UCLA is off to a good start in 2013, winning its first two games of the year, including a 41-21 romp over Nebraska at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln. Cross-town rival USC, on the other hand, is struggling a bit out of the gate with a 2-1 record and a home loss to Washington State. All of this pleases Bruins wide receiver Shaq Evans.
Evans recently made an appearance on ESPN Radio 710-AM in Los Angeles, and he gloated about the Trojans' issues and UCLA's chances against Lane Kiffin's team this year. Per Inside Troy:
Knowing that we're going to beat them again this year ... especially two years ago when they beat us 50-0, we owe them a little bit. This year, we're going to try to embarrass them, honestly.
They're struggling. It's just awesome to see that. I hate them. So I'm just loving it.
Well, Evans certainly doesn't mince words. His play on the field has been solid so far -- nine catches for 178 yards and two scores -- but after such a bold statement, he and his teammates better back it up over the course of the season.
