These are the two teams expected to fill the basement of their respective division in the PAC 12.
Whichever one wins might be able to change that forecast.
There is definitely more pressure on UCLA for this one but at home it was easy to make them the favourite.
Oregon State Beavers
The jury is still out on Oregon State this season. Their lone win was over Cal Poly but two of their three losses have been by just three points. They are competing.
Jonathan Smith has the offense doing some good things. They have scored at least 28 points in every game this season.
Jake Luton is 6’7″ so it might never look smooth when he is on the field. The numbers speak for themselves this season though, he is completing 60% of his passes and has yet to throw an interception. If he keeps that up they will be in this game too.
The defense has been the downfall of the team this season. There are not a lot of players on that side of the ball and when they really need a play they are coming up short.
Oregon State has been covering games this season and this is a spot where I expect that to continue.
UCLA was not able to build off its exciting win up at Washington State. That was disappointing in terms of the absolute result but as well because the offense looked nowhere near what it was up in Pullman.
Against Wazzu Dorian Thompson-Robinson had his best game as a Bruin but last week he injured his ankle.
He is questionable for this one and I don’t like the Bruins to be able to keep pace without him.
Without DTR the Bruins will look to feature Josh Kelley even more than they already do. He can be really effective but I worry they are going to get too one dimensional.
Chip Kelly no longer guarantees offensive wizardry.
UCLA should have better talent pretty much across the board but that has not been showing up for them the last couple of seasons. If D

I like Oregon State a lot in this one and it becomes one of my stronger plays of the day if the UCLA quarterback can’t go. Without him they probably just lose outright.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oregon State +6.5
Even if DTR plays he is no guarantee of a legitimate offense for the Bruins. Unless they can put at least 30 points on the board they are not going to win at home.
UCLA should be in desperation mode but I think Kelly might be a little too comfortable right now. I do not like the way this game is set up for the home team and the Rose Bowl is more picturesque than fearsome.
