Rematch About To Begin

LAS VEGAS - Kickoff is just a few minutes away here at Sam Boyd Stadium for the Las Vegas Bowl game between BYU and UCLA.

The game is a rematch of an earlier-season game won by UCLA 27-17 at the Rose Bowl. But the teams have headed in opposite directions since that meeting.

Injury-riddled UCLA ended the season 6-6 and had its head coach Karl Dorrell fired. Defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker is the interim head coach while the Bruins still search for a permanent replacement. Walker is a candidate.

BYU finished the season on a nine-game winning streak and captured its second straight undefeated Mountain West Conference title.

The Cougars felt they should have beaten UCLA the first time if not for turnovers. We'll see if they can make good on their claim.
