The UCLA Football team is back in Westwood for the final week of fall camp as they prepare to take on the Virginia Cavaliers in less than two weeks at the Rose Bowl. The Bruins returned to campus on Monday after their two week training camp in San Bernardino, but even though they are back home does not mean they are in familiar territory.
With the groundbreaking of the Wasserman Football Center taking place this Thursday, August 27, Spualding Field will be off limits to the team who will be practicing on the I.M. field for the next two seasons.

, UCLA Football Head Coach
does not seem to mind.
One thing he did not talk about much was the fact that a starting QB has still not been named. Mora had said that the team would start preparations for Virginia starting on Wednesday in which he was asked about which QB would be out there first. Mora did not take the bait and stated that two quarterbacks will be out there preparing for the game.

One thing we know for sure is that it is now only a two player race as Jerry Neuheisel and Josh Rosen are the finalists, so to speak. Mike Fafaul, has apparently been cut from the list.
Mora also clarified that whatever sources certain media members might have, him and the coaching staff have not made any decisions on the starting QB. Though it was stated that the UCLA Football team could have a QB by the weekend, Mora said that he was “not going to put on a time on it.”
On a different note, Mora said that he was “pleased” freshman TE Chris Clark who is going through his first few days of the preseason and that he has a “good grasp” of the offense for not being in practice for the first two weeks. Clark was out for most of San Bernardino with mononucleosis.
Mora then addressed a few injury inquiries. When asked about Simon Goines and his “medical condition”, Mora simply replied that it is uncertain at this time”. As for two other offenive linemen that were injured last week, Jake Brendel and Conor McDermott returned to practice today.
