The Drew Olson bandwagon is now growing in Los Angeles. Lonnie White jumps aboard with a full profile on the best quarterback in the Pac-10:
On Saturday, Olson will play his final regular-season college game in the Bay Area when the Bruins face Stanford. In making his 34th start for UCLA, Olson said that although he's playing well, he's not about to "say I told you so" to critics who doubted that he could lead the Bruins to national prominence.
Both teams are 7-0, perhaps headed for a monumental intracity showdown Dec. 3. Bush, a leading Heisman Trophy contender, leads the nation with 203.1 all-purpose yards a game. Drew's 185.6 average is fourth. Bush has 13 touchdowns. Drew has 16, tied for second in the country.
