Forbath, Moore named Lindy’s first-team pre-season All-American


UCLA senior place kicker Kai Forbath and junior free safety Rahim Moore have been named first-team pre-season All-Americans by Lindy’s Football Preview.

Forbath, the Lou Groza Award winner and consensus All-America place kicker in 2009, led the nation in field goals per game (2.15) last season, making 28 of 31 attempts, including all 25 tries inside 50 yards.

Moore, who has started all 25 games of his Bruin career, led the nation with 10 interceptions a year ago, one shy of the UCLA school record. His 10 interceptions were the most by a player in the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division IA) since 2003.

UCLA was the only Pac-10 school to have two first-team selections while Oregon State had one. UCLA was one of just five schools nationally to have two first-team selections, with Georgia, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh being the others.

PS – I did a lengthy feature on Rahim for Lindy’s college football preview; can’t post it here yet, but will when I can.

    saw this on my blackberry the other day. I don’t really appreciate that strip club ads are being displayed on this site. as much as college football fans might fit their target audience, you guys should have that changed.

    If you’re keeping score, USC was ranked 12 and Oregon 15. Last time I checked, it was a team game.
