WWL's Pac-10 Preview: UCLA discussion starts around 1:43 mark.

Palmer also talks about how Neuheisel will instill a "professional attitude" turning UCLA "into one of the best programs in the Pac-10." Good stuff. GO BRUINS.

Similar to Washington, the Bruins don't have any easy games. Opening against Tennessee will be tough, as will a road trip to BYU. Fresno State sounds more manageable since the Bruins are 6-1 all-time against the Bulldogs. Then again, a lot of people are touting Fresno as a top-25 team this year.
