LINCOLN, Neb. – With a passing game generating 285 yards a game, UCLA will challenge Nebraska’s defensive backs says sophomore corner Chris Jones.
"I'd honestly say this team is another Miami," said Jones. "They got fast receivers. Receivers who can catch the ball."
In case you were wondering, the Canes put up 379 yard through the air against Nebraska.
The Miami comparisons didn’t just stop at the wide receiver spot. Jones compared UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen to a Miami 2014 player.
“He's a little freshman," said Jones. "He can throw. He's a decent thrower. He's a freshman so he has a lot to learn. Just like (Brad) Kaaya last year at Miami. He was a freshman coming in that had a lot to learn."
The little freshman had a solid first-season in 2015, hitting on nearly 60 percent of his throws for 3,351 yards and 20 touchdowns – beating four ranked opponents.
“We are trying to get everything together in practice,” said Jones. “We want to keep everything in a box. We don’t want them to be throwing all over the place.”
