Bruin Bites: Colorado's Interesting Stat, Getting Thiggy With It, Arizona's Focus, MJD to New England?

Stephen Dunn

It's Monday morning and the Bruins are enjoying the beginning of the week, having gotten back to their winning ways by downing Colorado 45-23 at the Rose Bowl. However, the rest will be short-lived as UCLA has a road trip to Arizona, with revenge on the minds of the Mildcats after their 66-10 humiliation last year in Pasadena.

This weekend's win made the Bruins bowl eligible, and more importantly, ended UCLA's two-game slide, hopefully setting up Jim Mora's team for a clean run of nothing but wins through the rest of the regular season.  Anything less than that will likely cost the Bruins their third-straight Pac-12 South division crown and a return trip to Palo Alto or Eugene for a chance at the conference title.

The Mildcats will be motivated to avenge the beating they took at the Rose Bowl last year, Arizona State has been looking better with each passing week, Coach Zero seems to have Southern Cal back on the upswing (which makes you wonder when Haden will quit messing around and remove the interim label), and Washington is dangerous.  But when you look at the roster of each squad, the Bruins have more talent than any of their remaining opponents, so any losses are going to fall on the shoulders of the coaching staff.  So, with the Bruins heading into the final stretch of the season, let's take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse to start off the work week:

Alright folks, those are your bits and pieces of news from around the football-related UCLA-iverse. Fire away with your comments, additions, thoughts, etc. in the thread as we kick off yet another work week.
