UCLA

TEAM THEME: PUSHING THE RE-START BUTTON
After winning 9 games three straight years for the first time in school history, head coach Jim Mora troops ran out of gas losing 3 of their final four games to finish the season with 8 wins. Nonetheless, eight players drafted were this season, the third most behind Ohio State (12) and Clemson (9). FR RB Soso Jamabo, the No. 1 running back in the 2015 recruiting class, played second fiddle and backed up Paul Perkins (NYG) last year. Jamabo excelled in his supporting role to Perkins last year, averaging 6.1 yards per carry on 66 attempts. He forms a super sophomore duo with young phenom quarterback Josh "Chosen" Rosen... and that's a good start.

STAT YOU WILL LIKE: UCLA has not won a PAC-12 championship since 1998.

Play On: vs. Washington State (10/15) - *KEY as a dog
