The UCLA Bruins are expected to beat the Washington State Cougars by most college football fans and experts, which is reflected by them being 16.5 point favorites, according to

UCLA has been playing very well this season under head coach Jim Mora, Jr., who has installed a new way of doing things in Westwood. The young coach has the Bruins sitting near the top of the Pac-12 with a 7-2 overall record and a 4-2 mark in conference. The only losses have come to quality programs in Oregon State and California.

After this weekend, the Bruins have two games remaining. The first of which is the biggest game of the year with No. 19 USC for Los Angeles bragging rights.

Washington State on the other hand has struggled again in 2012 to a 2-7 campaign. The Cougars biggest issue has been their complete lack of a rushing attack. Amazingly, Washington State averages just 29.1 yards on the ground per game, ranking them 124th in the nation.
