LOS ANGELES (AP) Myles Jack admits he still doesn't always know exactly what he's doing with the football in his hands.

Jack is a linebacker by nature and training, and No. 12 UCLA's dual threat would prefer to be hitting somebody instead of getting hit. When the Bruins ask him to carry the ball, he relies on athleticism, his high-school instincts and a bit of on-field instruction from quarterback Brett Hundley to get where he's supposed to go.

After Jack made a 4-yard touchdown run and a career-high 13 tackles in last week's win over Memphis, UCLA (2-0) is likely to put the ball in his hands more frequently this weekend when the Bruins face Texas in the Dallas Cowboys' massive stadium.
