The Bruins have lost to the Wildcats for five consecutive years, last winning, 27-7, on Oct. 7, 2006. The Bruins hold the all-time record against the Wildcats at 19-15-2.
Last year's 48-12 loss was a bit bizarre. The Wildcats led, 42-7, with four seconds left in the first half when a streaker dressed as a referee tried to engage in the Bruins huddle. When he couldn't, he ran down the field, slowly taking off his clothes, and was subdued by authorities.
In the meantime, Arizona's Shaquille Richardson and UCLA's Taylor Embree took advantage of the distraction and started a bench-clearing brawl that took a few minutes to finish. Both players were ejected from the game. Six UCLA players and four Arizona players were suspended anywhere from half a game to two games for their role in the brawl.
The game against the Wildcats will be the first of three final home games on the Bruins' schedule. After Arizona, they head on the road to play at Washington State, before returning home to host the USC Trojans and Stanford Cardinal to close out the season.
