It's our first Saturday morning with college football in the BN 3.0 universe, but as usual, we're going to get our day full of college football action started with the regular Saturday morning round-up of the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse. Our Bruins will have to bounce back on the road after the disappointing loss against Oregon State at the Rose Bowl. Coverage begins at 3 p.m. PT, and if you aren't able to join gbruin and the other Bruins in Colorado for the game in Boulder, it will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.

Last weekend was a pretty disappointing effort, which has become all-too-common for UCLA football during Chianti Dan's lost decade of mediocrity thanks to the diseased loser culture he's let fester at the Morgan Center. Let's see if Jim Mora is really the catalyst for change in this program or if the Bruins are going to stumble through another listless, mediocre season of football (which has been the one consistent feature under Chianti Dan). The Bruins are heavily favored, so while it's a road game, this is a game that the Bruins should be able to put away early, if they can pick up their focus and intensity, and eliminate the mistakes and lack of urgency that cost them last week.

So, with that said, 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. Kick-off is slated for 3pm Pacific, and we will have our usual set of gamethreads up for the game. For now, this will be our pre-game college football open thread. Get fired up and fire away with your thoughts, comments, etc. in the open thread below.
