The UCLA Bruins are seeking to improve to 10-2 and give themselves a rematch with Oregon in the Pac-12 title game with a win against the Stanford Cardinal.
No. 8 UCLA had a lot of preseason hype, and they were ranked in the top 10 in the preseason rankings. They eventually fell out after losing two consecutive games, but they have regained momentum since and find themselves right back where they started.
The Bruins proved their status as a Pac-12 title contender as they convincingly defeated USC, 38-20. Quarterback Brett Hundley threw for 326 yards with three touchdown passes and an interception.
The UCLA defense also put on a strong performance as they held USC quarterback Cody Kessler to 214 passing yards with one touchdown pass and an interception.
Stanford is already bowl eligible with a 6-5 record, but they are hoping to play spoiler against a UCLA team that will go to the Pac-12 title game if they win.
The Cardinal pulled off a road win against Cal as they defeated them, 38-17. Running back Remound Wright led the way for the Cardinal offense with 92 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 23 carries.
Quarterback Kevin Hogan was held without a touchdown pass and threw an interception, but he still completed 75 percent of his passes.
The Cardinal defense will face a stiff test from a red-hot Bruins offense, and beating them on the road will ultimately be too big of a challenge.
