Autzen Zoo Pac-12 Schedule Breakdown: UCLA Bruins Have Weapons To Compete


More from Pac-12 News

The UCLA Bruins will begin the regular season without one of their best players on the field. Cornerback Ishmael Adams was arrested for using force to rob an Uber driver of a cell phone.

He was suspended indefinitely

from the team. Offensively, the Bruins will be led by Running Back Paul Perkins. UCLA will be replacing Quarterback Brett Hundley and Defensive Star Eddie Vanderdoes and Myles Jack return for the Bruins in 2015. Josh Rosen was named the Starting Quarterback for the Bruins last week. Our own Mike Vamosi includes his thoughts on the Bruins this season.

Schedule: Virginia (9/5), @UNLV (9/12), BYU (9/19), @Arizona (9/26), Arizona State (10/3), @Stanford (10/15), California (10/22), Colorado (10/31), @Oregon State (11/7), Washington State (11/14), @Utah (11/21), @USC (11/28)

Non-Conference Thoughts: They’ll play two of their three games at the Rose Bowl while breaking in a new quarterback. Even their trip to Las Vegas isn’t that far plus expect fans to travel to that game making it a little less hostel.

Conference Schedule: Starting off with the Arizona and Bay Area schools with alternating home games won’t be a piece of cake. After that the back half looks manageable before facing crosstown foe USC to close the season for the UCLA Bruins.

Outlook: 10-2, I think UCLA wins their division but continue to struggle against Oregon and will drop an early road game in either Tucson or Palo Alto. This is a team with a lot of talent and should be pretty good under Jim Mora.

The UCLA Bruins open the season hosting Virginia on Saturday, September 5th(12:30pm Pacific Time, FOX)
