It is not as hot in Westwood as it is in the 909. That is the area code for San Bernardino. The UCLA football team is glad to not be there after two weeks at Cal State San Bernardino for the start of fall camp. They are back in cool, calm and collected Los Angeles and getting ready for the season, which as you know, starts in exactly one week. So has home treated them better than the road? Well, it is Hollywood.
There were a lot of minor injuries in San Berndarino and while they were plenty, they are also plenty recovering.
Mora says C Jake Brendel will be ready for Virginia. Was happy with recovery so far.

It is time to light the world on fire. With a week before season kickoff, the Bruins are fine tuning the offense, defense and showing why they are a Top 10 team. They are also impressed with one another.

Rick Neuheisel and the Pac12 out at UCLA camp today, said he was impressed with defense in particular. — Jordan Lee (@jordantlee) August 21, 2014
Rick Neuheisel also talked about the College Football Playoff. Said a two-loss Pac-12 champion deserves spot, but probably wouldn’t get one. — Jack Wang (@thejackwang) August 21, 2014
The Drive starts this week
