California-Los Angeles Bruins
It has been an unforgettable season for the UCLA Bruins who have been struggling. This is despite Josh Rosen leading the nation in touchdown passes through three games. Unfortunately, miscues and turnovers have been negating his efforts. UCLA needs to address this problem and avoid falling into the Cardinal trap. Each lost possession is an opportunity for Stanford. With their current run, it will prove costly. Their ground game is something the Cardinal will have to be prepared for. They boast an average of 142.8 yards and also 254.5 yards from the air. They are managing to score 26.2 points per game and are limiting opponents to 37.7 points per outing.
Players to watch: Dorian Thompson-Robinson QB 89 CMP 158 ATT 1,243 YDS 56.3 CMP% 7.9 AVG 94 LNG 11 TD 6 INT; Joshua Kelley RB 101 ATT 395 YDS 3.9 AVG 36LNG; Demetric Felton RB 59 ATT 307 YDS 5.2 AVG 75 LNG; Kyle Philips WR 21 REC 242 YDS 11.5 AVG 32 LNG; Jaylen Erwin WR 20 REC 242 YDS 12.1 AVG 39 LNG
The Stanford Cardinal have little reason to lose. They are on a two-game winning streak and coming off a bye week. They are one of the top 25 teams in the NCAAF, averaging 20.7 points. However, they need to do better on points allowed. They are allowing opponents to score 26.5 points per game, something the Cardinals could take advantage of. This could be a waterloo that the Bruins may take advantage of. Bryce Love will be among the running backs to watch out for. He has been putting up crazy numbers and has been starring in explosive plays for Stanford. Help is expected to come from guys like Keller Christ, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Connor Wedington, Dalton Schultz and Trenton Irwin.
