Here is the full statement from the Pac-12 in regards to the helmet-to-helmet hit initiated by UCLA's Tahaan Goodman to Stanford's Francis Owusu on Saturday. It was determined during the game it was not targeting and confirmed again after further review. "Our conference office review of the play involving the tackle by UCLA's Tahaan Goodman of Stanford's Francis Owusu during Saturday night's game confirmed that the tackle was legal per NCAA playing rules. Per NCAA rules, the Stanford player was no longer a defenseless player once he caught the ball, established himself, and turned upfield. At that point the Stanford player became a ball carrier and was not deemed defenseless, which meant that NCAA Playing Rule 9-1-4 would not apply (hits to the head or neck area of a defenseless player). When analyzing NCAA Playing Rule 9-1-3, which states "No player shall target and make forcible contact against an opponent with the crown (top) of his helmet" it was determined that the crown of the helmet was not used. While there certainly was helmet to helmet contact, neither the game officials on the field or the replay officials called targeting because the contact was with the front of the helmet and not the crown (top) of the helmet. Additionally, we send in every targeting call and replay review of potential targeting calls, to the NCAA for review and feedback. "The Pac-12 Conference holds student-athlete health and safety to the highest regard and regrets the injury sustained on this play. We have been active in adopting player safety rules in games and practices, and have been actively involved in promoting and funding research that supports student-athlete well being and safety. Going forward, and in line with Coach David Shaw's concerns about this play, we expect additional discussion around the targeting rule during the offseason review process and will be an active participant in discussions to further reduce helmet to helmet contact."

UCLA announced it will host Fresno State in 2024. That makes three games between the two schools on future schedules with games already scheduled for 2018 and 2021. The Bruins have been one of the more ambitious scheduling teams in college football of late. They kicked off a home-and-home at Texas A&M this year and also have games lined up against Oklahoma (2018, 2019), LSU (2021, 2024), Michigan (2022, 2023) and Georgia (2025, 2026) among several other respected Group of 5 opponents.

Highly-touted UCLA true freshman LB Mique Juarez is enrolled in classes and will meet with coach Jim Mora later this week, UCLA LB coach Scott White said. "The plan hasn't changed at all. The plan has always been for him to be back with us," White said. Juarez has been away from the team for about seven weeks for personal reasons. White said the staff wants to make sure he's ok as a person before bringing football back into the equation.

Understandably, UCLA coach Jim Mora was not happy with how the running game operated against Stanford. The Bruins ran for just 77 yards, but after watching the game back Mora said "the game plan was as sound as it could be." The problem, he said, was that there were some "enormous" holes that just weren't hit. It appears Bolu Olurunfunmi could be in line for more playing time after averaging 4.6 yards per carry (51 yards on 11 carries). Nate Starks (10 carries, 24 yards) and Soso Jamabo (7 carries, 17 yards) weren't nearly as effective. "You'll still see all three, but you'll see less of two and more of one," Mora said.

Thoughts from SEC assistant after Les Miles' firing: "It'll be open season with LSU's recruits," the coach said. "Their class was so good. It'll be tough to pry some of their in-state guys away, but this will help others go after their out-of-state guys . This could have just changed Dylan Moses' recruitment big time." Moses, a five-star athlete from Bradenton (Florida) IMG Academy, is originally from Louisiana and is considering LSU, Alabama, Miami, Texas and UCLA.
