Bruins Begin Game Week Mode on Sunday

Aug. 26, 2012

Coach Mora addresses the media after Sunday's practice

The Bruins entered game week practice mode on Sunday at Spaulding Field as they prepare for the August 30 season-opener at Rice. Coach Mora talked about creating a routine to help carry the players through the week and game ahead.

The Bruins are 60-28-5 all-time in season-openers. This will be the third straight season UCLA has begun a season away from the Rose Bowl and the second year in a row that a season will open in Houston, TX. Brett Hundley would become the third freshman quarterback to start a season-opener for UCLA. Kevin Prince, in 2009, and Bret Johnson, in 1989, are the others.

The game against Rice University will be televised by the CBS Sports Network beginning at 6:30 p.m. CT/4:30 p.m. PT. The Bruins then return home to the Rose Bowl for three straight games --- Nebraska (Sept. 8, 4:30 p.m. on FOX), Houston (Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks) and Oregon State (Sept. 22, time TBA).
