So was UCLA defensive end Cassius Marsh benched, or was he not benched?

Marsh, who was ejected against California last week, played against Stanford on Saturday. He just didn’t play a lot.

Ellis McCarthy and Eddie Vanderdoes started at the defensive ends for the Bruins. But Marsh played intermittently throughout. He finished with four assisted tackles.

Was Marsh being disciplined?

Asked after the game, Coach Jim Mora said, “Some things are for public consumption. There are some things that should stay in-house. That should stay in-house.”
