UCLA Vs. Arizona State: Bruins Not Thinking About Pac-12 Title Game Just Yet

The No. 20 Arizona Sun Devils will be visiting the Rose Bowl on Saturday. If the UCLA Bruins can manage to defeat them, they will move into a tie for first place in the South Division of the Pac-12. That would take the Bruins one step closer to potentially being the first-ever Pac-12 Conference champions. But as far as head coach Rick Neuheisel is concerned, the team has their minds firmly in the present, according to Chris Foster of the Los Angeles Times.

"I think our mind-set needs to be what we do rather than what might or might not be. We learned that lesson the hard way," said Neuheisel, in reference to the last time this season the Bruins were looking at moving into a first-place tie in their division. They wound up suffering a 48-12 loss to the Arizona Wildcats that week.

The Bruins are hoping that they will fare against Arizona's other Pac-12 team, and are most likely feeling bolstered by their big 31-14 win over the Cal Golden Bears. If things go UCLA's way, they'll leave Saturday night's game tied with the Sun Devils at number one in the division.
