UCLA Bruins’ Fan Confidence Nears Season Low After Oregon State Loss

New, 120 comments

This week’s fan confidence poll plummeted again after the Bruins lost to the Beavers.

Oregon State v. UCLA
Chip Kelly may soon be the only one who believes the UCLA football program is moving in the right direction.

After the UCLA Bruins lost to the Oregon State Beavers this weekend, only one in ten Bruin fans now believe that the UCLA football program is moving in the right direction.

That’s down from almost half of respondents to the weekly Bruins Nation fan confidence poll just two weeks ago and is just a third of the respondents who thought so after last week’s loss to Arizona. It now sits at exactly 10%.

The Bruins Nation Week 6 FanPulse Confidence Rating dropped to 10.0%.

The Bruins Nation FanPulse is a survey of more than 100 Bruins Nation readers who have agreed to take a weekly survey on college football. I want to encourage our readers to have their voice heard on a weekly basis by signing up to be a part of the FanPulse.

Of course, the question about the direction of the program is just one part of this week’s FanPulse. The other part is the Top 25 where fans are asked to rank the top 25 college football teams.

So, this week, we have the sixth Bruins Nation Top 5 poll of the season along with the SB Nation national Top 25 poll. The Alabama Crimson Tide remain in the top spot of both polls while the Clemson Tigers are back up to second in the Bruins Nation poll and still second in the national poll. The Ohio State Buckeyes are third and the Georgia Bulldogs are fourth.

Let’s take a look at both polls.
