It was pretty much anticipated, but Head Coach Karl Dorrell announced his starter for the season opener against Utah following Monday's morning practice, with redshirt sophomore Ben Olson getting the call over Pat Cowan...

As expected, Ben Olson has been named the starting quarterback for UCLA's September 2 opener against Utah.

UCLA head coach Karl Dorrell met with both quarterbacks on Sunday night to deliver the news.

Dorrell said that Pat Cowan was disappointed but that he's a fighter.

For Olson, it will be a much anticipated first start. BruinReportOnline will have more later, included video from Dorrell and Olson.
