Toledo Names Paus Starting Quarterback

Aug. 21, 2000

Los Angeles --UCLA head coach Bob Toledo named a starting quarterback Monday, opting for sophomore Cory Paus over fellow sophomore Ryan McCann. Junior Scott McEwan is third on the depth chart.

"Cory, at this point, operates the offense better and that was the whole key," said Toledo following Monday's morning workout. "Ryan is still learning and he's made great strides and he's closed the gap a little. He just doesn't have the total knowledge of the offense that Corey does at this point."

The Bruins kick off the 2000 season at home against Alabama on Sept. 2 at the Rose Bowl beginning at 12:30 p.m.(Live-ABC).
