The offensive line was a considerable concern heading into 2013.
Last year in 2012, Hundley was sacked an eye-popping 52 times. It was a miracle that the signal-caller didn't suffer an injury.
The young line is a year older, and improvement is apparent.
Left guard Xavier Su'a-Filo has continued to perform at an extremely high level. He's definitely headed towards an All-Conference season when it's all said and done.
The unit is No. 50 nationally in total rushing yards with a respectable 223.4 yards per contest. Pass protection is still somewhat of an issue. Hundley has been sacked 10 times on the season thus far.
UCLA took a blow with a season-ending injury to starting left tackle Torian White. As a result, right tackle Simon Goines was moved over to the left side. True freshman Caleb Benenoch has taken over the right tackle starting job.
Next to Benenoch is another true freshman, Alex Redmond. The Los Alamitos, Calif., product has really impressed with his physicality and nastiness.
It's not an ideal scenario to have two true freshmen starting on the offensive line.
However, it's a group that has improved from a season ago. Playing with consistency should be the mantra with regards to this unit.
