Football practice report: Thursday quick hits

By Peter Yoon

For the third consecutive day, UCLA brought a lot of energy and spirit to the practice field on Thursday.  Defensive players erupted in the Florida State/Atlanta Braves "tomahawk chop" chant during team drills and there were a few minor skirmishes during the mid-day practice session.

"Kids are excited about playing and finishing," Coach Rick Neuheisel said. "It’s that portion of the season where the guys who are fortunate enough to still be going are excited about it. And there’s a lot to play for especially given the conference. Only three teams are guaranteed a bowl and everyone else is in the same situation, fighting like mad and it’s going to make for some very, very competitive games."

The Bruins will take the next two days off as the coaches do some recruiting. The next practice is Sunday.
