Aaron Hester crumpled to the ground midway through practice Wednesday after hurting his left ankle, but the UCLA cornerback's injury won't be the reason he doesn't play in the first half against Utah. After practice ended, cornerback Randall Carroll inadvertently told reporters inquiring about increased playing time after Hester's injury that Hester would be suspended for part of Saturday's game. "He wasn't going to get to play the first half, so I think it's going to stay the same," Carroll said of his playing time.

Utah offensive coordinator Norm Chow will face his former employer when UCLA plays the Utes on Saturday. Chow was the Bruins' offensive coordinator last season but was indifferent about playing against a past paycheck. "I am too old for all that," Chow said. "It's another game that these guys have to win to be bowl-eligible, and I'm serious about that. " Utah, like UCLA, is 5-4, one victory shy of bowl eligibility. This is the third time this season that he has faced a former team.

One week UCLA goes with a 212-pound defensive end. The next the Bruins put a wide receiver at defensive back. Call it daring, call it desperate, it has worked. "That is born out of necessity," Coach Rick Neuheisel said. "No. 1, we had attrition because of injuries. No. 2, we weren't having success. " This weekend's surprise was Randall Carroll at cornerback, a position he hasn't played since his senior year at Los Angeles Cathedral High. Carroll, a junior wide receiver, was used in passing situations in the 29-28 victory over Arizona State, usually when UCLA employed four cornerbacks against the Sun Devils' spread offense.

This would be a problem for most teams. UCLA is down to third-stringers at both safety positions, according to how the depth chart read at the start of the season. Yet, Tevin McDonald and Stan McKay hardly seemed liabilities in the Bruins' 31-14 victory over California last Saturday. McDonald intercepted three passes. McKay tied for the team lead with six tackles. The Bruins have been without Tony Dye (neck injury) and Alex Mascarenas (concussion) for weeks, and lost Dietrich Riley (neck injury)

UCLA safety Dietrich Riley lay on the field, a little frightened, Saturday night. By the time he was being taken off the field on a stretcher, he was already negotiating to stay at the Rose Bowl. That's how quickly Riley was able to exhale following a collision with California running back Isi Sofele in the fourth quarter. "It was scary," Riley said. "I didn't know what to expect. I couldn't feel anything in my upper and lower body. " When the feeling came back, "I was saying, 'I want to get off. I want to walk.

Highly touted freshman quarterback Brett Hundley was not ready to play had UCLA needed to replace Kevin Prince against Arizona last week, Coach Rick Neuheisel said Monday. "I'm not afraid to play Brett Hundley," Neuheisel said. "My concern is Brett being ready to play. " Neuheisel said he "thought briefly" about using Hundley, but it was junior Nick Crissman who warmed up late in the game. Crissman didn't play because the Wildcats ran out the clock in a 48-12 victory.

UCLA could leave Tucson in a temporary tie for first place in the Pacific 12 Conference's South Division. That would be a watershed moment for Rick Neuheisel, now in his fourth season as coach of the Bruins. Times staff writer Chris Foster examines the game's issues and matchups: Nick of time Arizona's 1-5 record brought an end to Mike Stoops' time as the coach in Tucson. But the Wildcats have one big thing going for them: quarterback Nick Foles. Foles has passed for fewer than 378 yards in a game only once this season, when he had 239 yards against Stanford.

UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince never saw the guy coming. He was making a dash for the sideline in the season opener when Houston's D.J. Hayden sent him head over heels. Prince suffered a concussion and a separated shoulder. UCLA quarterback Richard Brehaut has no idea who landed on him. He cut up the middle for five yards last week and a Washington State player plopped down on his left leg. Brehaut hobbled off with a broken bone in the leg. The Bruins' "pistol" offense may need a warning label: Can be hazardous to your quarterback's health.

Question: I agree that you should never boo a college athlete but people are sometimes pretty ignorant. I was at the game and heard the boos around me and those close by. I asked if they were booing Prince. The answer was 100% no. They were booing the decision to put Prince in the game. We are starving for success at UCLA and want to see if the freshman kid Hundley just might be the answer. Did you ask the people booing if they were indeed booing Prince? Robert Lorenzi Answer: No more than you asked everyone in attendance — although that might be possible at UCLA home games this year.

When is it OK for you, at a college game, to boo your home team's starting quarterback for the simple act of entering a game? The correct answer is "never," but that didn't stop UCLA's unfaithful Saturday night at the Rose Bowl. Kevin Prince was forced into the thick of the Washington State plot only because starter Richard Brehaut broke his leg. Prince, last ridiculed after three first-quarter interceptions against Texas, was greeted with derision before even being allowed the chance to throw another pick — which he quickly did. The song, remember, says be true to "your" school.
