The UCLA Bruins will look to stay in the top 25 after returning to it as they face an inferior Colorado Buffaloes team.
Colorado will look to avoid the mantra of being called the worst team in the Pac-12 as they face No. 25 UCLA, who just climbed back into the rankings after a 36-34 win against Cal.
Meanwhile, the Buffaloes are 2-5 following a 56-28 loss to USC. Their defense allowed Trojans quarterback Cody Kessler to break a school record with seven touchdown passes, and Buffaloes quarterback Sefo Liufau struggled immensely.
Liufau threw for two touchdowns, but he was held to 143 yards on 23-of-35 passing and also threw two interceptions.
Their defense will face another tough offense in the Bruins, who have scored at least 27 points in their last four games. They currently sit at 5-2 after snapping a two-game losing streak.
Quarterback Brett Hundley has been on fire in the Bruins’ four-game stretch with 10 touchdown passes and three interceptions, and his accuracy has been incredible as he has completed 72.5 percent of his passes.
Running back Paul Perkins has also performed well, and he has rushed for a total of 813 yards and three touchdowns this season while averaging 6.3 yards per carry.
The Bruins offense will be too much for a Buffaloes team that continues to drown in stiff competition from the Pac-12.
