The UCLA defense will try to contain Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong in Saturday night’s Foster Farms Bowl. Bruins defensive coordinator Tom Bradley says they are concerned about Armstrong’s ability to make plays outside of the pocket.
“He’s a heck of an athlete and he is somebody we are going to be smart about and understand leverage on the football with him”, said Bradley. “He does an excellent job with not only his feet but he throws and runs and does so many different things for them.”
Bradley says he is hoping the defense gets off to a good start and that is always a concern in a bowl game.
“It is not something we can ease into with them and we have been preaching that since we started practicing for this game.”
UCLA enters the game as about a touchdown favorite.
