It’s a full slate of games on the day after Thanksgiving, and there are a lot of big games and a few rivalry games.
In this one it is a rivalry game, and a big Pac 12 showdown, that is an elimination game of sorts.
The California Golden Bears make the trip to the Rose Bowl Stadium to take on the UCLA Bruins. With both of these teams with five wins, the winner will make a bowl game, and the loser will not.
The Golden Bears won the match up last year 36-10.
California Golden Bears
After a nice start to the season the California Golden Bears come into this games struggling a bit having lost three of the last four games.
Two of those games were lost by a total of four points though, so they easily could have seven wins right now if they could finish games better.
For the Golden Bears their struggles have been because of the coaching change that took place this last off season.
Last year they were more of a high tempo offense that didn’t play a lot of defense. This year they are trying to play a more slow tempo offense, and more focus on the defensive side of the ball.
Usually with a coaching change though it takes a few years for that new coach to get their players in place, and that has been the case here.
To win this game the defense needs to find a way to slow down Josh Rosen. He is a quarterback who will be playing on Sunday’s and their defense is going to have their hands full trying to slow him down.
The UCLA Bruins had a lot of turnover in this last week, and it will be interesting to see how they come out in this game.
Head coach Jim Mora was fired after six years with the team, and his players really seemed to like him, so the coaching staff is really going to have to work to get the guys up for this game.
For the Bruins it starts and ends with Josh Rosen. He comes into this game with 3515 yards, 24 touchdowns and one interception.
If they want to win this game Josh Rosen is going to really need to sling the ball all around. This will probably be a bit of a high scoring affair, so he is going to need at least three touchdowns probably.

This game all comes down to Rosen, and I think he will deliver in a big way in this one. I think he will sling it all over the field and rack up the touchdowns.
