What to know

The UCLA Bruins have enjoyed the comforts of home their past two games, but now have to go out on the road. UCLA and the California Golden Bears will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 4:30 pm ET Friday at California Memorial Stadium’s FTX Field. If the final no-nothing from the last time they met is any indication, this contest will be decided by the defense.

In almost any match, 45 points would guarantee a win. Not in this one. The Bruins trailed just short of the USC Trojans by a score of 48-45. UCLA led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter but could not hold on to the lead. Despite the loss, they got a solid 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 made for one of the more memorable moments of the night.

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

The Bruins are the heavy favorites in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. Those who burned out picking them against the spread last Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has yet to drop back-to-back games against the spread this season.

California’s win moved them to 4-7 while UCLA’s loss moved them to 8-3. Giving up four turnovers, UCLA had trouble holding the ball. We’ll see if the Golden Bears can exploit this vulnerability.
