2. Cade McNown 1995-98

Cade McNown is the ultimate “Trojan Killer”! For four straight years, McNown had defeated crosstown rival USC as he helped extend the longest winning streak in the UCLA-USC rivalry to eight games.

Before a spry young Bruin named Brett Hundley took over several of his achievements, McNown was the holder for many school records which included most touchdown passes (68).

In post-seasonplay, McNown also went to the 1997 Aloha Bowl and the 1998 Cotton Bowl, losing the former and getting a victory in the latter. In 1997, McNown was also named to the All-Pac-10 2nd team, and the All-American 3rd team choice. But that was just the start.

in 1998, NcNown was seemingly leading the Bruins on a National Title run, the first since 1954. Unfortunately, nature and circumstance derailed that as an early season hurricane moved a crucial game against Miami to the end of the season where the Bruins lost not just the game, but a chance at the National Title. The Bruins then went to play Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl where they lost 38-31.
