UCLA_Jim_Mora_2013UCLA coach Jim Mora and the Bruins returned to practice Monday for the first time since the death of walk-on receiver Nick Pasquale, who was hit by a car and killed while walking along a street in the early morning hours Sunday.

The 20-year-old Pasquale played in the final offensive series in UCLA’s season-opening victory over Nevada on Aug. 31. The Bruins were off last weekend and Pasquale had gone home to visit his family in San Clemente, Calif.

“It’s a very tragic time, a very difficult time,” Mora said after the No. 16 Bruins practiced in preparation for this weekend’s game at No. 23 Nebraska.
