Practice report: Wednesday quick hits

By Peter Yoon

UCLA practiced through an unusually hot afternoon in Westwood, going in full pads for the second practice of the bye week.

The Bruins will practice again Thursday and then take Friday and Saturday off before beginning game-week preparations for Arizona on Sunday. UCLA plays in Tucson on Thursday, Oct. 20, so the game week gets moved up a couple of days.

"I thought our guys pushed through and we got a lot accomplished," coach Rick Neuheisel said. "I think we’ll feel real good about it when we look at the film. We’ll try to get one more of those tomorrow and then give them a couple of days off, get their legs back and away we go on Sunday."

Neuheisel said he and the coaching staff would spend the weekend recruiting.

"We'll try to get out and about to all the local hotshots and make sure they know the Bruins are alive and well and engaging all the top student athletes in the area," Neuheisel said. "It’s a busy time, an important time and I think an exciting time as well, so looking forward to it."
