After being embarrassed four days earlier, UCLA's defense gained a bit of retribution Wednesday night during a scrimmage at Spaulding Field that ended two-a-day practice sessions. That retribution came in the form of hits put on receivers and ballcarriers by Bruin defensive backs, perhaps best exemplified when Donovan Gallatin hit Skip Hicks so hard on a sweep that the ball bounced into the hands of cornerback Teddy Lawrence, who returned it 50 yards for a touchdown.

The key to beating Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl might well be UCLA's passing game. The Bruins generally seek a balance between running and passing, averaging 181.1 rushing yards and 191.8 passing yards, but Wisconsin has been more vulnerable through the air. The Badgers ranked eighth in the Big Ten in pass defense and opposition quarterbacks completed 60.3% of their passes. Wisconsin plays an attacking, gambling defense and intercepted 22 passes. The Badgers gave up only 11 touchdown passes.

When two of the state's community college powerhouses meet in football, it usually comes down to which team gets the most breaks. Saturday night, Fullerton College broke tackles, and they broke El Camino's hearts. The Hornets (5-0)--the second-ranked team in the nation by the JC Grid-Wire--scored three touchdowns in the final six minutes of the game to erase a 24-9 deficit. Then Fullerton held on to shock eighth-ranked El Camino, 31-24, at Fullerton District Stadium.

UCLA quarterback Wayne Cook is quicker and more mobile than USC quarterback Rob Johnson. And Bruin Coach Terry Donahue's offense was more daring as well as more creative than Trojan Coach John Robinson's. And the result Saturday was a six-point decision for UCLA, 27-21, in a game that was won in the last minute but decided earlier when imaginative play selection enabled the Bruins to run for 230 yards against a Trojan team that could run for only seven yards, net, in 60 minutes.
