UCLA will put a special emphasis on its punt team this week after Oklahoma's Antonio Perkins returned seven punts for an NCAA-record 277 yards and three touchdowns against the Bruins on Saturday. "There's a lot we can change," Coach Karl Dorrell said. "We tried two directional punts and didn't get the job done. Our errors were small, but they were critical.... We could use some starters and key backups on the punt team.

Winless San Diego State might suffer another loss--even before Saturday's game against UCLA begins. Attendance could be far less than anticipated. Aztec officials raised ticket prices and produced 50,000 Marshall Faulk bobbleheads for the game at Qualcomm Stadium, believing it would be the biggest revenue-producer of the season. However, ESPN2 exercised its right to move the starting time from 6 p.m. to 11 a.m. Rather than drawing a crowd of 45,000, San Diego State is hoping to reach 30,000.
