UCLA Football: Rick Neuheisel Reacts To Three Kevin Prince Interceptions Against Texas

Kevin Prince proved he was healthy in practice leading into the game on Saturday afternoon against the Texas Longhorns, earning the start. Yet, after three interceptions in the first quarter, Prince was benched and never saw action again in UCLA's 49-20 loss. It's safe to say Richard Brehaut now sits atop the depth chart for the UCLA Bruins.

Head coach Rick Neuheisel tabbed Prince, hoping to replicate their success on the ground in last year's 34-12 win over Texas, when UCLA ran for 264 yards. "I felt like we could run the ball. Last year, we beat Texas throwing, I think, nine passes. I thought we could run and control the ball. Unfortunately, we threw three interceptions in the first quarter. It's disappointing. We will try and grow from it and work to be better the next time out," Neuheisel said after the game.

Brehaut completed eight of 19 passes for 150 yards in relief of Prince, and on the season has completed 38 of 68 passes for 559 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions. "I thought Richard [Brehaut] played well. I'm anxious to look at the tape. He settled the offense down. He has surged to the lead, no question," Neuheisel said.

UCLA battles Oregon State in Corvallis, Oregon next Saturday.
