College Football Week 10: #24 Arizona At #25 UCLA
|Rich Rodriguez notched his signature victory last week against USC. Many thought he would have success out west and things are looking up for the Wildcat program. Getting his team to refocus for another big game will be tough.||Coaching||With its win over Arizona State last week, UCLA has as good a chance as any team to win the Pac-12 South. Jim Mora’s team faces three ranked opponents down the stretch.|
|The nation got a glimpse of Mike Scott’s talents on Saturday when he threw for 369 yards and ran for 100. He will need another huge game against the Bruins.||Offense||The Bruins’ offense rolled last week, amassing 45 points last week. When this unit is clicking, it is dangerous on the ground and through the air.|
|Rodriguez admitted his defense is not where it needs to be and relies on turnovers to be effective. It got five of them last week, upping the season total to 19.||Defense||The bad news for UCLA last week was that its defense gave up 535 yards and 43 yards. This unit has been wildly inconsistent all season.|
|The Wildcats’ special teams are middle-of-the-pack; they’re much better when the other team is receiving the ball (punts and kickoffs) than when they have possession (field goals, returns).||Special Teams||Freshman Ka’imi Fairbairn hit the game-winning field goal as time expired last week. Overall, the Bruins rank 100th in special teams efficiency.|
We'll just call it a tie
