Ryan Roques had been playing well anyway, a bright spot in the secondary and along with Joey Strycula one of the few constants in a second consecutive season of turnover among the defensive backs. "I'm proud of Ryan," Coach Bob Toledo said. "He's playing good." But the events of last week meant recognition. Roques, a starting cornerback, had two interceptions against Arizona, the first time that has been done by a Bruin since safety Larry Atkins a little more than two years ago.

Backup quarterback Drew Bennett, hampered by a strained right elbow, is listed as probable for Saturday at Arizona State, and, even if he continues to have trouble throwing, he is expected to have a role. As a receiver. "Absolutely," UCLA Coach Bob Toledo said. "Hopefully, the [swelling in the] elbow will go down more and he'll be able to throw."

The players who walked into spring practice almost four weeks ago at UCLA walked out Thursday, with two exceptions. Cornerback Javelin Guidry underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday and defensive end Pete Holland had surgery for a broken bone in his foot. Both should be ready for the Bruins' season opener Aug. 30 at Washington State.

UCLA running back Skip Hicks has still not been cleared to play Saturday against Northeast Louisiana in the Rose Bowl, though that is expected today, and tight end Mike Grieb is out because of an ankle injury. Quarterback Cade McNown has a tender shoulder from lifting weights. Backup running back Ryan Roques suffered a cut on a hand against Tennessee that required stitches, and is questionable.

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.

The key to the Tennessee pass rush is Leonard Little, and UCLA's Chad Overhauser will see a lot of him Saturday. Little won't be hard to find. Defensive ends who wear No. 1 usually aren't. "He has a little bit of speed," said Overhauser, a 295-pound tackle who was joking about his 230-pound opponent. "I think he runs a 4.5 [in the 40-yard dash]." The Volunteers move Little around on the line, but generally play him over the left tackle, where he often has to deal with a tight end.

Coach Bob Toledo took a piece of paper from his pocket after practice Tuesday and showed part of the list he had written, reminders of things to tell the team. One entry: "Morton: I guarantee victory." The Bruins had officially not forgotten. USC tailback Chad Morton predicted at the Pacific 10 Conference media day in early August that this was the year UCLA's eight-game winning streak in the series would end, a comment the Bruins let fly right by with minimal interest. Until this week.

The moratorium has been lifted, so the Bruins finally got the chance to jump on Paul Hackett, even though the USC coach has recently revised his standings and said UCLA has the best offense the Trojans have seen this year. Hackett's comments four weeks ago about Oregon being the best team in the conference drew scowls and attention around Westwood, seeing as how the Bruins had already beaten the Ducks. But UCLA wanted to focus on the opponent at hand.
