UCLA faces a Houston team run by another cookie-cutter quarterback from Southlake (Texas) Carroll High School.
David Piland replaced Case Keenum as the Cougars' quarterback this season. He completed 53 of 77 passes for 580 yards and four touchdowns in a 56-49 loss to Louisiana Tech last week.
Piland , a sophomore, led Carroll to an 11-2 record in 2009. He was another in a line of successful Carroll quarterbacks.
Chase Daniel (Missouri) and Greg McElroy (Alabama) are two former Dragons who went on to illustrious college careers. Kenny Hill, Carroll’s current quarterback, has committed to Texas A&M.
