Bruins back to work

The first day back after an upsetting loss tells a tale about the mental fortitude of a team. This UCLA team came back to practice with energy and not any head hanging, which is a good sign, because if they have any chance at beating Stanford, they have to play as a confident team, not one laden with doubt. It was a good first day, but has to be followed by another focused effort today.

Neuheisel: "It was a good practice. Guys came out eager, pads were banging. That's what you want in response to a disappointment. You want them to get back off the mat and it was a great start to the week so I'm excited to where we are right now.

"Obviously mindful of the tough challenge we have this weekend given our opponent, but looking forward to playing at home and hopefully correcting a lot of the mistakes from last weekend and play a much better football game. I'm anxious to get started."
