The entire secondary will be lumped together, primarily based on the fact that the unit was not tested much.
Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo went 19 for 32, but only for 164 yards. There wasn't much of an attempt to stretch the field vertically.
What Fajardo did do was run the football. It forced the secondary to come up and make tackles in space. Of the starting quartet (Fabian Moreau, Randall Goforth, Ishmael Adams, Anthony Jefferson), Goforth and Moreau looked the best at securing the ball carriers.
Head coach Jim Mora did tell Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times that the unit "played well."
"They kept the ball in front of them, made plays, and didn't get out of position," Mora said.
Mora also kept things in perspective. He mentioned that the unit "wasn't really challenged."
"I don't know if it's a real assessment just because the ball wasn't up in the air a whole lot," he said.
The secondary did get some much needed experience, which was positive. Another plus is, like Mora said, no big plays were allowed.
UCLA's secondary should expect to face a stern test in two weeks, when the squad travels to Lincoln for a game against Nebraska.
