Quotes from Arizona Head Coach Rich Rodriguez

On UCLA QB Brett Hundley and their offense:

I remember when he came out of high school. He is an Arizona native and people know about him. I knew this guy was going to have great success no matter where he went. They have a system that suits him well. They have a great running back, another athletic tight end and some skill players. They play with confidence. They've always been good athletes and players but now they're playing in a system they feel comfortable with and they're also playing with a lot of confidence.

On UCLA's system:

Their offensive coordinator, I know pretty well, Noel Mazzone, he does a terrific job and always has been. They'll spread you out and if you have weaknesses, they'll try to expose that. We have to be really sound defensively. We have to hope to get a couple breaks. On the flip side, we have to get first downs on the offense. We have to maintain as much control as we can with our offense.

On stopping UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin:

I think you need to get more than one person there. That's the key for us. We've done okay at times with tackling and other times we haven't. We're not fast enough to not have multiple people there. We have to get guys down the blocks to get more than one person. Part of the design of their offense is to get open guys down the field, so that's a concern. We have to get them on the ground.

On UCLA head coach Jim Mora:

I met him for the first time this year at our league meeting. I knew who he was and what he has done. He's an outstanding football coach and seems like a great guy. He's got it going on there at UCLA.
