College Football Week 14: #17 UCLA At #8 Stanford

#17 UCLA
#8 Stanford
Stanford v UCLA
Stanford v UCLA
Jim Mora had to answer questions about whether his team gave max effort on Saturday after a 35-17 loss to Stanford. A win would have sent the Bruins to Eugene to play Oregon; instead, they’ll have to redeem themselves against the Cardinal on Friday night.
Winner David Shaw and staff figure they’ll see more, scheme-wise, from UCLA in the rematch. How Stanford prepares will be critical.
Winner The Bruins didn’t do much offensively on Saturday, especially on the ground, averaging just 2.2 yards per carry. It will take a more balanced effort to win the rematch.
Stanford isn’t going to light up the scoreboard, but this offense is no longer a liability with Kevin Hogan at quarterback.
UCLA will have to be tough against the run, as Stepfan Taylor had success against them.
Winner No team in the country has given up fewer rush yards this season than Stanford.
Special Teams
The Bruins fumbled a kickoff, which Stanford took in for a score.
Winner On Saturday, Punter Daniel Zychlinski mishandled a snap and was tackled before he could kick.

The Winner Is

Stanford v UCLA
Winner #8 Stanford
3 out of 4

Stanford should have plenty of confidence, having just beaten UCLA, and has the added advantage of playing at home. Expect the Cardinal to earn the Pac-12’s Rose Bowl bid.
