VIDEO: Sermons on Senior Season

Brandon Sermons talks about his feelings heading into the last few games of his UCLA career and how it feels to finally be playing...

Brandon Sermons:

On his performance against Washington: It felt good to help the team and make sure I got guys down when they needed to go down.

On what Washington did:
They made their plays and we've just got to communicate in the back more and play with better leverage.

On his playing time this fall:
It feels great. Hard work paid off. I stayed with my prayers and made it back out here on the field like I wanted to do.

On his career heading into his final home game:
It's been a tough road, as you know, up and down, this being our last game, me being out there and contributing to the team means a lot so we have to go out there and go out on top as far as the seniors.

On preparing for Arizona State:
We haven't gotten into the film yet because we've been watching Washington. I know we're going to prepare our best and the coaches will come out with some packages that will work on just fine.

On what the secondary needs to improve on:
Communication. We need to communicate more on the backside. Everything will be alright.

On playing in man coverage:
Pretty much all game we played man, a couple times we played zone. We played man considerably a lot. We get more pressure when we play man and that's what we want to do.

On if that's a sign of trust:
If they trust you, they'll throw more man coverages out there to cause more rushes, and the coaches trust us.

On how they've stayed focused:
Out with the old and in with the new. You've just got to take each week, week by week, and prepare yourself best you can and not look too far ahead. Whatever happened in the past, let it go.

On if it's settling in his UCLA career is winding down:
It hasn't really hit me yet, but as the season winds down, you start counting down and you're like 'we only have two games left.' It went by fast. If you blink, you miss it. You have to bring your A-game every game.
