With a hurt Oregon Ducks team, they have yet to compete against Pac-12 foes, as they lost their second straight game.
The Bruins are in the same boat as they got knocked around by the Arizona Wildcats and hope to rebound back in Pasadena.
Filled with injuries, the Oregon Ducks lost their second game in a row as they were beat down by the Stanford Cardinals on the road.
On the season, the Ducks are 1-3 in Pac-12 play and have struggled to get their fast offense going.
With being down early 14-0 against Stanford, the Ducks were unable to get any answers in the game as they gave up 25 unanswered points from their first points.
Once again, the Ducks defense gave up over 500 total yards to an opposing team as they gave up 25 first downs as well.
The usually fast Ducks offense was stopped in their tracks as they turned the ball over three times and allowed a punt return touchdown. Not a good day for Oregon.
Oregon will enter this contest with averaging 223 yards through the air and over 244.6 yards on the ground as that will play a huge factor against a Bruins defense that is weak on the ground game.
When quarterback Josh Rosen struggles early in games, the team follows in his footsteps as they are unable to get past the tall mountain halfway through the game.
UCLA lost for the third time in four games as turnovers was once again the difference in this game.
With trailing early 17-7 after the first quarter, they were never able to get past their early mistakes and have another historic comeback that happened over a month and half ago.
UCLA has been struggling on defense for the past weeks as they allowed 605 total yards to Arizona as the offense barely passed 400 total yards in garbage time. The Bruins turned the ball over four times without generating one for Arizona.
With a weak running game, the Bruins have been going with Rosen through the air in all of their contests.
They come into this contest with throwing almost 400 yards per game, and scoring 39.5 points per game.
