Los Angeles Teams

A path seems to be carving out nicely for the Rams, who have to win at least three, probably four, of their last seven games to win the NFC West (not easy, given that they have the NFL's second-hardest remaining schedule). The Rams already held a one-game lead over the Seahawks, and now Seattle will be without both SS Kam Chancellor and CB Richard Sherman the rest of this year. The Rams, NFL leaders in point differential, remain completely healthy. It's as important as anything.

It was a much better second half for UCLA, which easily separated from South Carolina State to win 96-68. Freshman Chris Smith (15 points) was impressive, while G.G. Solomon was plus-33 in 27 minutes.
