Arizona Wildcats at UCLA Bruins (-9.5): O/U 68.5 (-112/-109)
Last time out, Arizona visited the Washington Huskies and left with a 44-27 defeat. This game was nowhere near as close as the final score says, as Washington led 37-0 going into the final frame when they took the foot off the pedal and allowed Arizona to score 27 points. QB Dylan Morris went 15/25 for 230 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Washington ran the ball a staggering 45 times and gained 233 yards, a 5.2 average, and four touchdowns. The Huskies defense allowed 331 total yards and forced one Wildcats fumble.
The UCLA Bruins hosted the then #11 Oregon Ducks and lost a tight 38-35 ballgame. This game was tight the entire time, but UCLA could never make the key plays when they needed to and could not overtake Oregon in the final quarter. Backup QB went 19/31 for 195 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Running back Demetric Felton exploded for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries. The UCLA defense allowed 422 total yards and forced one Oregon fumble.
Series History: Arizona won the meeting last season, but UCLA still holds the all-time series 25-17-2.
CFB Predictions: I like UCLA -9.5 Saturday night.
