Head coach Jim Mora and the UCLA Bruins have been in preparations for Tuesday’s date with the Virginia Tech Hokies in the Sun Bowl following their 9-3 campaign in 2013.

This past season was yet another bright spot on the resume of Mora who has done a spectacular job with this program since taking over a few years ago. He did have the help of some good players this season, though, and the most important of them all is probably his quarterback Brett Hundley.

In his redshirt sophomore season, Hundley tossed for 2,845 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also rushed for 587 yards and nine scores in leading the Bruins to nearly another Pac-12 South title.

Because of the performance, many are speculating that Hundley might not be back in Westwood next season, and instead may opt to take his talents to the National Football League in 2014.

Naturally, with the program making great strides, Mora really hopes that that’s not the case.


Hundley has received some mixed reviews from scouts. While they love his athleticism, his downfield accuracy is something that he has had some struggles with, which is why Mora isn’t the only one that wants to see him partake in one more collegiate season.
