Bruins set their eyes on Trojans

Only a quick run thru and walk thru remain for the Bruins. Then it is kickoff to what seems like an endless season of big games. No doubt about it though, this game coming up on Saturday is the biggest one of the year. There is a lot at stake for the players and the fans. For the players, they don't have to hear their rivals at parties woof it up about how they won. For the fans, it's about yearlong bragging rights.

UCLA players and fans haven't had much to brag about over the last decade, but with each contest hope is eternal. After Wednesday's practice, UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel met with the media.

Neuheisel: "Good practice and it's exciting to be getting closer to the contest, but still lots of work to do and given the Thanksgiving Holiday we have some challenges ahead, but we will get into practice early on Thanksgiving morning, get our work done and then get these kids home with their families for the Thanksgiving Holiday and hopefully with a little rest with their families thinking about the game, thinking about the excitement of Saturday Night and get back here and tuning it up on Friday and then get ready to roll."
