She left UCLA as a patriot. He left UCLA as a scoundrel. Andrea Anderson's story is a warm and fuzzy one. She dreamed of wearing the red, white and blue. She withdrew from UCLA, leaving family and friends behind to train in Florida and Missouri. She won a spot on the U.S. Olympic track team, on the 1,600-meter relay squad, and won a gold medal in Sydney. Marques Anderson's story is a cold and hard one, at least at first glance.

True freshman cornerback Marques Anderson, who has had his ups and downs this season, made three tackles, intercepted a pass, broke up two others, and was in the middle of things Saturday. Anderson was beaten by Husky receiver Jerome Pathon on a deep pass in the second quarter, but he reached in and tore the ball loose from Pathon to cause an incompletion.

Marques Anderson has regained his job as the starting left cornerback, a move initiated last week at Washington and set to continue Saturday against USC, just in time to get part of the responsibility of containing R. Jay Soward. Anderson was in the opening lineup the first two games, only to be replaced by Ryan Roques amid harsh words by Coach Bob Toledo as part of the Sept. 21 shake-up that hit the entire secondary.

Marques Anderson is a member in good standing with the UCLA secondary again. He is still the backup to Ryan Roques at left cornerback, but is holding steady, and playing in the nickel package is a lot better than the direction Anderson was headed about three weeks ago.

The loss of Lovell Houston and Julius Williams in the UCLA secondary is offset by the return of Marques Anderson after he missed all of last season because of disciplinary reasons. When the Bruins opened practice Saturday at Spaulding Field, it marked Anderson's first full-team participation in a little more than 20 months. He hasn't played in a game since the Rose Bowl loss to Wisconsin.

Tailback DeShaun Foster joined four UCLA teammates in sending letters to the NFL, asking where they might be drafted should they turn pro, Coach Bob Toledo said Monday. Foster, selected last week to the all-Pac-10 team, had previously indicated he would return for his senior season. Toledo said five juniors--Foster, receivers Freddie Mitchell and Brian Poli-Dixon, linebacker Robert Thomas and safety Marques Anderson--had sent letters to the NFL.

The XFL, the fledgling spring football league jointly developed by NBC and the World Wrestling Federation, dispatched a scout to the Bruins' practice Wednesday. Steve Malin, one of four national XFL scouts, said he is visiting 105 colleges to look at film, watch practice and assemble a list of prospects for the league. The XFL plans to start play next year, so this year's Bruin seniors could be next year's XFL rookies. Tailback Jermaine Lewis said he would consider playing in the new league.
