UCLA Bruins at Utah Utes Game Thread

Can the Bruins’ overcome the elevation and the fact that they will be without Josh Rosen who didn’t make the trip to Utah due to a concussion.

Let’s start with the bad news. Josh Rosen did not make the trip to Salt Lake City due to a concussion suffered in last week’s Washington game.

With that out of the way, Utah enters tonight’s game having lost their last four games.

Even though the Utes may have struggled recently, you should still expect Kyle Whittingham’s team to come in prepared because that’s what Whittingham does.

The big question heading into today’s game is: How will the Bruins adjust to the higher elevation in Salt Lake City?

After all, there’s been a lot of questions about the team’s strength and conditioning. The defense has looked totally gassed at times and having to play in the mountain air certainly isn’t going to help that.

Game Time Weather Forecast

There is a 40% chance of rain earlier in the day. So, that could make things a little bit slick during warmups.

But, as for the game itself, the Bruins may have gotten lucky with the weather forecast for tonight’s game. Sure, it will still be one of their coldest games of the year, but it isn’t going to be nearly as bad as it could be in Salt Lake City in November. The game time weather should be mostly cloudy and cool with a temperature of about 57 degrees at kickoff and only a 5-10% chance of precipitation.

By halftime, look for the temperature to drop to around 54 degrees where it should stay for the entire second half.

For optimum results, start the audio feed then pause your DVR and sync them up together so you don't have to listen to the Fox Sports 1 broadcast team if you don't want to, although, personally, I do think that Chris Meyers who is calling tonight’s game is probably one of the best in the business.
