Sydney Leroux talks trash to Colin Kaepernick over UCLA-Nevada game
Sydney Leroux couldn’t resist sending some trash talk Colin Kaepernick’s way as she watched her UCLA Bruins take down his Nevada Wolfpack on Saturday evening.
Leroux, a former UCLA soccer star from 2008-2011 and current forward on the US Women’s National Team, sent a little chin music Kaep’s way while the Bruins were turning the game into a blowout during the second half:
Hey @Kaepernick7 what's the score of that UCLA Nevada game?

The game was actually close at halftime — the Bruins were only up 17-13 — but UCLA turned it on for the second half and blew out the Wolfpack 41-7 to win 58-20.
Kaepernick, a four-year starter at Nevada, had no response for Leroux’s taunt.
Leroux and Kaepernick are actually friendly with each other. They follow each other on Twitter and were both featured in ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue. They were at an event in May and took a picture together, leading Leroux to crack a joke about all the tattoos both of them have:
I don't like admitting defeat but I'm pretty sure the guy on the right may have more tattoos than me. pic.twitter.com/Fhie4RkXl7

There were past rumors about Leroux dating NFL defensive star J.J. Watt, though that no longer appears to be the case. Leroux has been linked to another NFL star recently.
