UCLA Vs. Stanford: Richard Brehaut The Starting Bruins QB

The UCLA Bruins will have Richard Brehaut starting at quarterback against the Stanford Cardinal.

The UCLA Bruins look like they're standing pat in their commitment to quarterback Richard Brehaut. Adam Maya of the Orange County Register reports that head coach Rick Neuheisel that Brehaut is starting this Saturday against the Stanford Cardinal. But he might have to do more than he did last Saturday to hold onto the starting job for long. 

Brehaut completed 63.6% of his passes for a pretty impressive 13.3 yards per attempt in Corvallis, but he only threw the ball 11 times, as UCLA seemed firmly commitment to running the football and taking as much time off the clock to secure victory against the Bruins. It's unlikely that the UCLA offense can get away with that type of run-pass imbalance in Palo Alto against a top ten team like the Cardinal. Brehaut will have to connect with Josh Smith, Nelson Rosario and Taylor Embree a little bit more than seven times Saturday night if they plan on pulling off a monumental upset.
