Bruin Bites: Arizona Game Day Edition

The Saturday morning edition of the Bruin Bites round-up of the various bits and pieces from around the UCLA-iverse, while providing an open thread for the college football action leading up to the UCLA/Arizona kickoff.

Stephen Dunn

It's Saturday and the Bruins are going to be in action tonight against the high-flying Arizona Wildcats. And what a difference a year makes: last season, the Bruins took on a toothless Mildcat squad in the desert, only to be punked on a nationally televised game, with ugly scenes of Bruins fighting on the field. Rick and random-interim-coach-in-Tucson are out, Mora and RichRod are in, and the Bruins and Wildcats will be playing to decide who will take the lead in the Pac-12 South (Oregon is going to smoke the Trojans tonight). All signs point to this game being a total offensive shoot-out, assuming of course, concussed Arizona QB Matt Scott can actually see the field straight. But hey, what's a kid's health when the Pac-12 South lead is at stake, right Rich?

With that, let's turn to the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your Bruin Bites to get this Saturday morning of college football started.
