It's been over a decade since UCLA went to Cal and beat the Bears at Memorial Stadium. A sloppy win over Washington St. has opened up some old wounds, but the Bruins are still riding a three-game win streak as they head up to Berkeley for a game versus Cal. At 3-2, the Bruins are in position to have a successful season, but this Saturday can perhaps do more than anything else to help UCLA get to that goal.
We'll take a look at what UCLA struggled with on Saturday and what they need to do to beat Cal on the road for the first time since 1998. The Golden Bears got beat up badly by Nevada's pistol offense, but UCLA's isn't at the same level as Nevada's and the Bears will have Mike Mohamed back. How does all of that change what the Bruins will do on Saturday? With a trip to Oregon to follow Saturday's game, UCLA is looking at perhaps their toughest stretch of the season and getting a win over Cal will not only buck recent history, but go a long ways to changing possibility of the Bruins getting to six or seven wins.
