Sept. 15 -- Junior UCLA cornerback Marcus Rios talks about where he could improve as a player going forward...

Marcus Rios talks about starting his first two games, where he could improve going forward, and how he thinks the secondary matches up against BYU.

On UNLV film:

We looked forward to it, we had our goals and we accomplished it. There are a lot of things we can improve on.  We did what we did, our main focus was be physical, stop the run and stop the pass.

On what they could take away from the game:

We take it a lot.  There are always ways we can improve and always willing and ready to adapt to any situation and that's what we'll focus on. Our physicality will be the same regardless of who's at quarterback.

On if the anticipation for a ranked opponent makes preparation different:

We prepare the same for each and every opponent we face, so our preparation is the same.

On BYU film:

I've seen a little this morning.  They're a real big team.  Their receivers have height and also physical.  We have to bring our physicality like we always do each and every week.

On BYU's Hail Mary's:

The dude's were covered, they were just real good passes. Sometimes it happens like that.  Its being prepared, and we work on those every day in practice, so we'll be ready.

On two starts:

It feels great. I'll never feel comfortable, I'll always find ways to improve, but its getting better each and every day. Its an adjustment, I'm being pushed every day. There are always ways I can improve, each and every day, and I look at ways I can improve and get better. Being more physical, my technique was a little off.  Little mental errors that stop me from making a play.
