Heading into last season, UCLA's defensive line was considered one of its strengths.
Heading out of it, that unit was a clear weakness.
Offenses ran roughshod over UCLA's front line and ultimately torched the Bruins for 190.6 rushing yards a game. UCLA surrendered more than 200 rushing yards in seven games, including in the Pac-12 championship, when Oregon ran for 352 yards and rolled the Bruins, 49-31.
In the end, UCLA's rushing defense ranked 96th out of 120 Football Bowl Subdivision teams and next to last in the Pac-12 Conference.
"That's not acceptable in our defense this year," defensive lineman Cassius Marsh said Tuesday. "If they're running the ball on us, we'll make adjustments and that won't happen. Our coaches aren't going to let that happen and players aren't going to let that happen."
