Los Angeles - Local and national media affiliates got their first glimpse of the 2001 UCLA football team Friday, as the team held its annual media day at UCLA's Spaulding Field.
In addition to coach Bob Toledo's news conference held in the press room of the J.D. Morgan Center, media members were also permitted to go out on to the practice field and conduct one-on-one interviews with this year's players.
The Bruins kickoff practice for the upcoming season on Aug. 11 in preparation for the season opener against Alabama on Sept. 1 in Tuscaloosa. UCLA's first home game of the year is on Sept. 15 against Arizona State at the Rose Bowl. Game time is 7:15 p.m.
