LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Jim Mora can't imagine a more difficult situation for his UCLA football team.
Less than week after the death of receiver Nick Pasquale, the 16th-ranked Bruins visit No. 23 Nebraska on Saturday.
Mora says the Bruins must control their emotions and remain poised in a tough environment in Lincoln. He said the game can help his players channel their grief over the death of Pasquale, who was struck by a vehicle Sunday while he was walking in his hometown of San Clemente, Calif.
Both teams should know a lot more about themselves after Saturday, particularly on defense.
UCLA is 1-0 after beating Nevada 58-20 two weeks ago. The Huskers are 2-0 after last week's 56-13 win over Southern Mississippi.
