UCLA goes up to Utah for the first time in Pac-12 play for their first road game. Utah is improved over last year but it should not be enough to beat the Bruins. UCLA comes in with a 7 game win streak led by Shabazz Muhammad who has scored over 20 points five times during that streak. Utah will do its best to slow Shabazz and the Bruins down.

The game begins at 6:32 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Networks without an analysis (technically Ernie Kent fills the role). The official UCLA preview is here. The Bruins Nation preview is here. The Utah preview is here. You can follow the game on the game-tracker here.

Will Utah be able to keep the score under 65? Will Travis Wear tire from too many minutes or will Tony Parker get a chance to make an impression? Will Kyle Anderson have a big game on the boards? The only sure thing is UCLA must win this road game which on paper is one of the easiest in the Pac-12.

Go Bruins.
