Kahlil Bell is, in a word, outnumbered. The running back from UCLA is the only player from his school invited to the NFL scouting combine. There are 11 USC players here. "It's unfortunate that some of my teammates got overlooked," Bell said Friday. "Guys like [defensive end] Brigham Harwell, second-team All-Pac-10, didn't get a chance to come here and showcase his talents.

UCLA running back Milton Knox spent the last few months running up and down the large hill near his family's house. Occasionally, he hit the dunes in Manhattan Beach, plowing his way through the heavy sand. "I'm a man on a mission this year," Knox said. "I know the playbook. The game has slowed down for me. I have to show them what I can do." There is some urgency for Knox and fellow redshirt freshman Johnathan Franklin . Junior Christian Ramirez and sophomore Derrick Coleman are the top two tailbacks.

UCLA lost more Saturday than football game it was capable of winning. Tailback Kahlil Bell, who was injured in the first quarter of a 27-7 loss to Washington State, is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, Coach Karl Dorrell said Monday. Surgery will be scheduled once the swelling goes down. Also, wide receiver Brandon Breazell has bruised ribs and his chances of playing against Arizona on Saturday are "50-50," Dorrell said.

The aftermath of the 59-0 shellacking Brigham Young laid on UCLA on Saturday had Bruins coaches poring over the film while trying to prop up their players' psyches Sunday. That will require a detailed review of the horror film -- for the Bruins -- that was shot in Provo, Utah. It will provide players, and coaches, a to-do list that must be at least partially handled before Saturday's game against Arizona. "When you take a tail-whipping like we took, the first thing you want to do is throw away the tape," Coach Rick Neuheisel said.

UCLA tailback Kahlil Bell hobbled off the field at the end of the first half against Washington State, still bothered by a high-ankle sprain that forced him to sit out two games. He'd rushed for 32 yards, including a one-yard touchdown run. He came off the field after catching a seven-yard pass that was nullified by a holding penalty. He was back in the lineup when the second half started, another example of Bell's drive to remain on the field, but sat out the last 10 minutes.

UCLA defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker's task is to prepare for a Brigham Young University team for the third time in a year. UCLA faced the Cougars twice last season, including the Las Vegas Bowl, where Walker was the interim head coach and defensive coordinator. "We're getting down to the bare minimum on schemes," he said. "It will be an interesting game in terms of the chess match. I'm sure they are going to look at the things we did well against them, just like we've looked at what they did well to see if we can eliminate it."

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Where the football went, Kahlil Bell didn't know. UCLA quarterback Ben Olson had put it in his midsection, Bell said. Then the football was gone and Oregon State's Al Afalava had recovered. First play of the game and Bell fumbled. Wait. It gets worse. The Bruins hold Oregon State, not so much with their own great work but because Beavers kicker Alexis Serna misses a 45-yard field-goal try. When UCLA gets the ball back, Bell's No. 36 is immediately called again.

This was an easy question for someone with a shoot-from-the-lip style. Who is your favorite offensive lineman? UCLA tailback Kahlil Bell glanced skyward, as if seeking advice, then smiled and groaned, "You're going to get me in trouble." Then in his best vote-for-me voice said, "I love all the linemen. They are all cool guys." Diplomacy from Kahlil Bell?

The two sides of Ben Olson were on display during UCLA's practice Thursday. There was the Big Ben, lofting a pass worthy of a how-to video, that wide receiver Taylor Embree snagged for a long gain during seven-on-seven drills. Later it was the other guy, as Olson forced a pass into coverage that was intercepted by linebacker Akeem Ayers. This is the daily drill, as Olson prepares for his final season.

PALO ALTO -- While most of the crowd filed out of Stanford Stadium, a small army of family and friends stood at the railing by the field, waiting for Kahlil Bell. Finally, the UCLA tailback trotted over for much hugging and hand-slapping, the kind of celebration that comes with a dazzling performance. Dazzling as in 19 carries for 195 yards that helped power No. 14 UCLA to a season-opening 45-17 victory over Stanford. And numbers tell only half the story.
