The #20 California Golden Bears travel to Pasadena to play the UCLA Bruins.

The Bruins are back in black tonight as they debut their City alternate unis, but the 2013 black unis looked better.

It's almost game time!

If you're like me and heading out to the Rose Bowl tonight, that means you're probably stuck in traffic right now. Personally, I believe that whomever is responsible for starting a college football game in Southern California at 6pm on a Thursday should be shot on sight. I'm not sure if that's someone at ESPN or at the Pac-12 Conference, but, whatever.... It is what it is.

As long as the Bruins come more prepared to play tonight's game than last week's game, it should be a good one.

The crowd will be sparser than usual for a game against UC Berkeley because it is a Thursday night game and all those Bay Area folks are likely staying home because they need to work tomorrow.

While you're waiting for kickoff, check out our other articles on this week's game which you can find in our UC Berkeley at UCLA story stream. There, you will find my keys to tonight's game along with other news and notes.

As we've done all season, you can use this thread to listen to the game while chiming into the comments section to discuss the game with other Bruins Nation members.

Game Time Weather Forecast

It should be sunny and a comfortable 70 degrees at kickoff. Looks for the temperature to drop to 64 degrees over the course of the game. That's almost parka weather for natives of Southern California, but, in reality, it should still be comfortable.

This is your UC Berkeley at UCLA First Half Game Thread.

Go Bruins!!!
