When the UCLA Bruins opened the season 10 days ago against Oklahoma State, it took only two carries for Manuel White Jr. to prove there were no aftereffects from a freak shoulder injury that made him sit out the final five games last season. On his first carry against the Cowboys, he sprinted around the left end for nine yards. On the second, after a collision with defenders at the line of scrimmage, he ran for eight yards with several of them clinging to his waist and shoulders.
