UCLA Vs. Houston: Kevin Prince Is Starting Quarterback, Richard Brehaut Will Play Too

The UCLA Bruins will start quarterback Kevin Prince in Saturday's season opener against Houston, according to the team. Junior Richard Brehaut, who was also in contention for the starting job, will not start but will see playing time on Saturday.

Prince, also a junior, played just five games last season before suffering a knee injury. He went on to get both arthroscopic surgery and a microfracture procedure done and will get his first start since then.

Brehaut appeared in nine games last season and started seven of them in the absence of Prince. He finished ninth in the Pac-10 in passing yards and had a couple of impressive games to close the 2010 season, highlighted by his 321-yard, three-touchdown performance against Arizona State in the second-to-last game of the season.

Though the starting quarterback has been named, don't assume that the controversy is over just yet. Prince could claim a stronger hold on the job with a strong performance, but Brehaut could complicate things with a good game of his own. We'll have to wait and see how both individuals play, but for now we can be assured that Prince will start and that Brehaut will get his shot to impress later in the game.
