Hundley Goes Down But Neuheisal Steps Up to Lead (12) UCLA to Win

Football Texture/iStock Photo(ARLINGTON, Texas) --When star quarterback Brett Hundley left the game in the first quarter with a injured left elbow it was easy to think UCLA was in trouble. But backup Jerry Neuheisal put all doubts to rest by completing 23 of 30 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns, including the eventual game-winner with three minutes to play, as the No. 12 Bruins nip Texas 20-17 Saturday.

With UCLA down by four with just over three minutes to play, Neuheisal, who is the son of former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisal, completed a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Payton to seal the win.

"My first thought was excitement for Jerry Neuheisel. This kid is everything that's right about college football and about UCLA," UCLA head coach Jim Mora said. "I just thought, `Wow. You couldn't write a better script than this right here. His dad was a great player here. For him to come to Texas and bringing his team from behind to get a win. It's incredible. It's awesome."

Tyrone Swoopes completed 24 of 34 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns for Texas (1-2).

Paul Perkins rushed for 126 yards to help UCLA improve to 3-0 as it heads into conference play.

ESPN: Manziel Fined $12K

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 by the NFL for making an obscene gesture toward the Washington Redskins sideline during a preseason game Monday night, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The incident occurred after Manziel threw an incompletion in the third quarter of the Browns 24-23 loss to the Redskins.                                                                                                                                                  According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Manziel's agent Erik Burkhardt says the rookie hasn't decided whether to appeal the fine.                                                                                                                                                  

The 21-year-old Manziel, who was recently beat out by teammate Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job, was selected with the 22nd overall pick in this year's draft.

Joel Auerbach/Getty Images(SOUTH BEND, Ind.) -- After missing all off last season due to suspension, Everett Golson is Notre Dame's starting quarterback once again.Golson, who in 2012 led the Fighting Irish to the BCS national title game, beat out redshirt freshman Malik Zaire to reclaim the job. The decision was announced Wednesday by Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly."Generally when you look at making that decision, I'm using from January through right now as the basis of that decision, so winter workouts, how he handled himself with the team, our workouts, his spring practice and then his leadership in the summer and in camp here," Kelly said. "I think he's put himself in a position to get that opportunity to be our starter against Rice."Golson, 21, was suspended for the 2013 season for what he called "poor academic judgement."In 2012, the 6-foot, 200-pound Golson completed 58.8 percent of his passes for 2,405 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions.
