The hardest week of the season -- so far -- is behind UCLA.
The Bruins are days from their season opener against Nevada.
“It’s easier this week,” Coach Jim Mora said. “You’re actually focused on an opponent.”
Last week was difficult.
“The game is still on the horizon, it hasn’t arrived yet,” Mora said. “They’re tired after two weeks of training camp.”
Running back Jordon James said those “were definitely the dog days of camp.”
This week, James said, “everyone is fired up. We’ve been in camp almost four weeks. Everyone is dying to get back on the field to play another team.”
