College Football Week 14: #17 UCLA At #8 Stanford
|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.||Coaching||David Shaw and staff figure they’ll see more, scheme-wise, from UCLA in the rematch. How Stanford prepares will be critical.|
|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.||Offense||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.||Defense||No team in the country has given up fewer rush yards this season than Stanford.|
|The Bruins fumbled a kickoff, which Stanford took in for a score.||Special Teams||On Saturday, Punter Daniel Zychlinski mishandled a snap and was tackled before he could kick.|
The winner is
