The Utah Utes will play the UCLA Bruins in a PAC-12 Game on Saturday afternoon at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The Utah Utes are 4-1 (2-0) this season after they defeated Oregon State by a score of 42-16 in Week 5. Utah was actually outgained in this game by a total of 417-361, but was able to force four turnovers in the win. The Utah offense is averaging 42 points per game with 250.2 passing yards per game and 203.4 rushing yards per game. Cameron Rising has thrown for 1,153 yards, 13 touchdowns, and two interceptions, while also rushing for 189 yards and one touchdown for the Utes this season. Tavion Thomas has rushed for 295 yards and four scores, while Devaughn Vele has caught 21 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns for Utah. The Utah defense is giving up 14.4 points per game and 278.6 yards per game.

The UCLA Bruins are 5-0 (2-0) this season after they defeated Washington by a score of 40-32 in their last game. UCLA gained 499 total yards and went 10-14 on third down conversions in the win. The UCLA offense is averaging 41.4 points per game with 293.2 passing yards per game and 213.2 rushing yards per game. Dorian Thompson-Robinson has thrown for 1,211 yards, 11 touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing for 223 yards and three touchdowns for the Bruins this season. Zach Charbonnet has rushed for 417 yards and five scores, while Jake Bobo has caught 21 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns for UCLA. The UCLA defense is allowing 20.8 points per game and 318 yards per game.

Utah is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 October games. The over is 7-1 in Utah’s last 8 road games. UCLA is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 6-1 in UCLA’s last 7 conference games. Utah is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

UCLA is coming off of a huge win against Washington and will look to have the same magic in this game. Utah has played very good this season and their defense has looked great in every game, except the loss at Florida. UCLA has a very high-powered offensive attack, so it will be interesting to see how Utah does against them. I like Utah to get the big road win here.
