Mora confident in Fairbairn

Ka’imi Fairbairn has yet to hit a field goal from beyond 35 yards, but Jim Mora said he still trusts his freshman kicker.

“He’s been the same guy every day out here,” Mora said. “That’s why we felt very confident on Saturday that he would put it through. He doesn’t change.”

Mora added that his “line of demarcation” on UCLA’s final drive at Arizona State was from 35 yards out; had the Bruins only driven that far, he would’ve have given Fairbairn a shot at winning the game from beyond 50 yards.

    Fairbairn is clearly more confident in Fairbairn, which leads to the coaches being more confident. All his recent kicks have been straight and immediately higher trajectory. Hopefully, he is past his freshman jitters and will prove to be the kicker we expected from his high school results.
