Bruin Bites: UCLA-UC Berkeley Game Day Edition & Morning College Football Thread

It's Saturday morning which means we have a full slate of college football queued up after a long work week, with our very own Bruins taking on the Golden Bears from our sister school to the north. But before we turn our focus to the Bears from Berkeley, let's take a look at the various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse, as well as the slate of games to watch this morning around the wider college football universe.

The weekend is finally here and it finally means we get to see our Bruins back in action after waiting for over a week.  For those of you in sunny Southern California, it means a chance to see our Bruins back at home in the Rose Bowl for the first time in three weeks, so it should be a packed house for our second Pac-12 conference game of the season.  Of course, the Bruins will be taking on the Berkeley Bears, with UCLA favored by 24.5 points against the woeful Bears.  With Saturday here, let's take a look at some various bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

Alright folks, those are your various bits and pieces of Saturday morning news from around the UCLA-iverse.  Let's take a look at the games that are on tap during the morning as we count down the hours until our Bruins take on the Bears at the Rose Bowl (all times are in PST):

  • Missouri (#25) at Georgia (#7) - 9 a.m., EPSN:  Missouri has jumped out to a 5-0 start and are ranked for the first time this year, and will take on a Georgia Bulldog team fresh off a close win in Knoxville in a big SEC match-up.
  • Oklahoma (#12) at Texas - 9 a.m., ABC:  It's one of the biggest rivalries in college football and the Red River Shootout gets underway for the 108th time this morning as the Sooners look to help pile on the misery in what could be Mack Brown's final season in Austin.
  • South Carolina (#14) at Arkansas - 9:21 a.m., ESPN3:  The Jadeveon Clowney show comes to Arkansas, with the Hogs looking to get their first conference win of the season.  The question remains whether the Gamecocks can focus on football with the sideshow surrounding their biggest star.

Those are the notable games for the morning slate (sorry, the rest were lame), but if you need something to keep you busy, you can read up on the everything for our game in the hub here, read the Bears' previews here, scan how the Bruins have been gearing up for today's game, or get your pre-game guesses in here.  Fire away in the open thread for the morning slate of games.
