Today is the last day of summer. UCLA starts classes in 2 days. Celebrate the impending change of seasons by checking out What's Bruin.

UCLA Football

The burning question of the week is whether Arizona All-American linebacker Scooby Wright will play against the Bruins on Saturday. He'll try to practice this week after tearing the lateral meniscus in his left knee on September 3rd.

ESPN's Ivan Maisel has a short piece on how UCLA Defensive Coordinator Tom Bradley emphasized keeping BYU quarterback, Tanner Mangum, in the pocket. NOTE: Maisel is wrong on one fact; Mangum's only INT was to Jack.

Jack Wang has a good video of an interview with UCLA running back, Paul Perkins. The Perkinator talks about his role on the team, Arizona, BYU, Nate Starks, Josh Rosen, and other topics. Thanks to Jack Wang for sharing the video of Paul.

Chris Foster of the L.A. Times has a piece focusing on how the wide receivers are adjusting to look for the ball when protection breaks down with Josh Rosen at quarterback, which wasn't the case with Brett Hundley.

Tom Hoffarth of the L.A. Daily News ranks the UCLA v. Arizona contest as the top sporting event during the week of September 21st.

UCLA Baseball

The UCLA athletics official site has a breakdown of how former UCLA baseball players fared in the minor leagues this summer.

Men's Soccer

The UCLA Bruin Men's Soccer team fell yesterday at home 4-2, to the UCSB Gauchos. The former #1 ranked team in the country now sits at a disappointing 2-4.

Men's Water Polo

After UCLA's stellar performance over the weekend in winning the NorCal Invitational, goalkeeper Garrett Danner has been named the MPSF player of the week. Congratulations to Garrett!

That concludes today's What's Bruin. Have a great day and Go Bruins!
