No. 13 UCLA ready for visit from Huskies

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Myles Jack knows everybody is wondering what he’ll do for an encore.

UCLA’s freshman linebacker turned tailback isn’t expecting to run wild when Washington visits the Rose Bowl on Friday night. He’s just hoping to contribute to a win over his hometown team on the 13th-ranked Bruins’ path back to the Pac-12 title game.

Jack supplemented his growing defensive presence with a jaw-dropping, 120-yard rushing performance at Arizona last week, and the Bruins (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) likely will need all the offense they can get to take on the Huskies (6-3, 3-3), who have scored 100 points in their last two games.

Even if Jack doesn’t take a handoff against Washington, nobody will be surprised if a high-scoring contest breaks out between two teams still hoping for big finishes.
