Throwback Threads

Coach Neuheisel revealed a powder blue throwback jersey that the Bruins will wear in their Nov. 7 matchup with Washington.

The jersey is a throwback to the 1967 uniform worn by Heisman Trophy winner Gary Beban. Beban led UCLA to a 7-2-1 record at quarterback and, according to a UCLA press release, will serve as honorary Homecoming captain.

Several players, including Reggie Carter, wore the throwback jerseys at Media Day.
