The UCLA Bruins look for a bounce back win as they open conference play against Stanford. The Cardinal look to reset their season and concentrate on conference play.
UCLA lost a hard fought road game against the Memphis Tigers, 48-45. The Stanford Cardinal lost their second game of the season last week on the road to San Diego State. Arguably the best running team in the nation.
UCLA’s loss last week against the Memphis Tigers, put a huge blow in the Bruins title hopes this season. The loss also all but ruined Bruins quarterback Josh Rosen’s chances at the Heisman trophy.
The season is not over yet. UCLA still has to play a full PAC-12 schedule. If the Bruins were to run the table, then everything would look a lot differently than it does now, heading into week four.
If UCLA wants a shot at the PAC-12 title, they must get better on defense. The defense has been bad all season, including giving up 560 total yards of offense against Memphis last week.
Stanford’s shot at a FBCS playoff birth is over this year. Losing an early conference game against USC in week one, then giving up a bad road loss against San Diego State, all but ruined everything for the Cardinal this year.
The most they are playing for now, is the chance to share the Pac -12 title (if they go undefeated) and a B list bowl invitation. If the Cardinal can get a win this week, that could give them a spark the rest of the season.
The Cardinal want a redemption in week four. They must play better this week against a suspect UCLA defensive unit. If they can’t move the ball against UCLA, the Cardinal are a lot worse off than presumed to be.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Pick
This is a make or break game for the Bruins this week. Expect Josh Rosen to bring his Brett Favre mentality into this must win game against Stanford on the road.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UCLA+7.5.
Josh Rosen has been carrying the load all year offensively for the Bruins. The Stanford defense, should be well prepared for UCLA’s one dimensional offense this week.
Look for the Rosen to put ups points early, but struggle throughout the game to get the win. The Stanford offense should look solid at home against UCLA’s horrible defense. That said, take the Bruins to cover. Stanford will still be in disarray form last week surprising loss.
