COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : UCLA

McNown Reaching Target

September 18, 1997|JIM HODGES

The goal was 60%, and he has even improved on that.

Through three games, UCLA quarterback Cade McNown has completed 61% of his 100 passes for 859 yards and seven touchdowns, with only two interceptions.

It's better than the 52.4% completion rate of a season ago.

"That's due to a lot of things, including me not having to throw away a lot of balls, getting better protection and guys holding on to the balls," McNown said.

Backup free safety Glenn Thompson, who has started the last two games for injured Shaun Williams, is wearing a splint on his lower left leg to protect a sprained foot and was held out of Wednesday's practice.
