Moore leaves with concussion
STANFORD, Calif. -- UCLA free safety Rahim Moore, the nation's leader in interceptions and passes defended heading into Saturday, suffered a concussion against Stanford after making a late hit.
He left the game early in the second quarter and didn't return in the Bruins' 24-16 loss. Coach Rick Neuheisel said afterward he hopes Moore will return next week against Oregon.
"Hopefully he's going to be OK," Neuheisel said. "He was just trying to make a play. I can't fault the officials."
Moore, a sophomore with five interceptions and nine passes defended, jarred his entire upper body when he hit Fleener.
