You’re all set! UCLA senior tight end Marcedes Lewis noticed something interesting on a critical third-and-long late in the third quarter against Oklahoma. He ran a corner route, and a linebacker and a safety followed him. Bruins receiver Andrew Baumgartner saw the same thing, so when he caught the ball in the middle of the field, he knew it was an easy run for the first down.

But he discovered he doesn’t need to catch the ball to impact the game. “It’s lovely,” said Lewis, whose 14 catches is twice as many as the next Bruin. “You can beat them when you’re catching the ball, and when you’re not catching the ball.” San Diego State used single coverage, and Lewis set career highs with seven catches for 131 yards. Rice double-teamed Lewis, and Olson picked apart the coverage to complete 17 passes to other players. The Bruins scored 63 points. “When they work on Marcedes (with a double-team), everybody has an opportunity,” UCLA offensive coordinator Tom Cable said. “It will help us either running it or throwing it.

I’m starting to realize that you can’t do it.” last_img read more
