Rob Walker, who had been sacked once and thrown only one interception in 2 1/2 games since replacing injured starter Wayne Cook, threw three interceptions and was sacked three times when Arizona defeated UCLA, 23-3, Saturday. Said UCLA Coach Terry Donahue: "I don't think Rob Walker needs to shoulder the majority of responsibility for this (loss). Rob Walker is going to be a good quarterback." Defensive end Mike Chalenski will undergo surgery after tearing a tendon in his left thumb at Arizona.

Quarterback Rob Walker is stronger, throwing the ball better than ever but the probability of his playing has greatly diminished. Walker, a junior who has started six games for UCLA, is listed as third on the depth chart, behind starter Wayne Cook and Ryan Fien, returning from a redshirt season. "I spent a lot of time on a weight program and worked to use my legs instead of just throwing with my arm," Walker said.

Cook is a 22-year-old junior, Walker and Fien sophomores. Fien and Cook thrive on the long pass, Walker on ball control. Their paths have converged at UCLA, where each wants to be the starting quarterback. Each started last season, two of them when his predecessor was injured.

Rob Walker, UCLA's new quarterback, faced his first blitz Monday and managed to elude the media rushers. A redshirt freshman who didn't expect to play much this season, Walker, 6 feet 3 and 198 pounds, became the Bruins' starter when Wayne Cook suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first half of a 37-14 season-opening victory over Cal State Fullerton last Saturday.

Although classes don't begin until Thursday at UCLA, new Bruin quarterback Rob Walker spent this week cramming. Thrust into the lineup when starting quarterback Wayne Cook suffered a season-ending knee injury in UCLA's 37-14 season-opening victory over Cal State Fullerton last Saturday, Walker took a crash course in the Bruins' offense from offensive coordinator Homer Smith. Walker, who said he knows about 60% of the offense, will start for the first time in a college game when No.

UCLA, which lost quarterback Tommy Maddox two years early to the NFL, Sunday lost quarterback Wayne Cook, Maddox's replacement, for the rest of the season with torn ligaments in his right knee. "We are all deeply saddened by the loss of Wayne," UCLA Coach Terry Donahue said. "I've never had an athlete who worked as hard to prepare himself for a successful season as Wayne did. It's a tragedy to see an injury like this end his season."
