UCLA remains one of just three programs with fan confidence under 20%.

On Saturday, the UCLA Bruins were crushed by Oklahoma, 48-14. This morning, we have the results from the weekly Bruins Nation FanPulse Fan Confidence poll.

I’ve got to admit that I was prepared for last week’s 8.1% to join Stanford at 0%, but it didn’t happen. In fact, it didn’t drop at all. Apparently, it actually went back up into double-digits.

That said, it’s still the third worst among Power 5 schools. Only Stanford and Rutgers, both of whom are at 0%, are worse than the Bruins.

The Bruins Nation Week 3 FanPulse Confidence Rating rebounded slightly to 12.8%.

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 third Bruins Nation Top 25 poll along with the SB Nation national Top 25 poll. The biggest difference between the two polls is that Bruin fans ranked the Oklahoma Sooners fourth in front of LSU, while the nationwide poll has the LSU Tigers ahead of the Sooners. Bruin fans ranked the Utah Utes, a fellow Pac-12 South team, lower than the national poll did, while they ranked two Pac-12 North schools, Oregon and Washington State, higher.

Let’s take a look at both polls.
