LOS ANGELES (AP) - Although Jim Mora has done more in 10 games to close UCLA's football gap with Southern California than Rick Neuheisel accomplished in the previous four years, the Bruins' first-year coach wants none of the credit.
Mora isn't taking any bows while the No. 17 Bruins (8-2, 5-2) are getting ready to play for the Pac-12 South title.
Yet UCLA has returned to national relevance during the brief tenure of Mora, the longtime NFL coach who has adapted to the college game almost seamlessly.
His players' next goal is to put some parity back in their rivalry with the No. 21 Trojans (7-3, 5-3), who are ranked lower than UCLA in the Los Angeles schools' annual meeting for the first time since 2001.
