what to know

The UCLA Bruins have enjoyed the comforts of home in their last two games, but now they must go on the road. UCLA and the California Golden Bears will square off in a Pac-12 battle at 4:30 pm ET on Friday at FTX Field in California Memorial Stadium. If the nothing-to-nothing finish from the last time they met is any indication, this contest will be decided by the defense.

In almost any game, 45 points almost guarantee a win. Not in this one. The Bruins trailed just behind the USC Trojans by a score of 48-45. UCLA led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, but was unable to maintain the lead. Despite the loss, they got a strong performance from QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson, who passed for four TDs and 309 yards on 38 attempts as well as rushing for two TDs and 75 yards. Thompson-Robinson’s 55-yard touchdown throw to WR Kazmeir Allen in the fourth quarter was one of the most memorable moments of the night.

Speaking of close games: The Stanford Cardinal was up 17-6 over California going into the fourth quarter last Saturday, but California stole the win from right under Stanford’s nose in the final minutes for a final score of 27-20. Golden Bears RB Jaydn Ott looked strong as he scored a rushing touchdown. One of those touchdowns came with 1:01 remaining to put California ahead for good.

The Bruins are the favorites in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 10 points. Those burned by picking them against the spread last Saturday should keep in mind that the team has yet to lose back-to-back games against the spread this season.

California’s win lifted them to 4-7 while UCLA’s loss dropped them to 8-3. Allowing four turnovers, UCLA had struggled to hold the ball. We’ll see if the Golden Bears can exploit that vulnerability.
