UCLA 24, BYU 23: Linebacker Isaako Savaiinaea

UCLA linebacker Isaako Savaiinaea was thrown into extended action against BYU after Kenny Young was ejected for targeting. He finished with a team-high 14 tackles, as well as his first career sack in the 24-23 win.

“The win still hasn’t hit me yet,” he said. “It came down to the last second. It was one of those — can’t describe how you’re feeling right now.”

    Defensive player of the game. Stepped right in and played his butt off. Attributes to the depth and talent this team has. If there’s a way to keep Isaako, Kenny, & Myles on the field at the same time watch out!

      All they would have to do is put Myles back on the outside. Isaako played very well last night.

        Honestly, they barely play Myles inside as it is. This looks more like a 4-3 than a 3-4 most of the time.

          Good point. He was out in coverage quite a bit last night.
