How to Watch Utah Utes at UCLA Bruins: Game Time, TV Schedule, Radio and More

New, 2 comments

The Bruins welcome the Utes to the Rose Bowl in a battle for first place in the Pac-12 South.

NCAA Football: UCLA at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

What a day to live in Los Angeles! There are three games tonight. Obviously, Game Three of the World Series will be played at Dodger Stadium. The Clippers are on the road tonight against the Houston Rockets. And, of course, the UCLA Bruins are at home tonight against the Utah Utes.

“Wait, Joe. I get mentioning the Dodgers, but what do the Clippers have to do with anything?” you ask.

Simple. Tonight’s confluence of games has created a massive logjam on LA radio stations and, unfortunately, it’s the Bruins who are getting bounced around your radio dial.

The World Series is the World Series. So, no one can really complain about the Dodgers getting to stay on 570 AM. But, why exactly are the Clippers getting precedence over the Bruins on alternate station 1150 AM? They are, after all, the most recent addition to the IHeartRadio stations, having made the switch when KFWB changed formats from Sports Talk to Spanish. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because their game actually starts earlier with a 5 pm PT tip-off, but it always bothers me that the Bruins don’t seem to have a lot of control on the radio.

If I were in charge either of the UCLA Athletic Department and/or IMG, who produces the broadcasts, I would have insisted that IHeartRadio put the game on KFI AM 640, due to the station’s range and ratings. But that didn’t happen.

Instead, this evening’s game will be broadcast in its entirety on AM870 KRLA and will be joined in progress by 1150 AM following the conclusion of the Clippers game against the Houston Rockets. So, you will have two radio choices for listening to tonight’s game.

Let’s look at the Keys to the Game.

Keys to the Game

  1. Stop the run. After last Saturday’s game against Arizona, the Bruins need to do a much better job stopping the run tonight. If Utah is able to run the ball at will, the Utes will likely win the game. We’ve seen it before from the Utes. Two years ago, Joe Williams returned from retirement to run for a school single game rushing record 332 yards at the Rose Bowl.
  2. Win the takeaway game. Last week, UCLA used takeaways to overcome the shortcomings of the run defense. While that may not work as well against the Utes, the fact remains that it’s hard for an opponent to score if they don’t have the football.
  3. Reduce the mistakes. Last week, the Bruins were back into double-digits in penalties. They can’t do that again and expect to beat Utah. UCLA doesn’t need to play flawless football tonight, but they do need to cut down on the number of mistakes significantly.

Here’s how to watch, listen and stream this week’s game.
