Brehaut Comfortable As Bruins QB

WESTWOOD (AP) — Richard Brehaut realized early in life that he wants to be in charge. Even in Little League, he gravitated behind the plate, figuring he could have the most control over the action as a catcher.

That’s a rare bit of good news for UCLA’s football team, which can use all the leadership it can get before another season heads south without a strong leader in the pocket.

Brehaut will make his third start at quarterback for the Bruins (3-4, 1-3 Pac-10) on Saturday against No. 15 Arizona.

He has started two of UCLA’s past three games, but Kevin Prince’s knee surgery last weekend means the Bruins definitely belong to Brehaut for the final five games.

Brehaut knows he’s better prepared for the job than he was last year as a freshman.
