The UCLA football team will need to be at its’ best on the defensive side of the ball when it plays Washington State at 7:45 p.m. Saturday at the Rose Bowl. The game will be televised on ESPN.
The Cougars have one of the best quarterbacks in the nation in Luke Falk who currently leads the nation in passing yards with 3,736 and is second in touchdown passes with 33.
The good news is the Bruins are coming off of a 41-0 win over Oregon State last Saturday so their injury riddled defense seems to be clicking on all cylinders at the right time of the season. Although Oregon State is 2-7 a shutout at this time of the season is still impressive.
After the Bruins oppose the 6-3 pass happy Cougars their last two regular season games are on the road against first place Utah and USC, which is tied for second place with the Bruins. The Bruins are 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the South division of the Pac-12. Utah is 8-1 and 5-1 in the South and USC is 6-3 and 4-2.
Against Oregon State in the Oregon rain UCLA ran the ball 52 times for 284 yards and completed 33 passes for 390 yards. Freshman running back Soso Jamabo led the ground attack with 90 yards and Paul Perkins had 89. Quarterback Josh Rosen completed 22 of 33 passes for 333 yards and 12 different UCLA receivers caught passes.
