Alabama at Texas A&M was everything a great college game is supposed to be with this notable exception: That sure didn't look like the Southeastern Conference that CBS loves to promote. Not once during the broadcast did Verne ( Lundquist ) or Gary ( Danielson ) dare mention that D-E-F-E-N-S-E is what sets the SEC apart from all other leagues. The cue usually comes from a producer in the CBS truck right after they flash a wacky Pac-12 score on the screen. "Boy," Gary might say. "That's a score we wouldn't recognize in this league.

UCLA had an emotional week leading up to its big nonconference showdown against No. 23 Nebraska Saturday in Lincoln. UCLA made two costly mistakes, leading to big deficit midway through the second quarter. UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley looked indecisive and out of sync against the Cornhuskers, who were seeking their 15 th consecutive nonconference win at home, where they were playing before another sellout crowd. None of which mattered once Hundley found his rhythm and the 16 th -ranked Bruins hit high gear.

LINCOLN, Neb. - Savvy travelers should always check their itineraries with those who have been there. Terry Donahue came here to face Nebraska in football four times, three as UCLA's head coach. "None of them were good," he said. Rick Neuheisel took the Memorial Stadium field as UCLA's starting quarterback in 1983 and left it as the backup. "It was not a good day at the office," he said. Wayne Cook, another Bruins' quarterback, experienced that deafening Cornhuskers crowd in 1994.

The Blackshirts are in the hands of greenhorns. Nebraska's defense, long known as the Blackshirts and once the monsters of the Midwest, slipped in recent seasons, then hit a free fall in the opener against Wyoming two weeks ago. A 37-34 survival seminar with Wyoming rolling up 602 yards? It was time to send in the cub scouts. Linebackers Josh Banderas and Nathan Gerry , both first-year freshmen, were rushed into the starting lineup last week. The No. 23 Cornhuskers routed Southern Mississippi, 56-13, holding the Golden Eagles to 284 yards.

Preparation for a football game against Nebraska starts with a look at Taylor Martinez , the Cornhuskers' senior quarterback. UCLA, which travels to Lincoln on Saturday, is well acquainted with his play. A year ago, UCLA escaped with a 36-30 victory even though Martinez threw for 179 yards and ran for 112. The No. 16-ranked Bruins now get another dose. "He's a dynamic player," UCLA Coach Jim Mora said. "You have to be sound in your assignments and stay in your gaps.

A day after UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale died after being struck by a vehicle, the Bruins went back to work preparing for Saturday's game against Nebraska - while remembering their popular teammate. Players patted two handmade posters attached to the fence at Spaulding Field, one reading "Play for each other, play for your brother," the other, "We love you Nick. " The practice facility's UCLA football flag was at half staff. Linebacker Eric Kendricks , who wears No. 6, walked onto the field with a "3" taped to his jersey to honor Pasquale, who wore No. 36. Coach Jim Mora became annoyed with a television technician who was speaking loudly into a cellphone during Mora's weekly news conference.

"What we need is an army of the kind. " Cleveland Amory Kindness One, my trusty motorcycle with the sidecar, has already transported me from Los Angeles to the cornfields of Nebraska. In truth, though, it is not Kindness One that has been doing the heavy lifting. It's the people I've met along the way. People have filled the bike with gas, fed me and opened their homes on these first legs of my around-the-world journey that began Aug. 10. I have no money, no food, no place to stay, relying on the goodness in others to help me on my journey.
