UCLA lineman Shannon Tevaga and his younger brother, Sonny, loved to compete against each other growing up. It didn't matter if it was basketball or checkers, they would just go at it. When it came to colleges, it was no different. Shannon was Mr. USC, and Sonny was Mr. UCLA. "I started following the Bruins when Bob Toledo was coach and Cade McNown was their quarterback," said Sonny, a senior at Compton Dominguez High. "That was my team. But not Shannon. He was always with those other guys."

UCLA's offensive line is on the verge of getting a little stronger, as guard Shannon Tevaga will probably be available for Saturday's game against Notre Dame. Tevaga, considered the Bruins' best offensive lineman, suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee against Utah on Sept. 15. He went through practice, including contact drills, on Tuesday and seemed itching to return. "I feel good, I feel strong," Tevaga said. "The rehab was a tougher one and it made me stronger.

Freshman Shannon Tevaga is in at strong-side guard and will start today against Arizona State. Junior Robert Cleary is out at weak-side guard and will be replaced by senior Steven Vieira, who moves over from his strong-side position. UCLA's coaching staff made those moves this week in hopes of shaking up an offensive line that had become stagnant since Maurice Drew's record-breaking rushing day at Washington a month ago.

The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the 2007 NFL draft is about a month away, and one of UCLA's top juniors, Shannon Tevaga, said he'll make a decision about his future after the Bruins' play Florida State in the Emerald Bowl on Dec. 27. "I really haven't thought about it," said Tevaga, a 6-foot-3, 313-pound, three-year starter at offensive guard. "Me and my parents will talk about it after this last game. My main thought is about the Emerald Bowl and Florida State."

In his first start, last week at Arizona State, freshman offensive guard Shannon Tevaga struggled early. Not because he didn't know his assignments or was being overmatched. It was because he was nervous. "Real nervous," he said. But Tevaga settled down, and by the end of the game he was dishing out a lot more than he was taking. Coach Karl Dorrell credited Tevaga's play for sparking the Bruins' running game.

Senior tackle C.J. Niusulu, UCLA's most experienced defensive lineman, was suspended indefinitely by Coach Karl Dorrell on Tuesday for violation of athletic department policy. Niusulu, who sat out last season's game against San Diego State for the same violation, may have played his last game as a Bruin. "I don't know at this point and time whether I'm going to give him the opportunity to come back or not," Dorrell said.

Senior Robert Cleary was listed as the starting weakside guard on UCLA's depth chart heading into the season, but by the first game he was a backup to sophomore Chris Joseph. It was a tough blow for a player who had hopes of finishing his college career on a strong note. But instead of sulking, Cleary worked harder than ever and when Joseph suffered a season-ending knee injury against California, he stepped right in.

WHEN UCLA HAS THE BALL Quarterback Drew Olson, running back Maurice Drew and tight end Marcedes Lewis are the key players with the ball, but the players most important to the Bruins' success are linemen Mike McCloskey, Shannon Tevaga, Robert Cleary, Ed Blanton and Brian Abraham. If UCLA controls the line of scrimmage, Oregon State's defense will have a long day. Washington State threw for 531 yards against the Beavers three weeks ago.
