Against Iowa last week - which
UCLA won handily — they cast
precedent to the winds and used a
five-man line. They used the more
orthodox six downfield though, and
also when Iowa was dangerously
near the goal line.
Another thing Spaulding is apt
to spring is the spread play, seldom
seen in college games. Oliver used
one against Washington State. In
Spaulding’s “pet,’’ one or both ends
and one or both halves are spread
wide, giving the back an option of
either running or passing.
