The UCLA Bruins may be tied for first in the Pac-12 South Division, but that doesn't gain the Bruins any favor in Las Vegas. The Bruins are seven-point underdogs in their matchup against the Pac-12 Conference newcomers, the Utah Utes at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, per Odds Shark.
Utah (5-4, 2-4) has struggled in its first season in the Pac-12, picking up just its second conference win last week against Arizona. Utah, like the UCLA (5-4, 4-2), has won two straight games. Both schools are seeking their first three-game winning streak of the season.
UCLA has won eight of their nine meetings all-time with Utah, dating back to 1933. The schools have met only twice in the past 36 seasons, with the Bruins winning 31-10 at the Rose Bowl in 2006 and losing 44-6 in Salt Lake City in 2007. The Bruins are 3-6 against the spread this season.
Saturday's 3:30 p.m. PDT game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For for UCLA football news and analysis, be sure to read Bruins Nation.
