UCLA's experienced offensive line has dramatically improved in 2015
During UCLA head coach Jim Mora's first three seasons with the Bruins, his program allowed a conference-worst 128 sacks.
This season, UCLA has allowed only nine -- which ranks ahead of Utah's 11 for best in the Pac-12. Now veterans, UCLA's offensive line had collected more offensive starts than any other offensive line in FBS. Starting center Jake Brendel will earn his 48th career start for UCLA vs. OSU, which is tied for most in program history.
“It’s just the cohesion as a group as a whole,” said Brendel, via OC Register. “The offense and the offensive line have really come together and trusted each other and built a bond you can’t find in other places, being able to pull and play people in.”
Alex Redmond, right guard, rejoins the team vs. Oregon State after "personal reasons" sidelined him vs. Colorado.
