The UCLA Bruins suited up in new all-white last night in their game against the USC Trojans, and now it looks their uniforms were a white flag of surrender. The Bruins' 50-0 defeat certainly looks like it could be the end for coach Rick Neuheisel.

Sources at UCLA are telling The Daily News and the Los Angeles Times that Neuheisel will only make it to next week's Pacific-12 Conference against the Oregon Ducks — and then he's probably going to get canned.

Athletic Director Dan Guerrero called the Bruins' loss "devastating," but he put off any questions about Neuheisel's status for another week: "He's carried this program all year long; I indicated we'd evaluate this program at the end of the season," Guerrero told the Daily News. "We have one game left and we'll do that."

Some fans are demanding change much sooner.
