Freshman tailback Tyler Ebell (Ventura, CA/Ventura HS) of the UCLA Men's Football Team was selected as the UCLABruins.com Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Nov. 4-11.
At Arizona, Ebell became only the second player in school history to rush for over 100 yards in six consecutive games during the same season. Ebell finished with 124 yards and two touchdowns on 22 attempts in UCLA's 37-7 victory. His first touchdown was a tackle-breaking, reverse-field 22-yard run, while his second was a 19-yard run on fourth-and-one to give the Bruins a 17-0 lead. On the night, he had four runs of at least 19 yards, including one for 36 on UCLA's first touchdown drive.
Ebell leads the Bruins with 858 yards on 188 attempts and is averaging 4.6 yards per carry. He also leads the team with nine touchdowns and 54 points.
This is Ebell's third UCLABruins.com Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and his career.
