Here is what CBS Sports had to say about the Bruins after Week 1.
The only thing more impressive than the performance of Hundley (202 yards passing, 68 yards rushing) was the play of RB Johnathan Franklin. The senior running back opened his season with 215 yards and three touchdowns against Rice. The showing earned Franklin the Pac-12's offensive player of the week award. If UCLA shucks the Cornhuskers Saturday, poll voters might begin to notice there's a team in Los Angeles that's not USC.
