LOS ANGELES -- UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince did not practice Tuesday and was still awaiting the results of an MRI exam he had on his right knee. His status for the Bruins' game Thursday at Oregon (No. 2 BCS, No. 1 AP) remains uncertain.

"Kevin, again, rested," coach Rick Neuheisel said. "And again, it will be a game-time decision. He wants to play and thinks he can play, but we'll just have to wait and see."

According to Neuheisel, Prince had a second MRI exam taken by the doctor that operated on his knee in high school. Prince injured the same knee in the first quarter of the first game of his senior season at Encino Crespi. He missed the rest of that season.

The results of the second MRI were also unknown.

Prince originally injured his knee in UCLA's win at Texas on Sept. 25. Sophomore Richard Brehaut, who earned the majority of the first-unit reps Tuesday, filled in for him a week later against Washington State. Prince made the start in the Bruins' 35-7 loss at California on Oct. 9.

"Obviously, you'd like to have everybody full speed and so forth, but I trust him and he tells me he's feeling good and feels like he can," Neuheisel said. "We're just trying to be safe and trying to get him to the dance."
