UCLA quarterback Richard Brehaut quickly came up with three benefits in getting to handle the first-team offense while starter Kevin Prince rests his injured right shoulder. "Reps, reps, reps," said Brehaut, a freshman. "All these extra practices, where I get to run the first team, are going to help me and get me ready for spring practice." It has given Brehaut a chance to put a positive finish on a rocky season, even if Prince heals in time to play against Temple on Dec. 29. "The more snaps he gets, the more he seems comfortable," Coach Rick Neuheisel said.

UCLA's EagleBank Bowl game preparations were interrupted Tuesday . . . by the players. The Bruins resurrected the most visible of UCLA football traditions after finishing stretching exercises. Coach Rick Neuheisel called his team into a huddle, exhorted them by barking, "Let's have a great effort today!" then watched as the players bolted over the practice field wall and took off, ending practice. The tradition is known as "Wall Day," an event Neuheisel thought he had ended last spring.

Matt Barkley engineered a game-winning drive at Ohio State early in the season, but the freshman could not muster similar magic in Saturday's 21-17 loss to Arizona in the regular-season finale at the Coliseum. When USC got the ball with just over three minutes left, Coach Pete Carroll said he told Barkley, "This is a great opportunity. I can't wait to watch you do it." Barkley, however, was sacked on first down and three passes fell incomplete. After Arizona turned the ball over on downs, the Trojans had one final opportunity with three seconds left.

USC fans at the Coliseum felt it during the game. Trojans players said it as they walked off the field. And Coach Pete Carroll drove the point home when he faced the media after the No. 20 Trojans' regular season-ending 21-17 defeat by Arizona on Saturday. "It's just a different feeling this year," Carroll lamented. Is it ever. A USC program that won at least 11 games in each of the previous seven seasons will not reach 10 in 2009. Arizona made sure of that when quarterback Nick Foles threw a fourth-quarter touchdown pass to receiver Juron Criner, and the Wildcats defense snuffed out Matt Barkley's opportunity for a heroic turn before a crowd of 83,753.

The player most worthy of winning the Heisman Trophy? That would be Toby Gerhart of Stanford. The player who will win the Heisman? That's a lot tougher call. Only one of the three other players who could win it had a star-quality game Saturday. Mark Ingram of Alabama rushed for 113 yards and three touchdowns in 28 carries as the Crimson Tide routed top-ranked Florida. Meanwhile, Florida's Tim Tebow , even with 247 yards passing and 63 yards running, could put only 13 points on the board.
