To prepare for his first start this year, Austin Roberts poured over extra game film and put extra work in on the field. But after grabbing only one catch for 28 yards against the Wildcats in his first game as UCLA’s featured tight end, Roberts knows he has much more work to do.

“I just need to be ready to perform at my job as well as helping out the younger guys that are going to be coming into the game too,” Roberts said.
