UCLA Could Win The Pac-12 South
Sounded far-fetched a few weeks ago, but the Bruins look decent enough. Their three losses have been to three really good teams with either overriding talent or elite college quarterbacks. They can run and move the ball behind Johnathan Franklin and Derrick Coleman. Four of their last five games are against South opponents. They get ASU in the Rose Bowl, a team that isn't that far ahead of them in production. Their defense can be maddening to watch, but so far it hasn't lost them any games. The ingredients are there for Rick Neuheisel to feel upbeat about at least a year or two more running the show in Westwood.
The big question is whether Kevin Prince can be as effective as Richard Brehaut. And that is a BIG if. Still, when was the last time a prince let you down?
