*4 Star NCAA FB ATS Play of the Week* The UCLA Bruins are coming off a strange Sunday afternoon contest against Cal where the Bruins defense was amazing. They allowed only 2.8 ypp in that game. Was that more about Cal or UCLA's defense improving? I suspect it was more about Cal.
UCLA gave up 525 yards to Colorado in game one. They couldn't even slow them down. This Oregon offense is far better than that Colorado defense. Oregon actually ranks first in the nation in yards per play. It is only a two game sample size, and I don't think the Ducks are the top offense in the country, but they are very good. This is an Oregon offense that can break a lot of big gainers. UCLA has given up a ton of explosive plays in recent years, and I expect more of the same this year.
Dorian Thompson Robinson is talented, but he makes too many mistakes and turns the football over a bunch. This Oregon defense is loaded in the secondary and I think they'll force some turnovers here.
The market is too high on UCLA coming off the surprising win over Cal. This is slightly shorter rest for UCLA, and they are going to play the best team in the PAC 12. The line here is too short.
