The UCLA Bruins are off to a great start under new head coach Jim Mora, as they have won their first three games, including Saturday's 37-6 romp over the Houston Cougars at the Rose Bowl. UCLA is a good bet to make that 4-0 as the Bruins are a big favorite over the Oregon St. Beavers on Saturday.
UCLA opened as an 11-point favorite over the Beavers in their Pac-12 Conference opener. Next Saturday's 12:30 p.m. PDT game is the third consecutive home game for the Bruins, and will be televised by ABC and ESPN2.
The Bruins (3-0) are undefeated against the spread this season. UCLA is No. 19, Oregon State No. 26 in the latest Associated Press poll.
In a bit of a quirk, Oregon State has only played one game so far this season. Their Sept. 1 season opener against Nicholls State was postponed, and their only win came against the then No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers, 10-7 on Sept. 8.
