LOS ANGELES (AP) - Although Jim Mora's first season at UCLA is off to a largely stellar start, the veteran NFL coach knows he still has much to learn about the college game.
As it turns out, so do his young Bruins.
California exposed many of those knowledge gaps in the Bruins' blowout loss in Berkeley last week, knocking UCLA (4-2, 1-2 Pac-12) off its roll and out of the rankings.
Mora is hoping UCLA can fix many of those holes before the Bruins begin the second half of the season with Saturday's visit from Utah for their only home game in October.
Mora and his staff have injected energy and innovation into the Bruins, but the head coach is still a novice at motivating and handling teenage players. It's all keeping him busy.
