Rose Bowl, Pasadena
Written by Scott Reichel
Week nine of college football continues as #24 Arizona State travels to the Rose Bowl to play against UCLA on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 P.M. This will be the 36th meeting between these two teams. These two teams have not met since last season when the Sun Devils beat the Bruins at home by a score of 31-28.
Arizona State enters this game with a solid 5-2 record and a spot in the AP Top 25 rankings. However, it got embarrassed on the road last week against Utah and lost by 18 points. Now, Arizona State has to play another conference road game as it will look to move to 3-2 in Pac-12 games. There is also added pressure for this game since the Sun Devils will go back to being unranked with another loss. However, UCLA is a much worse team that Utah so perhaps Arizona State will find a way to leave this conference road game with a victory.
Chip Kelly has the Bruins in awful form headed into this game. Specifically, UCLA is one of the worst teams in the conference entering this game as it has a 2-5 record. However, it did manage to win last week against Stanford on the road by the score of 34-16. Now, UCLA gets to return home for another conference game as it will look to build off of last week's performance. The Bruins have not been eliminated from bowl game contention yet so a victory here would drastically increase their odds of making a bowl game.
