PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Life has changed for UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley.

The redshirt sophomore has gone from the savior expected to revive a floundering program to the starter who took the Bruins to a 9-5 record, the Pac-12 South Division title and a win over crosstown rival USC.

The mob of fans seeking autographs and photos at the end of the 68-play scrimmage Saturday at the Rose Bowl to conclude spring practice reflected as much.

Now, as second-year coach Jim Mora said, the challenge for Hundley and the entire UCLA team is to meet the rising expectations that are coming.
