Spread offense taking hold for No. 25 UCLA
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - First-year coach Jim Mora figured it would take some time before No. 25 UCLA looked polished running the spread offense, and he's still not sure the Bruins are there.
What Mora has seen recently makes him believe it won't be long before they are.
UCLA (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) is averaging nearly 560 yards and is off to its best start since 2007, heading into its game Saturday at California.
Johnathan Franklin is the fourth-leading rusher in the country with 139.4 yards a game while redshirt freshman quarterback Brett Hundley ranks 17th in the nation for total offense.
The two combined for 406 yards and four touchdowns in UCLA's 42-14 win at Colorado last week.
