The UCLA Bruins and Arizona State Sun Devils face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Sun Devil Stadium.
The UCLA Bruins have been an entertaining team to watch so far this year but that has only resulted in two wins. One of those wins for the Bruins did come in their last game against the Arizona Wildcats, a game they won 27-10. Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson has missed the last two games and that is a big loss for this squad. This is still a Chip Kelly led offense and on the season they are averaging 34.5 points per game which is 27th best in the nation. On defense, UCLA is giving up 26.5 yards per game and this might be better than some of the Chip Kelly’s defenses of year’s past. If Thompson Robinson can’t go it’s going to be Chase Griffin who gets the start and on the season he has thrown for 324 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions.
On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona State Sun Devils who are dealing with COVID issues and if this game does happen, they are going to be very shorthanded. Arizona State has played one one game this season and that happened ll the way back on NOvember 7th against the UCLA Bruins. Arizona State probably should have won that game, At quarterback, Arizona State is led by Jayden Daniels who has thrown for 134 yards and a touchdown and also added another 111 runs on the ground. In this game, if Arizona State wants to come away with a victory, the defense is going to need to find a way to lock down a very good Bruins offense.
There are so many questions surrounding this Arizona State team, but UCLA’s offense is going to keep them in this game. Arizona State will cover the spread with ease.
