SAM BROWN, BOB DAVENPORT, JIM BROWN (see opposite page).
BOB BERGDAHL (44), qb: Calls signals unless Knox is in game. Very good blocker, strong and aggressive, leads plays well. Outstanding linebacker.
JIM DECKER (30), rhb: UCLA's most underrated player. A good wingback, great blocker and receiver, tremendous on defense.
(18), lhb: Forget Harvey; this boy is a great football player. Really outstanding passer and punter. Smart signal caller, does bang-up job on defense.
STEVE PALMER (53), c: One of country's best centers; big, strong, mean and a terrific linebacker. He has to be good to keep Jim Matheny (51) on bench.
HARDIMAN CURETON (60), lg: Made some All-Americas. Great on defense, hard charger. Pulls and leads plays on offense, a standout blocker but has only fair speed.
ROGER WHITE (78), lt: Quick and agile but not big for a tackle. Fair offensively and defensively, may be UCLA's weak spot.
