UCLA is searching for their first victory in 2018 while Cal will be looking for their first conference win of the season.
UCLA has always been a second rate football school at best, but under Chip Kelly this year they are historically bad. Sure, the team he inherited wasn’t good, but it’s not as if UCLA was starting off the previous years with no wins heading into the second week of October.
If there is a bright side, it’s the fact that they were competitive against Washington only losing by seven points. However, that’s about the only silvering lining.
This is a team that is just a dumpster fire. It’ll be interesting to see if Kelly does get this program on the right track in the next couple of years.
UCLA ranks 120th in total offense and a 102nd in total defense. UCLA ranks 125th in points scored and 110th in points allowed. This is basically one of the worst college football teams residing in a power five conference, maybe even the worst.
Cal Golden Bears
It seemed as though Cal may have turned the corner after starting off 3-0, but they’ve kind of stalled out now going 0-2 to start Pac-12 play. They lost at home to Oregon and a road loss to Arizona.
At times, Cal looks really good, but then they’ll have stretches where they just are stuck in the mud. For example, they handled North Carolina until the end where the Tar Heels mounted a comeback and almost had a chance to tie the game.
Against Arizona last week, Cal was up at halftime, but they never put the Wildcats away. Arizona lingered and eventually won.
Cal plays pretty solid ball all the way around, they just need to do it for 60 minutes on both sides of the ball.
Now, they don’t exactly need to do that in this particular, but moving forward when they face the meat of their schedule in their final five games.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Cal -7.5
As for a pick, I’ve got Cal covering. The Golden Bears are at home and UCLA is an absolute dumpster fire. It’s tough to trust an awful team, especially to not lose by not more than a touchdown.
Cal has a strong defense that should shut down the Bruins offense and Cal should be able to put up more than enough points to secure the win and cover.
