999) before switching to wide receivers (2000-2002). His work with receivers Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh led to the two being selected in the second and seventh rounds by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2001 NFL Draft. Yarber coached his first year in the NFL in 1998, working as an offensive quality control coach with the Seattle Seahawks. He spent the 1997 season coaching receivers at UNLV. His coaching career began in 1996 when he took a secondary coaching position at his alma mater, the University of Idaho. Yarber was selected by the Washington Redskins as a 12th-round pick in the 1986 NFL Draft and spent three seasons as a wide receiver and punt returner. He was part of the Washington squad that defeated the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XXII in 1988, leading that team with 37 punt returns. At Idaho, Yarber was a Kodak All-American and the Big Sky Conference’s Most Valuable Player during his senior year, catching 75 passes for 1,103 yards. As a junior, he finished 10th in the nation in punt returns and third in the conference with 817 receiving yards on 54 catches.

Sal Alosi Strength & Conditioning Coordinator Hofstra (2001) Sal Alosi, who has both collegiate and extensive NFL experience, was hired on Jan. 10, 2012 to be UCLA’s strength and conditioning coordinator for football. He came to the Bruins after serving as the head strength and conditioning coach at Bryant University, in Rhode Island, in 2011, where he worked with all 22 of the Bulldogs’ varsity programs. Alosi’s skill and knowledge in the weight room played a vital role in the development of the Bryant athletic department in its final year of transition to full Division I status. Prior to working at Bryant, Alosi spent nine years in the NFL, where he served as the head strength and conditioning coach for both the New York Jets and the Atlanta Falcons. A four-year letterwinner and linebacker at Hofstra University, Alosi led the Pride to back-to-back Division I-AA (now FCS) quarterfinal playoff appearances in 1999 and 2000 and topped the team in tackles as a senior. Following his playing career, he joined the coaching staff at his alma mater, becoming an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Hofstra in 2001, when the Pride won its first Atlantic 10 Conference title in football, advancing to the Division I-AA playoffs for the third straight year. 37

Eric Kendricks' play at UCLA is no joke Once the target of club comedians because of his wild hair, the sophomore linebacker leads the Pac-12 Conference with 112 tackles and has been one of the catalysts in the Bruins' turnabout. November 20, 2012 | By Chris Foster

UCLA defensive end Datone Jones remembers attending a show at a comedy club with teammate Eric Kendricks two years ago. It was hard to be inconspicuous. Kendricks and his wild jet-black hair — picture the image of a cartoon character who has stuck a finger in a light socket — became an easy target. "Every comedian picked on him," Jones said. "One guy called him 'High School Musical.' " Coach Jim Mora rolled his eyes at this, saying, "Did the guy know who Eric was? I mean, you might want to be careful doing that." Sure, Kendricks is good-natured and an easy mark for a one-liner with that electrical-storm hairdo. But best not to poke the bear, or rather the Bruin, too much. Kendricks, the product of a football family, hasn't been a barrel of laughs for UCLA opponents. Identifying a better linebacker in the Pac-12 Conference the last month would be difficult. USC learned that Saturday. Kendricks made 10 tackles, intercepted a pass and forced a fumble. In his spare time, he was rushed onto the field on fourth down and deflected a punt. The Bruins scored 14 points off plays by Kendricks in a 38-28 victory. "He makes plays all over the field," Mora said. Kendricks, a sophomore, has recovered three fumbles, returning two for touchdowns. He has one interception. He has blocked two punts. He also leads the Pac-12 with 112 tackles. The Bruins were dealt a potentially crippling blow when linebacker Patrick Larimore was forced to quit in August because of repeated concussions. Kendricks had big cleats to fill as a leader. "Patrick left a lot of slack for me to pick up," Kendricks said. "He did everything. "I had to make the calls, read the offense, all that. I wasn't ready for it at first." The on-the-job training has gone well. Kendricks had 17 tackles against Arizona State on Oct. 27, the start of a four-game span in which he has made 55 tackles. "He's an instinctive guy who can now play instinctively because he understands what to do now," Mora said. Nothing showed that better than the deflected punt against USC. Anthony Barr stumbled to the sideline and Kendricks, his backup on the punt return team, rushed onto the field. He got his hands on the kick, giving the Bruins a first down at the USC 33 in the third quarter. It led to a touchdown that gave UCLA a 31-20 lead. Kendricks set up UCLA's second touchdown by stripping receiver Marqise Lee of the football in the first quarter. "He's just a monster," Jones said. It's a family thing. Eric and Mychal Kendricks are 17 months apart and very much alike. Mychal Kendricks played four seasons at California and is a linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles. "We fought a lot," Eric Kendricks said. "We were competitive on everything. We'd make up games and then compete, like racing to the kitchen for dinner." More often than not, Eric Kendricks would lose. "But that didn't stop me from racing again," he said. "I think that's why we were ready to play football. We were already used to the competition." Instead of following his brother to Cal, Eric chose his father's school. Marvin Kendricks, a running back, was UCLA's leading rusher in 1970


and 1971. "We had this big, giant towel that was blue, gold and white and had a Bruin bear in the middle of it," Eric Kendricks said. "As a kid, I'd wrap myself in it after swimming. I wanted to go to this school." A routine elementary school assignment — what will you do in the future? — became prophetic. He answered the question about college with, "I'm going to get a football scholarship to UCLA." Said Kendricks: "I grew up hearing about Bruins pride. California was the right spot for Mychal. This was my dream school." The two brothers played against each other once. UCLA beat California last season. "We don't ever talk about it," Eric Kendricks sad. "But it was sweet." chris.foster@latimes.com twitter.com/cfosterlatimes

UCLA kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn seeks his own blue paradise By Miguel A. Melendez Special to the Daily News Posted: 10/03/2012 09:48:55 PM PDT Updated: 10/03/2012 10:19:56 PM PDT

His full name is John Christian Ka'iminoeauloameka'ikeokekumupa'a Fairbairn. UCLA fans know him as Ka'imi, the true freshman kicker. Fairbairn did without John Christian long ago. He's been Ka'imi since he was a kid, a name deeply rooted in Hawaiian culture with a powerful meaning: The seeker of wisdom, with knowledge and a firm foundation. "The meaning of your name is your life," Fairbairn said. "Hawaiians have a long ancestry. It's really meaningful for me to go by my Hawaiian name." When he left the main island of Oahu, Fairbairn knew it would take some adjusting to a new culture. It started with his name. "John Christian," Fairbairn said, "I don't really respond to that." The first day of school, Fairbairn had a little chat with his professors after class. Done. Next, food. "Everybody misses home once you come to college," Fairbairn said. "Food's a little different." A traditional Hawaiian dinner is hard to come by in Westwood, where you'll find a California Pizza Kitchen and an In-N-Out within walking distance. But nothing short of a plane ride will bring some Kalua pig, chicken and long rice with diced red and green onions. "My family makes a lot of that," Fairbairn said. Even fast food has a different kick on the Big Island. "We have a McDonald's," Fairbairn said. "But we have rice and Portuguese sausage in the breakfast meals. You probably don't know what that is." Advertisement

Fairbairn misses Hawaii. His eyes light up describing the picturesque scenes, bright blue water and fresh breeze. "It's beautiful," he says. But he left it all behind to pursue his dream of continuing UCLA's long tradition of exceptional kickers, from John Lee and Chris Sailer to Justin Medlock and Kai Forbath, all of whom helped UCLA become a premier destination for the nation's top high school kickers.


according to Sailer, who mentored him at his renowned kicking academy. Fairbairn was on the Chris Sailer Award Watch List, and the exposure from afar helped land offers from UCLA and California. There's no doubting Fairbairn's talent, but the California lifestyle and playing at a higher level took some getting used to. "College is a different level," Fairbairn said. "The adjustment is a big one." It didn't take long for UCLA coach Jim Mora to name Fairbairn the starting kicker. It's Mora's mantra that the best players will take the field, and Fairbairn was no exception, true freshman or otherwise. But Fairbairn struggled early. Three of his five extra points were blocked in the season opener against Rice, but he converted a 27-yard field goal. Against Nebraska, Fairbairn went 2 of 4, converting from 35 and 22 but missing from 36 and 34. Mora's confidence in Fairbairn never wavered, and he said as much after that game. Fairbairn went 3 for 3 against Houston, converting from 35, 23 and 33 yards. He went 2 of 3 against Oregon State, missing from 42. He went 0 for 1 against Colorado, missing from 44 yards. Fairbairn, who is a perfect 15 of 15 on extra points since the Rice game, hears the groans when he misses. It weighs heavy on his shoulders. But he continues running out there, his confidence never in doubt. He wants to prove he can be as clutch as his hero, NFL kicker Billy Cundiff. He wants the Bruins to believe they have a guaranteed three points when they need him, but more important he wants his teammates to know they can count on him. "When I miss I feel bad for my teammates," Fairbairn said. "I try to come back and make one for them." Fairbairn sees his teammates pouring sweat in the sweltering heat at practice. He watches from the end zone honing his craft. He watches his shadow and constantly reminds himself to follow through on his swinging motion and keep his eyes back. Just a few weeks ago he spent some time working out with Forbath after practice, soaking in the wisdom. It's The Seeker in him. With a solid foundation built around teammates, Fairbairn continues head on despite some struggles. "I just want to really work hard for my team," Fairbairn said. "My teammates work hard every day and I just try to show up every day for them. They have my back no matter what, and I thank them for that." Perhaps no other teammate plays a more instrumental role than Jeff Locke, the senior who dazzles with every hanging punt and brute strength behind every kickoff. It's no wonder, then, that Fairbairn sticks close by Locke. "He's been a big part of it," Fairbairn said. "He's a veteran. He knows what the game is so he's trying to pass that knowledge to me." Wisdom, knowledge and a firm foundation. For Ka'imi, it's a way of life.


In L.A., it's that other college team turning heads David Leon Moore, USA TODAY Sports

Brett Hundley arrived under previous coach Rick Neuheisel as the first 5-star quarterback recruit in UCLA's history, and Hundley has helped the Bruins to a 9-2 record in his redshirt freshman season. LOS ANGELES – On the other college football team in Los Angeles – that is to say, at UCLA – misconceptions are evaporating faster than the Bruins' cross-town rival's fall from the Top 25. Jim Mora was the unsmiling, tough-guy, cliché-spewing, failed NFL coach, except that... "There's this kid-like quality about him," says UCLA freshman quarterback Brett Hundley's mother, April. "I'm a really (Photo: Jayne Kamin-Oncea, US Presswire)

good judge of character and a person of spirit and I can just see in his face the joy that he feels when he talks about these kids. Brett tells me that Mora and (UCLA offensive coordinator Noel) Mazzone are like big kids, they keep him

laughing constantly." PICKS: Rivalry weekend drama (http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2012/09/27/weekly-college-football-picks/1567765/) MAILBAG: Submit your college football questions (http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon/2012/11/01/usa-today-sports-college-football-maibag /1673103/) Hundley was an untested freshman quarterback known primarily as a raw, dual-threat athlete with potential for throwing and running except that . . . "Yes, he's a dual-threat guy, but you know what? He's more of the conventional, pro-style, stand-in-the-pocket, survey-the-field, fire-it-down-the-fieldwith-accuracy-and-timing guy than people would imagine," Mora says. "He can run, but he doesn't have to depend on that to make plays. "And that stroke. He's just got a classic throwing motion. Bill Walsh, who I had tremendous respect for, would have loved Brett Hundley. His footwork. His mechanics. His accuracy.The way he studies the game. His mindset. His approach. He would have just loved him." Southern California – USC, that is -- was the place to be if you were going to be a college football star in L.A. except that . . . The city is still a little shocked at what happened last Saturday, when Hundley, in his first start in a USC-UCLA game, outplayed the so-called Greatest Trojan of Them All, senior record-setting quarterback Matt Barkley. The Bruins ended a five-game losing streak against the Trojans in a 38-28 victory that gave UCLA a 9-2 record, a No.16 ranking and a guaranteed spot in the Nov. 30 Pac-12 title game, no matter what happens in the Bruins' game Saturday against No. 11 Stanford. BIG WIN: UCLA knocks off USC (http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/pac12/2012/11/17/ucla-usc-pac-12-south-brett-hundley-lane-kiffin /1711641/) "Maybe he taught me a little too much," Hundley, laughing, says about the memory of Barkley, some years ago, teaching him how to properly throw a football at a camp run by quarterback guru Steve Clarkson in Santa Barbara when Hundley was just starting his high school career in Chandler, Ariz. If there is a theme to what led up to Saturday's massive role reversal in the Rose Bowl, it is found in a strong, trusting bond between Mora, 51, the rookie college head coach, the disciplinarian UCLA needed, and Hundley, 19, the rookie starter, the transcendent athlete UCLA craved. Hundley didn't come to UCLA to play for Mora. He was recruited by and signed by Rick Neuheisel, himself a former UCLA quarterback. It was a signing that was viewed as historic in Bruin circles – the first UCLA quarterback recruit to have earned a five-star prep rating – and possibly the turning point in Neuheisel's effort to end, as he famously put it, "the football monopoly in Los Angeles." But, last year, Neuheisel redshirted Hundley and another desultory season ended with a 50-0 loss to USC and Neuheisel's firing. MAILBAG: Submit your college football questions (http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon/2012/11/01/usa-today-sports-college-football-maibag /1673103/) Mora, not UCLA's first or second choice but an intriguing choice, was hired. One day in mid-December, as Mora made his way around the UCLA football facilities during the Bruins' preparations for the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, he met Hundley, and he remembers it well.


"What impressed me about him was his maturity, the way he looked me in the eye and shook my hand," Mora says. "He was very, very bright-eyed, and he seemed very smart. And his size. He looked like the right-sized guy." Six-foot-3. 223 pounds. Lean and strong. Mora had other options.Seniors Richard Brehaut and Kevin Prince had both gained considerable experience under Neuheisel. But Mora liked the look of Hundley. So, as he learned from his father, the longtime NFL coach with the same name, he put Hundley to the test. "In coaching, what you try to do is create problems for your players on the practice field that they have to solve. That's how they learn," Mora says. "So (in spring practice) we would purposely put Brett in some really difficult situations. Whether he responded immediately the way you want him to and had success or whether he didn't and he had a failure, he was able to learn from it, put it in the rear-view mirror and go on – without being rattled and without being too exuberant when he did something right. That was really impressive to me." Fast forward to last Saturday in the Rose Bowl. Hundley was put in a difficult situation – fourth quarter, USC had crept to within 31-28 – and he responded once again with poise. First down from his own 17-yard line? Boom, 18 yards to Shaq Evans, a gutsy call and brilliant execution. Thirdand-13 on the same drive, from the USC 47? A clutch 15 yard-dart to Joseph Fauria. The drive ended with a 29-yard touchdown run by Johnathan Franklin, good for a 10-point lead with 4:02 left. Game over. USC dynasty over. (The Trojans are 7-4, out of the polls, and facing No.1 Notre Dame Saturday without an injured Barkley.) UCLA legend born? Eleven games into his college career, Hundley has completed 69% of his passes for 2,973 yards, 25 touchdowns and nine interceptions. And he has run for 282 yards and eight touchdowns.

In his first season, UCLA football coach Jim Mora Jr. has led the Bruins to a 9-2 record, a berth in the Pac-12 championship game -- and a win over rival Southern California. (Photo: Andrew Fielding, US Presswire)

Mora really likes Hundley and he does actually smile when he talks about his talent, his work ethic, his humility, his willingness to put in extra time on the field and in the film room, the poise that allows him to continue to look downfield when the pocket is collapsing, the nimbleness of leg. And, then, there's that something you just can't teach . . . "I think," Mora says, "he's hungry to be great." Mora is willing to go as far as to say this: "It's a long journey, and I don't want to put any undue pressures on the kid at this point in his career. But I would say that if he continues to work hard and we can surround him with the right kind of players, and he can stay humble, I don't see any reason


he can't be regarded as one of the great quarterbacks to play here. I think he'll be talked about as a Heisman Trophy candidate very, very soon. He's on a path that's going to make him a very sought-after young man." Hundley's parents would add one more key ingredient: Mora staying put at UCLA. "Jim Mora has brought a whole different attitude," says Hundley's father, Brett Hundley Sr., who played football and ran track at Arizona and is now a health care executive. "You can sense it. You can feel it. Obviously, the proof is in the puddin'. They're all on the same ship, and it's quite a journey. "Brett really respects coach Mora. He's the type of coach who can really grab Brett's attention. You can tell he's really committed to this deal of bringing UCLA football back to prominence. I think their relationship is very, very close." Hundley's mother adds, "Brett has always aspired for so much, and that's the same way with coach Mora. Don't settle for mediocrity, and you'll achieve the things you want to. That's what I see happening. I think coach Mora has brought to the team what Brett had expressed to me his freshman year that he always wanted." Hundley spends more time with Mazzone, the offensive coordinator, than he does with Mora, who leans to the defensive side of things. But his Bond with Mora is undeniable. "Deep down inside, we have a strong connection on and off the field," Hundley says. "He has my back for anything and everything. I look at him as a role model, someone I can always look to and have him show me the way. He's leading this team and doing big and great things."

role? What things are important? What qualities should you have? How do you treat people? How do you treat players? How do you hold them accountable? "The importance of discipline and accountability and toughness and integrity and those things -those are the things my dad has always impressed upon me." This is classic Mora-speak. Discipline. Toughness. Accountability. Here's more classic Mora. Instead of holding training camp on UCLA's spectacularly scenic Westwood campus, as had been done in the past, Mora held camp in San Bernardino, an outpost 60 miles east of downtown Los Angeles that is miserably hot in August. Bear Bryant had his Junction Boys, the survivors of his merciless first training camp as the head coach at Texas A&M in the small and extraordinarily hot town of Junction, Texas.

Mora's San Bernardino Boys might someday be thought of similarly. In August, the Bruins were hot and sore, dog-tired, occasionally irritable, sometimes miserable. Now, they say, they are toughened, mentally and physically, and closer to one another than they have ever been. "It was hot every day, and there was never a practice or a moment in practice that wasn't hard," junior defensive end Cassius Marsh says. "It brought everybody closer together. It got to 110 degrees, I think. Guys got overheated a couple of times. It got guys to push through the mental barriers and just work as hard as they can for as long as they can.

yards in the the first three games, says words can't adequately describe the camp. "It was a grind, day in and day out -- one of the hardest, toughest camps I've ever been through," he says. "You had to be mentally and physically ready each day from the time you woke up till the time you went to sleep. There were no distractions. It was just team. We were able to get a lot closer." This all makes sense on a team coached by Mora. It is, after all, the human connections of the game that drew him to consider a future in college football. Heading to college After getting fired by the Seahawks following the 2009 season, he was invited by University of Washington coach Steve Sarkisian to spend time around the Huskies during the 2010 season. "It's limited, what I could do because of NCAA rules, but I could come to practice, stay on the sideline, go to meetings, basically be a fly on the wall," Mora says. Then in March 2011, Mora, an avid skier, blew out a knee during a ski trip. This time, Scott Woodward, Washington's athletics director, invited him to do his rehab with the Huskies training staff. "So basically I spent the next six months, three hours a day, five days a week, with their training staff," Mora says. "I got to spend an amazing amount of time not just with the football players, but with all the athletes. "And it was just really cool being around them. They'd come up to me and talk to me about things, about life." Mora ended up getting particularly close to Washington linebacker Cort Dennison. "We were constantly communicating," he says. "He was asking me for advice. It made me feel, like, relevant in someone's life, beside my own family's. It was like maybe I had something to offer these kids, that maybe they would listen to me." He loved the thought of that. Then he started studying up on the college game. Then he started to think who he might hire as his staff if he could get some college program interested in hiring him. It turns out UCLA, after first turning in a couple of other directions unsuccessfully -- Chris Petersen of Boise State and Al Golden of Miami (Fla.) -- wanted Mora. And it turns out Mora does have something to offer, that these kids will listen. "He's already done a lot for me as a player and as a man," says Marsh, the defensive end. "He's a great coach and a great mentor." Senior safety Dalton Hilliard says Mora invited him to his office to watch tapes of former LSU and NFL running back Dalton Hilliard (no relation) playing for Mora's dad's Saints. "I thought that was really neat," Hilliard says. "He just seems like a really good guy, a players' coach. I can really relate to him. I can talk to him about anything." Hilliard and the others love that Mora was an NFL coach, a feeling, to be sure, that USC players had when Carroll arrived. Mora, like Carroll, wants them to get to the NFL if that's what they want and if they're good enough. But it's telling that Mora seems more excited talking about what kind of person Franklin aspires to be than about his elusiveness and speed and more excited talking about Hundley's leadership than about his touch on the deep ball. Carroll lasted nine years at USC and then went back to the NFL and replaced, yep, Mora as the Seahawks coach. Can Mora replace Carroll as the football king of Los Angeles? "It would be great to have that kind of success," Mora says. So far, pretty good, especially compared to Carroll, whose first Southern California team started 1-4 and finished 6-6. At 3-0, Mora says he's going to do what his father has always advised him to do. You could call this the Jim Mora playbook on football and life: "Just keep your head down and keep working. Keep being demanding. Keep the team on track. Keep focused on the next task."

Whicker: Hundley earning his quarterback stripes Tweet

 VIEW ALL SPECIAL SECTIONS ADVERTISEMENT

By MARK WHICKER COLUMNIST / THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER TEMPE, Ariz. – Brett Hundley is in the midst of quarterbacking immersion. Noel Mazzone, his UCLA offensive coordinator, knows that everyone sinks if Hundley fails. "I've been pretty hard on him, the first six games," Mazzone said Saturday, after all the yards had been calculated, after Hundley had saddled up the Bruins behind their junior lifeguards on the line, after Ka'imi Fairbairn had trotted on with the knowledge that he probably had only more big field goal to miss. "You know how goofy coaches are. We were walking out to practice on Tuesday, I believe, and I said, 'Brett, I've decided. You're finally our quarterback now. You're a quarterback.'" Very few of the species have been seen on the west side of Los Angeles since Drew Olson. UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley directed the Bruins' winning fourth-quarter drive on the road against Arizona State on Saturday. MATT YORK, AP

With 1:33 left and with two timeouts remaining, UCLA got the ball on the 20-yard line and needed a field goal to beat Arizona State. This, after leading, 42-33, with 9:01 left.

This, after scrambling back from a 14-0 deficit early in the first quarter. ADVERTISEMENT

Now Hundley had to get it done in real time and speed, against a defense that ranked fourth nationally in pass efficiency. And, with :04 left, Fairbairn came on for the 33-yarder that won it, 45-43, raising UCLA to 6-2 overall - yes, bowl eligibility - and 3-2 in the Pac-12. Far more than that, the Bruins won a critical conference road game for perhaps the first time since Olson's Bruins went 10-2 in 2007. And they finally got to a bridge that threatened to separate their season, and they crossed it. Rick Neuheisel's teams never could do that. In 2011 they lost, 48-12, at Arizona when they were 3-3. In 2010 they lost at Cal, 35-7, when they were 3-2.

This loss would have evaporated UCLA's hopes of winning the South Division but it also would have deepened the déja blue that has infested this program. So many identities were at stake. Johnathan Franklin, ex-fumbler, was entrusted with the carries to set up Fairbairn, who had missed four field-goal attempts this year under 45 yards. And Hundley had thrown four picks at Cal.

"With all the great ones, they make plays when the plays are not there to be made," Mazzone said. "The good ones will get first downs for me when I call the worst play possible. "He wasn't a deer in the highlights today. He would scramble and make plays when he had to, or he saw something before the snap that told him what to do. He's still young, you know." He's not alone. Hundley is a redshirt freshman. His center, Jake Brendel, is also a redshirt freshman. So is tackle Torian White, who was filling in for true freshman Simon Goines. Devin Fuller, a high school quarterback a year ago, caught a TD pass. Another redshirt freshman, Steven Manfro, caught a pass for a first down on the big drive, as did Shaq Evans and Damien Thigpen. "Maybe it goes back to when me and my dad used to throw the ball around, in crazy situations," Hundley said. "It's like backyard football, but football's football at the end of the day." The backyard is not far away, in Chandler, where Brett Sr. is an assistant coach at the high school. When Brett was a junior he was beaten out for the QB job. Then Chandler fell behind Centennial of Peoria by 28 points and Brett took over. He threw for three scores in the second half and hit 14 of 18 passes, although Chandler still lost. "The worst thing you can do is start to rush things," Hundley said. "I've got faith in my receivers and the guys up front. It comes down to being relaxed and having the trust factor." It showed on his first play of the second half. Hundley slid expertly to dodge one rusher, then put up a flying pillow of a pass for Thigpen, who ran under it and made it into a 65-yard touchdown. In that moment Hundley was both master and commander.

"That play made it look like he'd been actually been coached," Mazzone said, jokingly. The head coach, Jim Mora, knows how much polishing awaits him. But a game like this shows resilience and purpose, for the first time in a long time. Maybe it goes back to those hellish August workouts in San Bernardino. Where it leads is anybody's guess. "Brett is doing a much better job of keeping his eyes up the field when there's pressure," Mora said. "He still will look at the rush at times, but he's getting his eyes back up sooner. Now, he has to learn to throw it away, not take the sack. That's the next step for Brett." The steps get steeper, but at least there's a path. Contact the writer: mwhicker@ocregister.com.

Former Compton High standout makes most of opportunity and embraces being a role model. By Miguel A. Melendez, Correspondent Inside SOCAL Posted:

DailyNews.com

The distance between Compton High and UCLA is 23 miles. For senior Datone Jones, it may as well have been worlds apart. Jones grew up in a world where making eye contact with the wrong person can get you killed, a world where wearing the wrong color can put your life in danger. Jones is from Los Angeles and grew up in gang-ravaged Compton, a place where walking the streets at night was about as safe as walking through a minefield. Jones came to UCLA in 2008. It was a different part of Los Angeles he learned to get used to, and the 6-foot-4, 275-pound defensive end has grown to appreciate UCLA's pristine campus. The differences are subtle - from neatly manicured lawns to functioning sprinklers - but for Jones it accentuated a microcosm in which he had to learn to grow up fast. Jones was raised by his mother Shondra Hall. He has an older brother and four sisters, all of whom were kept on a tight leash. That meant no parties, and for Jones it meant going nowhere without his brother, who is six years older. "My mom's a real tough lady," Jones said. "She never let me go to parties, but I'm happy she stopped me because she knew. I commend her a lot for that because I could have been caught up in a real tough situation." Shondra understood the heavy influences surrounding Jones. Even more, she knew the dangers. "The first time I ever saw someone lose their life I was 11," Jones recalled. It was the day after the Fourth of July. Jones was in his apartment playing games with his siblings. Fireworks went off in the distance, nothing new in a neighborhood that was known for setting off fireworks months before Independence Day. But this night was different. "We heard everybody screaming," Jones said.


"Right in front of my apartment building, someone gets shot like 13 times," Jones said. "Two people got shot but the other guy survived. "When you see someone lose their life, it's not like how you see it in the movies," Jones said. "I've seen all of that. I'm pretty numb to it now, but a kid should never have to see that." Most kids spent their early years trying to master skills like how to ride a bike. Jones spent his learning how to survive. "We didn't have that safety growing up," Jones said. "I felt that made a lot of people in my area grow up fast. We had to learn by the streets pretty fast." But in the streets there's no such thing as two-lane roads. You either make it out or stay behind. "It's been like that my whole life," Jones said. "We have a group of friends, and they go one way and others go another way. I had friends who were killed or are in jail now." Jones had six Division I offers by the end of his junior year, UCLA among them. He committed not long after visiting the Westwood campus. It's where he belonged. It was his ticket out of Compton, and his mother agreed. "I didn't commit," Jones said. "We committed. This is where I had to go by myself, but ultimately we all committed together because when one of us makes it we all make it." Jones was signed, sealed and delivered, ready to make a name for himself along with cornerback Aaron Hester, who attended nearby Dominguez High. But two weeks before leaving for UCLA, Jones relived a childhood memory he has been unable to repress. It was his senior year and he was heading home after the CIF State Track and Field Championships. He was walking home decked in Compton High gear. "I remember coming home there were a bunch of guys banging close to my apartment building," Jones recalled. "They were staring me down, and it got scary. The street got dark because the street lights weren't working. I walked fast to get to my apartment." Just when Jones thought he was safe, chaos ensued. "As soon as I close the front door to my house, shots rang out," Jones said. "I open my front door and somebody laid down in the front yard on the ground." Shondra frantically called her eldest son. But no answer. "We see a guy in the front yard laid down, but with the street lights you can't see who is on the ground," Jones said. "I'm scared, but I run out to the front because I'm thinking that's my older brother. "I got to the front and I flipped the guy over. His body was shot up. It wasn't my brother." Jones and others had rushed out to help, but with the car circling back they were left with no choice but to rush back into their homes. "I guess to finish whatever they started because they saw people looking," Jones said. "I called my brother and he wasn't answering. It tripped me out because I thought it was my brother. I wanted to help the guy laid down, but we had to run." Jones knows he escaped a rough life, which is why he's making the most of his opportunity at UCLA. He's off to a roaring start. If he makes it to the NFL some day, he wants to continue mentoring kids, something he has done every chance he gets. But he knows that walking the walk will have a greater impact. "I'm a role model to my entire community in Compton," Jones said. "I know that my name is still running through the city, and it motivates me to work harder and graduate, so when people pick up the newspaper they see I got my degree from UCLA." Bring on the world.


This season will cap Jeff Locke's UCLA career The punter and kickoff specialist has skills that could take him to the NFL or the world of high finance. But about that headwear... By Chris Foster 6:56 PM PDT, August 21, 2012 Jeff Locke's roommates are not entirely fond of the baseballstyle cap that the UCLA punter insists on wearing.

a d ve rt i se m e n t

"Disgusting," is the way Bruins quarterback Kevin Prince describes it. "I refuse to touch it," says long snapper Kevin McDermott. Locke couldn't care less what his buddies think. "All's fair in friendship," he says with a smirk. The cap — a UCLA model, white with a powder blue brim — means a lot to Locke. Somewhere under the grime are dozens of signatures, scribbled by UCLA players as a prank orchestrated by Prince in 2009. Over time, the cap has morphed into a symbol of his growth. Besides marking his time at UCLA, it reminds Locke of those boys-will-be-boys moments that made him less awkward. "There are maybe five guys on the cap who are left from that team," Locke says. "This cap has seen a lot. I think I have matured a lot since then." Locke came to UCLA as a painfully shy kid from Arizona who had worked to overcome a speech impediment. He will leave after this season having become a team leader and one of the top punters in the nation. He graduated in the spring with a 3.885 grade-point average and was named UCLA's male scholar-athlete of the year. Ahead are paths leading to the NFL or into high finance. He even jokes about becoming Senator Locke. First, he has one more season as the guy in the disgusting cap. Locke the kicker means a lot to a UCLA team in transition. He averaged 44.6 yards a punt the last three seasons, and his kickoffs are deep and accurate. In a pinch, he has even nailed a couple of long field goals. "It's a huge sense of relief to have a kicker like Jeff," first-year Coach Jim Mora said.


Locke the team leader means as much to the Bruins off the field. For example, he put what he learned as an economics major to use during the spring, calling a team meeting to offer advice on handling scholarship money. "When Jeff calls a meeting, people show up," McDermott says. Locke has come a long way since arriving in Westwood in 2008 looking as if he'd stepped out of the 1970s. All that was missing was an eight-track tape under his arm. "He had a bowl haircut. He was wearing jeans shorts, looking kind of nerdy," Prince recalls. "He said, 'Hi, we're roommates.' I was like, 'Oh boy, I'm with the punter.' " Locke was born on a military base in Germany but was reared in Arizona. He was a soccer player who was persuaded to kick for the freshman football team at Glendale Mountain Ridge High. The first football game Locke saw was the first one he played in, but he was promoted to the varsity two days later. "I was killing the ball," he says. "That was kind of a wake-up call." Although he excelled on the field and in the classroom, he was withdrawn socially because of a lisp that made him self-conscious. "I used to tell everyone that I was from Germany so they would think it was just a German accent," Locke says. "That went over great until one of the seniors on my high school team met my brother, who had no accent. That debunked that myth." As a freshman, Prince went to work on Locke. McDermott joined in a year later. The three have an off-campus apartment that has a fun-house feel. There are mornings when Prince has banged pots and pans to roust Locke from a deep sleep. Locke tries to answer prank-for-prank but says, "the trouble with Prince is he is always willing to escalate." The cap incident, though, couldn't be ignored. "That thing started looking pretty nasty," Prince recalls. "I thought if I had the guys sign it, he wouldn't wear it. He got pretty mad."


With support from his parents, UCLA safety Dalton Hilliard making a name for himself By Miguel A. Melendez, Special to the Daily News Posted: 10/10/2012 10:10:54 PM PDT Dalton Hilliard is sticking with his father Larry's story. He was named after the former New Orleans Saints star running back, and that's that. Hilliard's mother Amalia, however, recalls another story. "I was very pregnant and I was down to two names," Amalia said. "I remember I was watching the movie `Road House.' Patrick Swayze played this tough, no-nonsense guy who kicks butt." The character Swayze played is James Dalton, a smooth yet intimidating bouncer who wreaks of charm and swag. "I chose Dalton because of that," Amelia said. It turns out Hilliard is a perfect blend of both versions. He's a Swiss Army knife. A five-tool player with the kind of versatility on which UCLA coach Jim Mora is capitalizing. Hilliard, a senior, came to UCLA as a running back, switched to safety, and now plays inside linebacker. He's more than embraced the move, he's thrived playing important downs on defense whether the Bruins are in their nickel, dime or base package. Hilliard can play virtually anywhere. He can blitz. He can drop into coverage, and he's become a solid run defender. Yes, he's kicking butt. "I know this term gets thrown around a lot, but he's a football player," UCLA linebackers coach Jeff Ulbrich said. "For a guy who has played his entire life in the secondary and offensively in the backfield, he's done an amazing job picking it up." Hilliard comes from a long lineage of family members who played football. It's why he's often confused as the son of the former New Orleans Saints running back. "All the time," Hilliard said.


In reality, that Hilliard is a distant relative. Like a third uncle. "I have a long list of family members that I've never met who played football," Hilliard said. But the ones who made an immediate and long-lasting impact were closer to home. His father, a major in the U.S. Marine Corps, was a star safety at Eastern New Mexico who earned tryouts with the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants before blowing out every ligament in his knee. But the fact he didn't make it to the pros didn't change the way Hilliard viewed his father. "He was a baller," he said. "I've seen tape of him just killing guys coming downhill and juking guys when he was on offense." Hilliard's father played running back, wide receiver and defensive back in high school. Hilliard followed in his father's steps, playing the same positions at Punahou High in Hawaii. He also wore No. 4, the same number his father donned in college. "He was one heck of a player," Hilliard said. "He's my inspiration." Hilliard holds his mother in high regard, too. She's an executive at an engineering firm, but she also played professional football with the New York Sharks of the Women's Professional Football League. "The running joke in my family is I'm the only professional player," Amalia said via phone from Seoul, South Korea. "I'm hoping and praying that my son gets to break that tradition." Hilliard remembers growing up watching his mother at practice while tossing the football with his brother, and he grew to respect the women who played such a beautiful but brutal sport. "He saw that they can do anything that they want to be," Amalia said. "It's not powder puff. These are women are out there in pads." And Hilliard found his own way of paying homage to his mother. "In high school I wore her game pads," said Hilliard, who had a career-high three tackles for a loss at Colorado. "Her pads were kind of small. So I said, `I'll go ahead and use these ones because the smaller the pads the faster you run."' Larry was versatile in high school. And Amalia was no different, playing tight end, linebacker and some nose tackle. "When we lived in New York," Hilliard recalls, "Hofstra (University) was about a mile away from my house where they practiced. Most people can't say their mom, of all people, played professional football. She's one heck of a woman." Amalia was discovered during a clinic held by the New York Jets for women who wanted to learn more about the sport. Amalia played quarterback and receiver during seven-on-seven drills. The owner of the New York Sharks was there and approached her about playing. Amalia, a full-time accounting manager at the time, was 32 when she joined the team. Dalton was in the fourth grade and younger brother Kamdon was in first grade. Paige was a newborn still in a stroller. After work, Amalia attended two-hour practices and played games on the weekend. It was by chance that Amalia was able to join. The Hilliards spent time in Illinois, California, Virginia and North Carolina before moving to New York following Larry's work with the Marines. The Hilliards were in New York when the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center happened. The Sharks, who played only 10 miles from Ground Zero, postponed their games, but Larry went to work. He was stationed in New York as a company commander training Marine reservists. After 9/11, the military activated the reservists and Larry led the charge supporting communications through Satellite radio. The Sharks' season resumed nearly a month later. Amalia's season was cut short when she suffered a torn MCL in Arizona. The Hilliards eventually moved to Hawaii, where they live to this day. Larry retired after serving two decades in the Marines. "He's living the dream," Hilliard said. And maybe he can say the same when his time ends at UCLA and just maybe continues in the NFL. He's not thinking ahead, as UCLA is in the middle of what could be a promising season. But his versatility will only help his chances. "I love the fact I can play so many positions on this team and coaches trusting me to learn the playbook at those positions," Hilliard said. "It's really something that I'm enjoying." There's no debating now. Hilliard's all football. And swag.


Walker's path to UCLA had some sharp turns By JANIS CARR / THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Temptation roamed the streets and violence lived nearby, the kind of neighbors that scared Patricia Jones. The single mother of three young boys was determined to keep her sons away from the drugs and gang life that inhabited Richmond and steer them clear of a self-destructive path that had claimed so many young lives. UCLA wide receiver Kenneth Walker III cools down on the bench during Saturday's game against Oregon State. Walker says he has lused football to help control his anger. It wasn't easy, especially when her youngest, Kenneth Walker III seemed drawn in that direction. He repeatedly got into fights, acted out in school and began to hang with guys his mother didn't approve. What was the single, working mother supposed to do? She was estranged from Walker's father, who lived 45 miles away, and only had her own mother for help. The athletic teen and fast runner didn't make it easy on his mother. Walker was an angry child, harboring a rage fueled by his parents' separation, their constant bickering and parental tug-of-war. For him, the streets seemed to offer a simpler lifestyle, without family drama and arguments. Walker, currently a promising freshman receiver at UCLA, might have stepped off that curb had it not been for the ironic twist that brought his parents back together, his interest in poetry and football. "I was kind of a bad child and there was a lot of easy stuff to get into and I found a way to get into it, like fights and stuff. I had a lot of anger problems," Walker said. Initially, Walker used poetry to express his anger, writing lengthy odes to no one. When writing didn't alleviate his rage, he took to running track. Winning three Junior Olympic titles in the hurdles, though, didn't completely quell that deep-down resentment. "It worked for a while, but then I ended up getting back into it, being angry with myself," said Walker, who no longer writes poetry. Football would be the answer. Walker could channel his anger onto the football field, a grassy patch where he could take out his frustration with every tackle, every hit. "That kind of helped because it's a much more aggressive sport," Walker said. Despite her discipline, love and protection, Jones said she needed help if Walker was going to stay out of trouble, improve his grades and reach his potential as a football player. So when Walker was 12, she sent him to live with his father, who had married another woman and fathered two other children in Oakley, a planned community that prides itself on strong family values and a high quality of life. In Oakley, Walker not only learned to adapt to a different lifestyle, but developed into a top-rated high school football player and a standout student. Without the negative influences of his previous neighborhood, Kenneth Walker III eventually was headed on a path to college, a road that led him to UCLA this season. Walker is one of three freshman receivers Coach Jim Mora is counting on in the future. Mora called Walker elusive, someone who "runs good routes for a young player." The 6-foot, 175-pound receiver has seen limited action in the Bruins' first four games, having caught two passes for 39 yards, including a 33-yarder. He also has carried the ball twice and nearly scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter against Houston, but was stopped on the 1-yard line. Walker calls moving to Oakley, located east of Antioch, a game-changer. "The biggest difference was not having to look behind my back all the time when I walked down the street," Walker said, "and not worrying about getting into trouble." The change in environment not only helped Walker become one of the Bay Area's top receivers, he stayed out of trouble thanks in large part to his dad's heavy-handed discipline. His dad required him to come home right after school, do his homework, keep up his grades and call whenever he went out with friends. "I knew I could handle him," his father Kenneth Walker Jr. said. "It would take some time, but I knew I could handle him." Said the younger Walker: "At first, I was mad (at my mom for moving me) because I didn't really like my dad. We used to get into a lot of arguments and I used to get into a lot of trouble. I was a lot a lot like my dad growing up and he kept telling me that don't go that route because I was too much like him."


And that scared Kenneth Walker Jr. At 17, he was sentenced to 12 years in a New Orleans prison for armed robbery and served six years and given six years probation. While behind bars, Walker Jr. vowed to keep his kids from the same fate. "That's why I was so hard on Kenneth. I didn't want him to make the same mistakes I did," Walker Jr. said. "I could never give up on my son. I'm a father and I can't give up on him or any of my kids." After his sophomore season at Freedom High in Oakley, where his father served as an assistant football coach, Walker's world was thrown into turmoil and again he was packing his bags. In a strange twist, his father divorced, and he and Walker moved back to Richmond. Back in with his mother. Back to the old neighborhood. But Walker had changed. The streets no longer tempted him and he continued to progress on the football field, track and classroom. Plus, his parents were back together. "My time at Freedom High (in Oakley) changed me, so I wasn't really into all that gang-bangin' any more," Walker said. "I realized the kinds of opportunities I had at Freedom ... and that gave me a different perspective. Now, I think before I act, which is what my dad used to tell me. "There was a lot of stuff I was so close to getting into back then that I could just turn down when I went back. It's crazy how much stuff you can get into." With his parents back together, Walker's life was calmer and he was able to keep his focus on landing a football scholarship. As a junior at Richmond's Kennedy High, he garnered interest from six Pac-12 schools, but had decided to commit to Cal. But after participating in Nike's The Opening camp and B2G Elite Camp at UCLA, he decided to join the Bruins. "Now it takes a lot to tick me off. Now I just try to hold it in and when I play football, I leave everything out there." Contact the writer: jcarr@ocregister.com
