Special Order—Subject to Availability
The history of UCLA football is a continuous story of highs and lows, ups and downs. Every year from 1919 to today, UCLA has fielded a team, and though the expectations have changed through the years, the goals have not. The single greatest goal in sports is to win your next game. When a team strings enough wins together, a magical season is born.

In the UCLA Football Encyclopedia, Stueve doesn’t miss a beat in his coverage of all the magical seasons, as well as the not-so-magical seasons, from the inaugural one through 2017. He covers the UCLA coaches, as well as the players who have left a lasting legacy. Along the way, he captures all the details about the wins, the losses, the individual and team records, the assistant coaches, and the players that built the foundation of the program.

The story of UCLA football is often a story of "almost," and in this book, readers will relive the times UCLA simply refused to settle for "almost." These tales feature legends Fred Cozens, Red Sanders, Tommy Prothro, Jim Mora, and countless other Bruins stars, past and present. Stueve also recounts the upbringing of Donn Moomaw and that of Maurice Jones-Drew. Complete with dozens of historical photographs, this is the most extensive book ever written on UCLA football and a must-read for every UCLA football fan nationwide.
