UCLA will face something on Saturday that it has not yet faced this season: a balanced attack on offense. They'll face an Arizona offense that is ranked fifth in the FBS with 1,754 scrimmage yards and averaging 9.0 yards per play.
Given its dominant run game and solid defense, the team should run through Colorado, Oregon State and Washington State putting it at 9-1 when it visits Utah. Nick Wilson had a great game running the ball in the victory, dashing 19 times for 143 yards and two TDs.
Senior Nicole Edelman and Simpson are directing the Buffs to a.233 hitting percentage. Up next: home vs. No. 21 Stanford. 17 (now No. 11) Hawai'i on the road and then-No.
The UCLA Bruins are a perfect 3-0 straight up and against the spread in their last three games against the Arizona Wildcats. "Their offense has been playing a lot better". Freshmen outside hitters Tyler Spriggs and Kendra Dahlke average 2.79 and 2.03 kills/set, respectively. The Cardinal is all alone at the top.
This week's national poll features seven Pac-12 Conference teams, led by USC at No. 3. They are talking about how they feel about the Bruins defense and what they perceive as trash talking and chippy-ness towards their team. UA welcomes honorable mention All-American Nikki Attea from West Virginia as well as the Mountaineer's primary libero Anna Panagiotakopoulos. This demanding week-to-week production schedule gives viewers a near real-time look into the season for each team. extremely poor in Week 1 against Northwestern, but it turns out the Wildcats defense is legit (they've allowed 16 points in three games).
This unit - along with the running backs and the offensive line - really saved the Bruins on Saturday. Nacua said the Cougars' home win over Boise State was "like a party" on defense, and that same passion and excitement was missing at then-No.
While the out-of-state schools have a puncher's chance, the team with the best shot to lure him away from his USC pledge appears to be the hated Bruins.
Now in its fourth season, the Pac-12 Network has been a major disappointment in generating revenue. However, this current Bruins squad is much better suited for dealing with those particular teams and should win against a not-as-good Utes team. There are no other top 25 matchups. Arizona has not been ranked higher than 13th since finishing the 2005 season seventh.
In 2001, USC lost to No. 7 Oregon in Autzen Stadium. After that momentum shifted to the Ducks as they won 51-27.
7 USC (2-1, last week: 1) Steve Sarkisian's Trojans forgot to "bleeping fight on, bebay!" 10, Oregon State. 15, Stanford. It is just the third time in the history of the Conference, the last two times were when it was the Pacific Coast Conference in 1919 and 1921. The Cougars forced three interceptions and five interceptions - but they also only registered five tackles for loss and didn't record a sack for the first time of the year. That set the school record for points (77), total yards (792) and rushing yards (499). UA has led the conference in digs each of the last two seasons.
The Beavers' first TV matchup of the season will come on December, 3, when Oregon State travels to Marquette for a game that will air on Fox Sports 1.
Rosen's struggles can potentially be attributed to the fact that he was facing a defensive approach that he hadn't seen yet at the collegiate level. There were also plays where Rosen looked off a receiver who ended up being open right afterward.
"It's a testament to our toughness", UCLA linebacker Deon Hollins said of the close win. I knew we needed a score.
The Wildcats lose several key contributors from the 2014 club that will need to be replaced in 2015.
