Bruin Bites: Big Weekend Wins for Men's H2O Polo, V-Ball Struggles, Soccer Rolling in Tourney

Being ranked #2 is somehow good-enough for the #1-overall seed for men, but not for the women. Explain that one NCAA. - UCLA Athletics / uclabruins.com

It's Tuesday afternoon and with the football team getting ready for Saturday afternoon's Pac-12 South showdown at the Rose Bowl against Arizona State, we take a few minutes to shift our focus from the Bruins preparing for this Saturday's big game against the Sun Devils, and take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse.

Another week, another win, and another show by Superman Myles Jack. I'd be willing to bet $5 he can probably punt the ball 40+ yards too, because, well he's Myles freakin' Jack. He'll lead the Bruins back to the Rose Bowl this Saturday in one of the biggest games of the year, as our Bruins will take on Arizona State with the Pac-12 South division crown on the line. Win and we go on to face Southern Cal for a berth in Eugene for the title match; lose and the Sun Devils will get to head to the Pacific Northwest to take on the fighting Phil Knights Ducks. But while we wait to see how our Bruins will fare in this pivotal Saturday conference match, let's take a quick minute to take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your non-revenue sports related bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse for this Tuesday afternoon. Stay tuned as we switch back into full-blown football mode as our Bruins gear up for this Saturday afternoon's Pac-12 South showdown against the Arizona Sun Devils at the Rose Bowl. Fire away in the comment thread with your thoughts, additions, opinions, etc. as we get ready for Saturday.
