After losing to Stanford by 18 Saturday, the Bruins are opening as 10-point underdogs for their rematch in the Pac-12 Championship game this Friday.
The Bruins were romped. 35-17, by Stanford this past weekend as the Cardinal stormed into the Rose Bowl and never let UCLA have the lead even once.
Stepfan Taylor was an unstoppable force for Stanford as he totaled 142 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries to help his team out-rush UCLA 221 to 73. Then again, it's not like the Bruins helped their cause much by compiling 135 penalty yards on 12 flags.
The Bruins will also have to fix their offensive line issues as they allowed QB Brett Hundley to be sacked a season-high seven times while giving up nine tackles for loss.
This will be the second straight year that UCLA has participated in the Pac-12 Championship. In the inaugural game last season, the Bruins lost to the Oregon Ducks in Eugene, 49-31.
