Oregon Ducks at UCLA Bruins Game Thread

Can the Bruins’ defense stop the Ducks’ Royce Freeman?

Both teams enter today’s game having lost last weekend. In the case of the Ducks, they’ve actually lost their last two. So, both teams should come into the Rose Bowl today hungry for a win.

UCLA really needs a win today as they are about to embark on what should be the toughest part of their schedule when they head to Seattle next weekend to play the Washington Huskies. Does that mean the Bruin will be looking past this game? Maybe. Could this be a “trap” game? I’m not so sure that a conference foe like Oregon can be called a trap game.

But, one thing is for sure: If the Bruins haven’t figured out how to play defense, it’s going to be a long afternoon.

Game Time Weather Forecast

Today will be this year’s game that the sideline shift could help the Bruins. The game time temperature should be about 79 degrees.

By halftime, look for the temperature to increase to about 82 and it should hit a high of 83 sometime in the second half.

The Pac-12 Network announcers for today’s game are Roxy Bernstein and Anthony Herron, the same guys who called last weekend’s desert disaster. But, the game was the story not how the announcers were mispronouncing player names like it was the previous two weeks with ESPN’s Mark Jones and Rod Gilmore. So, that’s the good news. But, it’s always ok to listen to the game here on BN.
