Chris Foster talks Rick Neuheisel and UCLA's bowl chances

November 17, 2011 |  2:20 pm


Times UCLA reporter Chris Foster sits down with CineSport's Noah Coslov to discuss Rick Neuheisel's job security and the Bruins' Pac-12 South chances.

As Foster wrote earlier this week:

"So the best call for the UCLA football team this season was made by the conference. When the two-division format was created, top-10 Stanford was sent north to battle it out with top-10 Oregon.

"With USC ineligible to play in the conference title game, the South Division was an easier road.

"UCLA and Arizona State are 4-3 in the conference, making them the cream of a thin crop with USC sidelined. Utah is 3-4.

"We are in it, and we are excited about staying in it," Neuheisel said.

"Oregon and Stanford each could finish 8-1 in conference play, and 11-1 overall, yet only one plays for the conference title. Oregon all but wrapped up that spot by beating Stanford on Saturday.

"UCLA versus Oregon in Eugene, Ore., remains on the table, though Neuheisel said, "We are not deviating from our one game at a time" mantra.

"Yet, facts are facts. UCLA needs to win only its remaining two games to go to the conference title game.
