Redshirt sophomore quarterback Jerry Neuheisel of the UCLA football team was named the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Sept. 8-14.

Neuheisel came off the bench after a first-quarter injury to starter Brett Hundley and helped lead the Bruins to a 20-17 win over Texas in a game played in Arlington, Texas. Neuheisel threw a pair of scoring passes and directed three scoring drives in the second half to rally the Bruins from a 10-3 halftime deficit. The second of Neuheisel’s scoring passes was the game-winner, a 33-yard toss to Jordan Payton with 3:00 remaining in the contest and put the Bruins up 20-17. Neuheisel’s first touchdown pass of his career, a three-yarder to Nate Iese, came on the initial drive of the second half and evened the score at 10-all. He also piloted the Bruins on a 16-play, 71-yard field goal drive which had put UCLA up 13-10 early in the fourth quarter. For the game, Neuheisel completed 23 of 30 passes for 178 yards, two scores and no interceptions.
