PROVO, Utah -- Relentlessly optimistic ran into harsh reality Saturday. There may come a day when the football monopoly in Los Angeles is over, but for now UCLA has enough trouble passing "Go." An embarrassing 59-0 loss to Brigham Young was a big indication of that, and left first-year Coach Rick Neuheisel offering up his favorite catch phrase in a different light. "We're going to test 'relentlessly optimistic,' " Neuheisel said after UCLA's worst loss since 1929. "But we knew it would be tested."

The most re-watched, talked about, analyzed play of UCLA's 2009 football season was when linebacker Akeem Ayers swooped in on Oregon quarterback Nate Costa, picking the ball out of mid-air and toeing the line at the back of the Rose Bowl end zone. The touchdown had a long highlight-reel shelf life on television. Work in the Bruins' film room came to a standstill when tape of that game was reviewed. Students on campus still ask Ayers to go through the play-second-by-second. But here's the truth: "I was supposed to drop into coverage," Ayers says, smiling.

Reggie Carter, banished from the Saddleback lineup because of fumbles earlier this season, took advantage of a second chance Saturday. He scored on an 89-yard kickoff return and a 16-yard run to help Saddleback to a 21-11 victory over Golden West in Mission Conference Central Division game at Orange Coast. The victory broke a two-game losing streak for Saddleback (3-3, 1-1 in the division). Carter fumbled three times, all of which led to touchdowns, as Mt.

Glenn Love is new to the whole linebacker thing, courtesy of the coaches, who moved the former strong safety closer to the line this spring. But having linebacker Akeem Ayers next to him expedites the process, since Ayers learned under former UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter . "I can be the one to help him out a lot," said Ayers, who, with free safety Rahim Moore , was named on Thursday to the 2010 Lott Trophy watch list....

UCLA showed some signs of life on offense last week against California. The Bruins rolled up 418 total yards. Quarterback Kevin Prince passed for 311 yards. Tailback Johnathan Franklin had a 74-yard touchdown run on a bum left ankle. That's the glass half-full spin. There's also the glass is cracked and leaking all over the counter view of things. The Bruins had to settle for field goals three of the four times they advanced close to the end zone. Prince had a pass intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

PROVO, Utah -- Mano y mano didn't work out very well for UCLA on Saturday. The Bruins' plan was to disrupt Brigham Young's offense by playing cornerback Alterraun Verner on Cougars wide receiver Austin Collie. Collie had 10 catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns in a 59-0 BYU victory. And Verner was left with no choice but to admire Collie's handiwork. "I knew he would do curls, but I didn't think he would do so many as he did in the beginning," Verner said. "He runs good routes and the one thing that surprised me was his catching ability.

With two minutes remaining against Arizona State last week, UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter huddled the defense together, alerting his teammates that they were on pace to hold the Sun Devils to the fewest yards since the Bruins gave up 42 to Arkansas in the 1989 Cotton Bowl. "It was just something to push the guys to finish," said Carter, knowing a 34-9 defeat was looming. "With the game lost, some may hang their heads low because it was all over. But we still had something we could accomplish."

Kevin Prince is UCLA's quarterback. End of story. That was the message from Coach Rick Neuheisel on Sunday, a day after the Bruins lost to 13th-ranked Oregon, 24-10. Prince, who sat out two games because of a fractured jaw, labored throughout the game. He completed 13 of 25 passes for 81 yards and had one pass intercepted, which was returned for a touchdown. Richard Brehaut replaced Prince in the fourth quarter and Neuheisel said he would "review" the quarterback situation.

Chuck Bullough , UCLA's defensive coordinator, gathered the Bruins' senior players on defense after meetings Sunday to seek a solution. UCLA's defense has been run over, run around and outrun in the last three games, a big reason for a three-game skid that has dimmed the team's chances of a bowl-game appearance. "We're on a three-game losing streak and we should have a better record right now," senior cornerback Alterraun Verner said. "You can't turn a program around overnight, but we have only six games left.

Focus doesn't get any simpler than this. "We've talked about going 9-3, which is good; 8-4, which is all right; 7-5, which is not bad. But, come on, let's just get a victory," UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter said. "Regardless of what is considered good at the end of the year, how about getting a 'W' this weekend?" Well, the Bruins get a "W" this weekend: Washington. Whether they get the "W" remains to be seen. Both sides must see opportunity here. Washington has lost four of its last five games and has not defeated UCLA at the Rose Bowl since 1996, losing the last six. Meanwhile, the Bruins have a five-game losing streak -- all in conference play.

UCLA linebacker Reggie Carter is experiencing freedom on the football field for the first time in two weeks. Carter will play without a brace on his left knee against Temple in the EagleBank Bowl on Tuesday. He sprained a ligament against Oregon on Oct. 10 and, although he did not sit out a game, the injury slowed him considerably, especially with the bulky brace. "I feel healthy for the first time in a while," said Carter, who will play his final game for UCLA. "I've had that brace for seven or eight weeks.

UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince tested his throwing arm, tossing passes in drills Wednesday during practice. "It was a step forward," Prince said. It was the first time Prince had thrown passes in drills since suffering an AC sprain and mild separation in his right shoulder. "It's not perfect," Prince said, "but it's better." Prince injured the shoulder in the USC-UCLA game on Nov. 28. Whether he can play against Temple in the EagleBank Bowl on Dec. 29 remains to be seen.

UCLA quarterback Richard Brehaut quickly came up with three benefits in getting to handle the first-team offense while starter Kevin Prince rests his injured right shoulder. "Reps, reps, reps," said Brehaut, a freshman. "All these extra practices, where I get to run the first team, are going to help me and get me ready for spring practice." It has given Brehaut a chance to put a positive finish on a rocky season, even if Prince heals in time to play against Temple on Dec. 29. "The more snaps he gets, the more he seems comfortable," Coach Rick Neuheisel said.

UCLA's EagleBank Bowl game preparations were interrupted Tuesday . . . by the players. The Bruins resurrected the most visible of UCLA football traditions after finishing stretching exercises. Coach Rick Neuheisel called his team into a huddle, exhorted them by barking, "Let's have a great effort today!" then watched as the players bolted over the practice field wall and took off, ending practice. The tradition is known as "Wall Day," an event Neuheisel thought he had ended last spring.

UCLA running back Chane Moline grew up in Orange County and knew exactly what the UCLA-USC rivalry was all about . . . until he played in it. Moline had a limited role in the Bruins' 13-9 upset of second-ranked USC in 2006, ending a seven-game losing streak against the Trojans. "I thought I knew how huge it was, then I played at the Rose Bowl that day," Moline said. "That was an eye-opening experience." Moline is one of four current UCLA seniors who were in uniform that day and on Saturday will get their last crack at the Trojans.

The cast of characters showing a little character had two leading men. The senior quarterback who conjures up horrific memories of bad passes . . . interceptions . . . defensive backs celebrating in the end zone . . . from a last season UCLA fans would love to forget. The freshman cornerback who is so skinny teammates would like to send him back to the table for seconds . . . and thirds . . . and maybe slip in a midnight snack or two. Kevin Craft, poster boy for a 4-8 season in 2008, came off the bench to put UCLA back in the win column.

For the past two weeks, "Rocky Top," the Tennessee fight song, has periodically blared over the loudspeakers at UCLA's practice field, a not-so-subtle reminder that the Bruins' season opener was approaching. The music stopped Thursday -- partly because of a power failure at the facility -- but the Volunteers were not far from the thoughts of those on the field. UCLA went from theory to practical application in preparing for its Sept. 1 season opener against Tennessee at the Rose Bowl.

UCLA's defense will walk, and limp, into Corvallis, Ore., to face a challenging Oregon State offense. The middle of the Bruins' defense took another hit Wednesday, as starting defensive tackle Jerzy Siewierski hobbled off the field on crutches. Siewierski injured his right foot during practice, according to Coach Rick Neuheisel . "Jerzy tweaked something," Neuheisel said. "We'll find out the significance of it. We'll have to wait and see." Siewierski was schedule to be re-examined this morning.
