Arizona Vs. UCLA: By The Numbers

The UCLA Bruins (3-4, 1-3 in the Pac-10) will have a tough task ahead of them Saturday, as their struggling offense has to battle the top defense in the Pac-10, and one of the best defenses in the country in the Arizona Wildcats. Arizona (6-1, 3-1) has allowed 14 or fewer points in five of their seven games.

The Bruins strength has been their running game, averaging over 200 yards per game, although with a struggling passing attack and mobile quarterback Kevin Prince out and/or ineffective they have totaled just 157 rushing yards in the last two games. Arizona's strength is also their rush defense, so unless quarterback Richard Brehaut can be effective and stretch out the field, Saturday could be a long day for UCLA.

Here is a look at the matchup, by the numbers:

  • UCLA ranks 22nd nationally in rushing offense, fourth in the Pac-10, with 209.9 yards per game
  • Arizona ranks seventh nationally in rushing defense, first in the Pac-10, allowing 90.9 yards per game
  • UCLA ranks 117th (out of 120 teams) nationally in passing offense, last in the Pac-10, with 104.6 yards per game
  • Arizona ranks 34th nationally in passing defense, second in the Pac-10, allowing 194.3 yards per game
  • UCLA ranks 102nd nationally in total offense, last in the Pac-10, with 314.4 yards per contest
  • Arizona ranks 10th nationally in total defense, first in the Pac-10, allowing 285.1 yards per game
  • UCLA ranks 95th nationally in scoring offense, ninth in the Pac-10, at 21.3 points per game
  • Arizona ranks seventh nationally in scoring defense, first in the Pac-10, allowing 13.4 points per game
