Former Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda will address UCLA's football team before the Bruins meet Texas on Saturday at the Rose Bowl.

Lasorda, who has given motivational speeches to teams across the country, will meet the Bruins at their team hotel (UCLA stays in a hotel the night before home games) and give a pep talk right before they board the bus to the stadium.

"I’m excited for Tommy to have a chance to meet with the boys," coach Rick Neuheisel said. "Tommy usually has a good idea of what to say. I trust him with the team having had his kind of experiences and his kind of gift with words, I think he’ll be quite eloquent."
