COLLEGE FOOTBALL / DAILY REPORT : UCLA

1993 Replay Would Be Good

September 29, 1997|JIM HODGES

Part of the pregame preparation for Saturday's 40-27 victory over Arizona involved some UCLA players watching videotape of the Bruins' last Rose Bowl team, the 1993 edition.

Similarities are becoming evident.

"They lost their first two games, to Cal and Nebraska," safety Shaun Williams said. "And they got a lot of turnovers."

The Bruins lost to California, 27-25, and to Nebraska, 14-13, that season before winning seven games in a row and eight of their last nine.

This season UCLA lost to Washington State, 37-34, and Tennessee, 30-24, before a feeding frenzy at Texas, 66-3, and winning Saturday.

With 266 yards passing against Arizona, quarterback Cade McNown passed Tommy Maddox to become second in total offense at UCLA. McNown has 5,569 yards total offense, and leader Tom Ramsey has 6,255.
