UCLA: Despite a three-game losing skid to end the year, Jim Mora Jr. has to be praised for his 9-5 first season with UCLA. The offense improved to 467 YPG (24th in FBS) thanks to QB Brett Hundley (3,470 pass yds, 29 TD, 11 INT; 355 rush yds, 9 TD). The sophomore won't have RB Johnathan Franklin, but plenty of talent still exists with RBs Jordon James (419 total yds), Malcolm Jones (313 rush yds career) and freshman Paul Perkins. Hundley has exciting targets in WRs Shaquelle Evans (877 rec. yds, 3 TD) and freshman Devin Fuller, but the O-Line can't let him absorb another 52 sacks (2nd-most in FBS). The scoring defense improved to 58th in FBS (27.6 PPG), from 94th in 2011 (31.4 PPG). An elite linebacker trio of Anthony Barr (13.5 sacks, 83 tackles, 4 FF), Eric Kendricks (149 tackles, 3 FR, 2 TD) and Jordan Zumwalt (70 tackles) is the heart of the 3-4 scheme. The secondary is green, but still better than most.
NEBRASKA: Dual-threat QB Taylor Martinez (2,871 pass yds, 23 TD, 12 INT; 1,019 rush yds, 10 TD) returns for his fourth year of running the Huskers' offense. The turnover-prone Martinez (16 fumbles, 8 lost) has plenty of weapons at his disposal again with his WR trio of Kenny Bell (863 rec. yds, 8 TD), Quincy Enunwa (470 rec. yds) and Jamal Turner (417 rec. yds). Star RB Rex Burkhead is gone, but RB Ameer Abdullah (1,137 rush yds, 8 TD) proved that he is a strong every-down back. He and his veteran O-Line could even surpass the Huskers' 253 rushing YPG (8th in nation) from last year. The defense, which allowed 53.5 PPG in its four losses, still has major questions. DE Jason Ankrah (6 TFL) is the only starter back from the front seven, but sophomore LB David Santos had a monster spring. The nation's No. 4 pass defense (168 YPG) is stacked with shut-down CBs Ciante Evans (56 tackles, 8 PD) and Andrew Green (50 tackles) leading the heavily experienced secondary.

*UCLA-Nebraska Preview* =======================

No. 17 UCLA (1-0) at No. 16 Nebraska (2-0), 12:00 p.m. EDT

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Minutes after his team finished its win over Southern Mississippi, Nebraska coach Bo Pelini reminded his players that they have a score to settle this week against UCLA.

"They're coming into our house, and we owe them," players said Pelini told them before he walked out of the locker room.

Pelini on Monday downplayed but didn't dismiss getting even as an incentive for the 23rd-ranked Cornhuskers in their meeting with the No. 16 Bruins (1-0) on Saturday in Lincoln.

Last year, the Huskers lost 36-30 in Los Angeles and gave up 653 yards - the second-most ever against a Nebraska defense.

Pelini said an estimated 300 of those 653 yards came after Nebraska defenders had made initial contact. The coach doesn't expect his players to forget that.

"I would hope, and I'm pretty positive, our team is motivated no matter what the situation," he said. "It just so happens we played this team a year ago, so if that provides our guys with extra motivation, so be it. I would hope it does. Hopefully that motivation will come in the form of great preparation, because that's how you win a football game."

The result of the visit to Lincoln might feel secondary to UCLA. The Bruins' bye week after a 58-20 season-opening win over Nevada was interrupted by tragedy as walk-on wide receiver Nick Pasquale was hit by a car and killed while walking in his hometown of San Clemente on Sunday.

Coach Jim Mora closed all practices this week to the media, and UCLA players weren't made available for comment.

"Our players are dealing with it each in their own way," he said. "We think that's the right way to do it. The important thing is they're together. This is a very close team and they care desperately about each other."

Pelini said the university's thoughts and prayers were with Pasquale, his family, and UCLA.

"That's a lot bigger than any football game," he said. "Obviously, this has got to be a very difficult time for them."

The Bruins will wear a No. 36 patch on their jerseys the rest of the season. Mora said Nebraska's players will have a sticker with Pasquale's number on their helmets and there will be a moment of silence before Saturday's game in his honor.

Pelini will certainly be focused on making sure UCLA doesn't sneak up on Nebraska again. The 2012 Bruins had a new coach in Mora and new quarterback in Brett Hundley, but the Huskers (2-0) now have ample video of UCLA's 9-5 season and its opening win over Nevada.

Hundley is well-established as one of the nation's top run-pass threats, and he's earning some mention as a Heisman Trophy candidate.

He threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 63 yards and two more scores in the victory over the Wolf Pack.

The Bruins no longer have Johnathan Franklin, who ran for a career-high 217 yards against the Huskers, or big tight end Joseph Fauria, who caught two TD passes.

But they have a quality back in junior Jordon James, who had 155 yards and a touchdown in the opener, and a deep receiving group led by Shaquelle Evans.

Senior defensive back Ciante Evans said besides Ohio State's Braxton Miller, Hundley is the best quarterback he's faced.

Hundley accounted for 358 yards of total offense and four touchdowns against the Huskers. One of the things that make him such a challenge is his ability to avoid pressure while his receivers work to get open.

"We have to cover longer. That's our job," Evans said. "Extended plays are going to happen Saturday. We have to get used to it and practice it throughout the week."

Pelini said his young defense has been mostly on point with its tackling, but he based that on games against Wyoming and Southern Miss.

The degree of difficulty increases significantly against the Bruins, whose spread offense creates space and one-on-one matchups for its playmakers.

Last year's loss to UCLA was the Huskers' closest of the season and a precursor to defensive meltdowns against Ohio State on the road, Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game and Georgia in the Capital One Bowl.

"It was our first loss and it was a loss out there that we feel we shouldn't have had," defensive end Jason Ankrah said. "It's one of those losses we took into our offseason program, and it provided motivation."

Evans said UCLA "deserved every bit" of the victory last year.

"All the losses are a sticking point, especially when you want to win them all," he said. "We remember them. We remember this one as a team. Hopefully we'll come out with a sense of urgency this week."
