Bruin Bites: UCLA-Arizona Gameday Edition

It's Thursday, and it's time for some nationally televised, prime-time Bruin football.  The Bruins are out in Tucson to take on the now Stoops-free Arizona Mildcats Wildcats.  Game time is at 6:00 p.m. PST on ESPN.  Yeah, that's right: a nationally televised Thursday night away game for UCLA.  Rick hasn't exactly done well in these games, but facing a 1-5 Arizona squad with an interim head coach in a very weak division, Rick finds himself at 3-3 and in the middle of a slate of games (Washington State, Arizona, Cal, Arizona State, Utah, and Colorado) where Rick absolutely must win 5 out of 6.  In terms of talent, there is absolutely no reason for UCLA to lose tonight.

The pre-game thread should be going up around 2 p.m., but before we get to that, let's take a look at some of the bits and pieces of football news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Those are your pre-game Bruin Bites.  Sit tight and the pre-game thread will be up this afternoon.  For now, if you want to duck out of doing real work at the office, feel free to fire away with your thoughts in the open thread or check out the BN previews of Arizona (here and here)  Finally, if you haven't done so already, make sure you get your pre-game guesses in before kick-off at 6 p.m. PST.
